Tecniplast Germany and Tecniplast UK: 2 recycling champions!
Our recycling initiative turns 10 years old this year and has been an outstanding success!
Clients from around the world have supported this venture and our sister companies enjoy some healthy competition.
Since the beginning Tecniplast Germany’s recycling performance has been excellent and they have nearly always achieved first place.
In total they have recycled:
- More than 88 tons of plastic
- 1,600 tons of avoided CO2 emissions in the atmosphere
Many Congratulations to our German colleagues! Tecniplast UK was recycling champion in 2019:
- More than 8 tons of plastic recycled
- More than 149 tons of avoided CO2 in the atmosphere
Maybe this year Tecniplast UK will win again!
The objective of all Tecniplast sister companies has always been the same: reduce the negative impact of waste on the environment, public health and ensure the most efficient use of resources. This recycling scheme is just one of the ways in which we reduce waste in landfill sites and help limit greenhouse gas emissions.
Our Recycling project has enabled Tecniplast to receive a number of awards including Environmental and Sustainability award in 2018. We achieved this accolade through the innovative nature of our recycling project and for the challenges faced by the Group in implementing the scheme.
The recycling project that Tecniplast developed 10 years ago has enabled us to achieve a "circular economy model" for plastic, thanks to innovative technology that allows recycled plastics to have a second life.
The best number we see:
More than 3.000 tons in 10 years of total avoided CO2 emissions in the atmosphere
Thanks particularly to Tecniplast Germany and Tecniplast UK!
This not only saves valuable fossil resources, but also reduces transport and cost.
Two aspects that reduce the CO2-footprint significantly. So, do we have any future projects? As an International Corporation will continue to promote a transparent, practical, and circular economy model. We will also continue to promote our recycling scheme and achieve the objectives we set ourselves in our Environmental Strategy.
“It was truly a great pleasure for us to have received this award from Tecniplast Corporate.” Andy Humes, Managing Director, Tecniplast UK, commented. “The Recycling Project represents two core values of our company: sustainability and innovation. In the last few years, Tecniplast UK has worked extremely hard and we will continue to do so in view of the climate crisis,” Andy concluded. “Our circular business model involves customers as product users, but also as promoters of good practices such as this recycling scheme and we appreciate their efforts”.
Martin Scheer, the Chairman of the Advisory Board of Tecniplast Germany, states that the building of Tecniplast Germany is another example of our commitment in terms of environmental protection.
The heating system uses no fossile combustibles at all, but wood chips coming from the regional forests around the company.
