Sustainability at the Carton Group
We see acting sustainably less as a trend and much more as a continuing responsibility. Therefore, our sustainability concept is and has been an integral part of our group – from the selection of environmentally friendly raw materials to the design of sustainable production processes.
We see sustainable action less as a trend and much more as a responsibility for us as a company. That is why we have made it our mission to integrate sustainable solutions into our production processes along the entire value chain. This includes a sustainability code for suppliers, FSC-certified cardboard, completely climate-neutral packaging with ClimatePartner certification on request and certification by the International Federation for the Economy for the Common Good e. V.. The fact that we deliver on our sustainability promise is also proven by the Ecovadis Gold Medal, which our subsidiary Leupold was awarded in 2023. Only the top 5% of companies in our industry receive this rating.
The award also underlines our leading sustainability position in the industry in the areas of environment sustainability, labour and human rights, sustainable procurement and ethics. Strobel’s recognition as the winner of the German Packaging Award in the “Sustainability” category is yet further proof.
As packaging experts we live our responsibility to continuously optimise our processes, production procedures and materials every single day with regard to sustainability. For this purpose, we use sustainable raw materials, for example, and use them as resource-efficiently as possible. Packaging made of fine cardboard, cardboard and corrugated cardboard is a sensible and sustainable alternative to plastic and other non-recyclable packaging materials. Our product development specialists proactively develop environmentally-friendly paper-based packaging to minimise packaging waste and to replace plastic-based solutions with sustainable packaging material. We are also working on developing other alternative materials, such as paper made from grass. With many years of expertise in sustainable production we will be happy to advise and work with you to find the perfect solution to your challenges.
