An innovative partnership between global automakers and their suppliers
The Suppliers Partnership for the Environment (SP), with their headquarters located in Washington DC, USA, provides a forum for members to work together toward a shared vision of an automotive industry with positive environmental impact. This is done by advancing leading practices and projects in defined focus areas, which comprise Sustainable Operations, Sustainable Materials and Sustainable Suppliers. The condensed mission of the SP is to bring together companies in the automotive value chain, in partnership with the US Environmental Protection Agency, and advance projects with positive environmental, economic and community impact.
Goodpack, an established global supplier of packaging services to the automotive industry, readily acknowledges the long-term benefits of working for the environment. Julian Schultis, Goodpack Global Segment Director for Automotive Components, comments: “In general, besides delivering core values such as resilience and cost-efficiency, Goodpack services add to the sustainability of a supply chain. This is simply because all Goodpack containers are reusable, repairable and recyclable. A Goodpack container can, in normal use, last for more than 30 years. This is also why we feel we have a lot to give the SP, in terms of sustainable alternatives and efficient means to decarbonize supply chains. We are really looking forward to working with the SP and its members.”
In addition to the automotive industry, Goodpack serves multiple markets worldwide, including natural and synthetic rubber (raw material bales), food and beverage (bulk ingredients), finished tires and chemicals. Working with very different markets necessitates understanding and answering the very specific needs of these markets. In practice, this translates into developing dedicated service models and market-specific containers. The Goodpack MB12M container, e.g., complete with two-part lid as well as removable and foldable sidewalls, was developed specifically for the automotive industry.
