PRS Return System introduces the Green Label Award

10 jul., 2019 | publicado en 11:03 CET

For companies in the polymer industry, the pressure is on to reduce their carbon footprint and reduce waste. In recognition of all the parties in the polymer industry that actively contribute to a better environment by optimally using the PRS long standing truly circular model, PRS has created the PRS Green Label.

The PRS Green label is an award for the efforts of all the active partners in PRS’s sustainable network of environmentally responsible producers, converters, carriers, depots, traders and distributors. Each doing their part to make sure the pallet reuse system of PRS works and therefore actively contributing to a better environment.

To maximise the re-use of the PRS pallets, the active participation of all network partners is essential. For example polymer producers and plastics distributors,  who provide PRS with information about where they ship the pallets. Or plastics convertors, who separate the PRS pallets and return them after use. And many other partners who enable PRS to organise efficient re-use of the pallets throughout the industry.

PRS and their Green Label partners are working towards a circular world where single use of packaging materials has been ruled and the carbon footprint has been minimized.
