Use of Natural Resources - Environmental News
As a converter of soft tissue products most of our products are currently made using wood pulp. In relation to this we strive to ensure that we only purchase tissue from producers who have a stringent environmental policy and are able to demonstrate that they are managing the woodlands as a sustainable resource.
Additionally, we require either FSC or equivalent accreditation or a plan evidencing efforts to attain such accreditations. In an effort to further reduce the impact of our activities on the environment, initiatives are in place to increase our use of recycled tissue in the manufacture of our products.
This has already commenced with the use of tissue manufactured from 100% recycled fibre, a majority of which is sourced from post consumer waste supply streams via local authorities, kerb side collections and bona fide waste management organisations.
Use of Energy
The use of energy efficiently is seen as an important factor of our manufacturing processes. Specific control measures are in place to ensure efficient use of energy thereby limiting the impact on the environment.
Use of Packaging
A reduction in the use of packaging is a major factor in the development of all products at Alispac whilst all existing product packaging is constantly monitored to reduce or eliminate it altogether wherever practicable.
In addition, efforts are being made to covert some plastic packaging to compostable materials.
