Goodpack is committed to the safe and secure transportation of raw materials and products essential to today’s commerce and economic development. We invest in ensuring our communities, our environment and our people are protected, in a safe, secure and sustainable way. We provide sustainable solutions and accountability to mitigate the impact of climate change.
This challenge will become even more critical as the world’s population grows and global economic expansion drives the demand for products across the world. To address the resulting impact on the environment, we at Goodpack commissioned a Lifecycle Assessment (LCA) to understand and measure the carbon footprint of our reusable intermediate bulk containers.
This report highlights the key dimensions of our solutions from the perspective of environmental, carbon footprint and sustainability performance measurements. It reveals that our reusable, pay-per-use container solutions have demonstrably superior results in comparison to competing solutions.
Sustainability - decarbonizing your supply chain
Sustainability is becoming important for every business throughout each stage of their supply chain. We at Goodpack not only understand this imperative but have placed sustainability at the heart of everything we do.
The shipping industry is responsible for several million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions annually, while packaging is also a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions.
For some products, the packaging has a greater impact on climate change than the fuel used to ship it to market or the product itself. This is because traditional packaging materials like wooden or plastic pallets, cardboard or wooden crates and metal drums are mostly one-way and single use, discarded after only one journey.
Moreover, they offer only limited payload protection during the shipment, which may result in additional wastage through unnecessary product replacement.
Environmental measures and reducing an organization’s carbon footprint (OCF) are now mandated by many regulatory authorities across the world where enterprise Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) reporting determines investment decisions and operations. At the same time, growing public awareness means corporate reputations are on the line, pushing manufacturers and raw material suppliers to measure and mitigate the environmental impact of every step in their processes, including packaging and shipping.
At Goodpack, we not only understand this imperative but are committed to working hand-in-hand with our customers in their sustainability journey from raw materials to processing through to assembly and delivery of finished products.
