Sustainability policy


PALpack recognises that it has a responsibility to the environment beyond legal and regulatory requirements.

We are committed to reducing our environmental impact and continually improving our environmental performance as an integral part of our business strategy and operating methods, with regular review points.


Our Director, David Wood, is responsible for ensuring that the environmental policy is implemented. We take steps both internally and externally to show our commitment to reducing our environmental impact. Below is a summary of our actions:
