Tex Plastics 3 Pillars of Eco Efficiency
A focus to reduce overall waste across Tex Plastics making our operations as efficient as possible – using fewer resources and generating less waste. Our ambitious eco-efficiency pillars focus in three areas.
Why Tex Plastics is committed to reducing our environmental footprint
The public awareness of the impact of ‘industry and plastic’ on the environment is creating a groundswell of brands who are sensitive about their products manufacturing integrity. How the products are made, the materials used and their green credibility are all now in the consumers purchasing framework. This is why we have developed a framework to help our customers design a more environmentally friendly product. But it starts by getting our house in order, which is why we have launched the Tex Plastics 3 Pillars of Eco-Efficiency.
Becoming carbon positive in manufacturing plastic components
As our business grows, we aim to reduce the environmental footprint of all aspects of our operations. The 3 Pillars of Eco Efficiency sets out our processes and methodologies for reducing greenhouse gas, water and waste. Plus clearly sets out our ambition to play a leadership role in the transition to a zero-carbon economy.
Sustainability, combining ecological and economic efficiency
Eco-efficiency is not just about reducing our environmental footprint – it also makes good business sense. Eco-efficiency has been proposed as one of the main tools to promote a transformation from unsustainable development to one of sustainable development. It is based on the concept of creating more goods and services while using fewer resources and creating less waste and pollution. The term was coined by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) in its 1992 publication “Changing Course,” and at the 1992 Earth Summit, eco-efficiency was endorsed as a new business concept and means for companies to implement Agenda 21 in the private sector.
