Environmentally aware and socially involved. Wolters Europe is investing in reducing its ecological footprint. We invest in the realization of innovative products, where quality and sustainable aspects come together. In this way we can provide you with high-quality products and we reduce our impact on the environment.
Wolters has this environmental certification and works in accordance with the directive. ISO 14001 describes the core elements for setting-up, implementing, maintaining and improving an environmental management system: formulating environmental policy, establishing environmental aspects and effects, drawing up environmental objectives and programs and implementing an environmental management system focused on the continuous improvement of environmental performance.
Like every modern company, we take energy-saving measures on a daily basis. Think of LED lighting and reusing heat from our production process. Our fleet of vehicles is also becoming greener. We reduce our transport movements through the use of LHV trucks.
In addition, some major projects are planned for the coming years.
The aim of these sustainable measures is to prepare our company for a sustainable future!
Wolters Europe uses EPS and EPP in the manufacture of its products. Production outages in our companies are processed in our recycling department as much as possible and be added to new products to be manufactured. This applies to the locations in the Netherlands and the Czech Republic. Projects with pilot customers are currently underway to investigate whether used products can be taken back from our customers and to add this to new products to be manufactured.
Packaging materials are almost completely reused within our company and the supply chain. This concerns specific reusable customer packaging up to and including cardboard packaging materials.
Wolters Europe already offers the market products made of 100% compostable bio plastics. With this application, our customers have a 100% recyclable alternative to traditional EPS.
Together with raw material suppliers and customers, Wolters Europe has entered into partnerships to stimulate and accelerate the re-use of EPS and EPP. There are many initiatives, we believe that through collaboration in the supply-chain, innovations grow the fastest.
Initiatives with regard to the re-use of plastic and EPS are also taking place in the Twente region. Wolters takes its responsibility in this and supports these initiatives, including purEPS.
Wolters Europe takes its responsibility with regard to sustainability. However, we believe that there is a lot of misunderstanding about plastics and that plastic is often criticized on social media..
It is important to emphasize that current products made of EPS and EPP consist of 98% air, so the required raw materials are already being used very efficiently. In addition, our current EPS and EPP products can already be recycled very well: AIRpop promo recycling
