Publication of the First OnePlastics Sustainability Report

By | Media, News | No Comments

A milestone for OnePlastics as we release our very first Sustainability Report for the year 2013.

Our commitment to constantly monitor, assess and invest across all areas of the business is bolstered by our latest report on the sustainability of the OnePlastics Group. The report itself closely examines areas of the OnePlastics group across the globe, detailing the level of activity that is currently ongoing in the area of sustainability. Continual investment in our people and manufacturing facilities since 2010 means that we remain at the cutting-edge of injection moulding technology, manufacturing and developing new techniques which enable us to provide better products, better services and better places to work.

We’re confident this report will have a long lasting impact on the already existing good practices across the group, and also result in increased sharing of learning across the OnePlastics group globally.
