For us at aPak, environmental responsibility is an important factor of our daily work. We are aware that the Earth’s resources are limited and do everything we can to take care of them in the best way possible.
Our responsibility to the environment
At aPak, we work actively to keep errors, mistakes, and unnecessary environmental impact from occurring to begin with, rather than trying to fix them after the fact. Read more about our Zero defect plan.
When we at aPak talk about creating a better environment, we mean everything from production and materials to shipping and loading. We set high standards for our suppliers and only buy material produced under “good conditions “. You can read more in our Code of Conduct. When we develop new packaging solutions and logistics systems, we always consider environmental impact and we always push ourselves to “make it a little greener”.
In practice, this means that we always think twice when choosing material supplier and package sizes, for instance. Sometimes the smallest and most simple adjustments make a big difference! We are proud of the environmental work we do today, but we believe that even more can be done. Together we can do our share for sustainable development!
We are always actively looking for material, production processes, and delivery methods that are less harmful to the environment, and maintain our product quality.
Our responsibility to the society
For us at Apak, it is important to be able to give back. There are an incredible number of amazing organizations that do so much for the people who are in need. At aPak we have chosen to partner with one of these organizations and with the Göteborgs Stadsmission we support people living in exclusion. We think it is important to take active social responsibility and our goal is to do even more in the future for the people who need it most.
Our responsibility to people
Apak has a strong vision of being a profitable company that can develop sustainable and long term while providing a workplace where people feel safe, feel good and are having fun! We believe that the key to a successful company is our employees and together we form the aPak family – the very foundation of our prosperous company.
APak – Your Corporate Partner
Together with the Gothenburg City Mission, aPak helps support people in need. In this way, we take an active social responsibility and do our best to help. Our goal is to do even more in the future for those who need a little help.
Together we recycle
APak works together with the organization FTI, and meet their recycling requirements. FTI is a recycling company that works to ensure that packaging and newspapers in Sweden are collected and recycled. We think this is a good thing! Ashes to ashes and dust to dust (and paper and plastic to paper and plastic!) Read more
WE BUY ELECTRICITY THAT IS ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND
We buy the greenest electricity we can in order to make as much difference as we can. Increasing demand for electricity from renewable energy sources means that the demand for electricity from fossil-fired plants declines.
APak is certified under ISO 9001:2015, which ensures that we maintain a consistently high quality. Our zero defect program combined with the continuous improvement of our business allows our customers to always receive the highest quality in all contacts with us.
Our environmental management system is also certified under ISO 14001:2015 and our policy is based on our products and services to always be as environmentally friendly as possible. Read more about our environmental values here.
