Polyart Receives Ecovadis Gold, Silver Medals

Polyart Group has announced that its UK facility Arjobex Polyart Limited in Clacton on Sea has received a gold medal for its Corporate Social Responsibility performance from Ecovadis, one of the major rating organizations for sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

This result reportedly ranks Arjobex Polyart Ltd among the top 5 percent of companies globally and in the top 2 percent of companies within the plastic manufacturing sector audited by Ecovadis.

Other facilities of the group achieved silver medal, including Arjobex America Inc in Charlotte, North Carolina; Arjobex Rives in France; MDV Karlstein in Germany; and TechFolien in Liverpool, England.

The Ecovadis medals reward the way in which the Group implements actions and policies in line with its ambitions in terms of sustainable development.

Polyart Group has integrated ongoing sustainable development into its 5-year business plan, with the entire Group contributing to its environmental and social governance (ESG) commitments.

In 2021, Polyart group named Mark Grimley as Corporate CSR Manager, under the direct supervision of Stephane DAVEAU, CEO of the group. The same year also saw the launch of r-Polyart, reportedly the first synthetic paper with 30 percent post-consumer recycled polyethylene.

In 2022, Polyart had its coated and uncoated grades of Polyart tested under the Association of Plastic recyclers HDPE CG01 protocol; both grades were found compliant, proving that an HDPE rigid container with a Polyart label can be considered as mono-component packaging, and be recycled easily.

The next steps in the group sustainability roadmap in 2023 will be verifiable commitments to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the group will also start a Recyclass evaluation of its European grades of films for labels.

The group has also announced that by 2027 it will reduce by 20 percent the scope 1 and scope 2 carbon emissions of its Polyart synthetic paper range produced in Europe.
