In the year since it signed the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment, Albéa has reportedly tripled its responsible packaging offering.
According to the company, by signing the commitment, it pledged to make 100% of its packaging recyclable or reusable by 2025, as well as reducing plastic usage where relevant and including post-consumer recycled (PCR) resins where possible.
In addition, Albéa has joined the SPICE (Sustainable Packaging Initiative for Cosmetics) initiative, meant to bring together cosmetic industry professionals to collaborate on sustainable packaging; published its first Sustainable Development Report; announced a co-development with L’Oréal; been granted certification for its Greenleaf II laminate tube, by the APR (Association of Plastic Recyclers); and engaged our stakeholders in a conversation on circular beauty.
Gilles Swyngedauw, vice president CSR, Innovation & Marketing of Albéa, said, "Albéa’s commitment to sustainability goes back 15 years and is reflected in our broad range of responsible packaging solutions. The focus until recently was on eco-designing lighter packaging, with less plastic and more post-consumer recycled resins. Today we are accelerating the development of recyclable and reusable packaging that contributes to circularity. By partnering with our customers, suppliers and all our stakeholders, we demonstrate our commitment to building circular packaging for tomorrow."
