Optimising pallet and timber packaging design, producing products from a sustainable resource, adopting a commitment to material minimisation, introducing risk management initiatives and offering our knowledge and experience to reduce customer cost are at the heart of who we are and what we do.
Why choose timber?
It is increasingly clear as an organisation that the issues of sustainability and minimising our carbon footprint are not just a matter for this business but for all businesses generally.
As a business that manufactures from raw materials it is increasingly important to Rodpak that we adopt an active role to achieve optimal energy use and carbon emission and demonstrate leadership in forest product industry sustainability.
For our organisation this means that we will adopt a learning mindset in what will make a difference. Achieving a deeper understanding of our impact on greenhouse gas emissions, building our knowledge and raising the awareness of our people and changing business practice at the practical level will increase our sustainability and in turn our customer's carbon footprint.
Improvement in any corporate element demands a starting point. Rodpak has recently appointed independent industry specialists who have conducted a review and audit of our current energy use, waste and other indirect emissions.
The report has concluded that overall the Rodpak business has a “relatively minor environmental impact”. These findings will provide us with an excellent means to initiate programs that further reduce our greenhouse impact.
