Carbon negative packaging: The Carbon Trust certifies our bags

The Carbon Trust’s independent certification arm has certified our biopolyethylene bags to PAS2060, the internationally-recognised standard for certifying carbon negativity.

Sustainability matters. As one of the UK’s leading suppliers of plastic packaging we are acutely conscious of this. This is why we are constantly taking steps to develop products made from cleaner plastic polymers with smaller carbon footprints.

“We recognise that as a business we need to play a role in the transition to a low carbon economy. By working with the Carbon Trust to better understand the lifecycle impacts of our biopolyethylene bags we can be confident that they [helping] to provide our clients with a more sustainable product.”

Our biopolyethylene is one such polymer, designed specifically to lower our clients’ carbon footprints and contribute towards a cleaner, more sustainable carbon economy. We are therefore delighted to learn that the Carbon Trust’s independent certification arm has certified our biopolyethylene bags to PAS2060, the internationally-recognised standard for certifying carbon negativity.

We hope the carbon negative packaging assists our customers in reducing their own carbon footprints.

This is the first time the Carbon Trust have certified a carbon negative packaging product.

The Carbon Trust is an independent, expert partner of leading organisations around the world, helping them contribute to and benefit from a more sustainable future through carbon reduction, resource efficiency strategies and commercialising low carbon technologies.

“We recognise that as a business we need to play a role in the transition to a low carbon economy,” says our Managing Director James Woollard. “By working with the Carbon Trust to better understand the lifecycle impacts of our biopolyethylene bags we can be confident that they are in fact carbon negative, which helps us to provide our clients with a more sustainable product.”
