Hungary based facility has been awarded ISCC PLUS certification for sustainable practices
Packaging specialist Hoffmann Neopac has successfully completed an audit conducted by International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC) at its tube manufacturing facility in Debrecen, Hungary.
ISCC is a certification system denoting sustainable, deforestation-free and traceable supply chain practices concerning a variety of raw materials, including non-bio renewables and recycled carbon materials.
Neopac was awarded ISCC PLUS certification: recognition, in part, for its separate handling of recycled polyethylene (rPE), which it says is a key component in its plastic tube solutions.
“Neopac is continuously striving to reach its full sustainability potential, including the materials we employ, the energy we use and, of course, the packaging solutions we provide,” said Krisztián Bíró, Head of Quality Management for Neopac.
“For us, the most significant aspect of the ISCC PLUS designation is the proof of traceability it provides – a reassurance to our customers that the materials for their tube solutions are responsibly and sustainably sourced.”
According to Neopac, ISCC will perform recertification annually, while its internal audit team will ensure the traceability of ISCC-registered materials on an ongoing basis.
