Sustainability at Tekni-Plex

Sustainability Highlights from 2020

Sustainability has always been part of what we do at Tekni-Plex and goes hand-in-hand with our Core Values. Filtered through the lens of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, our 2020 Sustainability Report looks to the past and all we have done by just being who we are as a company.

Erembodegem, Belgium

Working in partnership with UNITAR over the past three years, our facility in Erembodegem, Belgium, has become an example of what is possible for all of Tekni-Plex.

One of the goals of UNITAR is to accelerate implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). UNITAR offers resources and services that enable countries and organizations to align their strategies and policies with the SDGs, as well as to build the knowledge and skills of their staff to design and implement evidence-based decisions, maximizing positive impacts across all goals and pillars of the UN 2030 Agenda.​

Through clear focus and hard work, the Erembodegem manufacturing facility has demonstrated sufficient evidence in all 17 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to achieve certification in 2021.
