If you are responsible for sourcing packaging for your business or organisation, you will be acutely aware of the importance of working with a sustainable packaging company.
A sustainable packaging company allows you to minimise the environmental impact of your packaging. Genuine sustainability also considers which packaging is suited to specific applications, including recycled, recyclable and reusable options. A sustainable packaging company should also demonstrate intelligent, environmentally focused packaging design and support your business’s sustainability goals.
GWP Group is a sustainable packaging company, evidenced by the availability of a huge range of genuinely sustainable packaging. GWP is also continually striving to reduce the environmental impact of the wider business.
But this is just the start. GWP understands that true sustainability is a journey. There are always opportunities to improve. And that a collective approach with customers, staff, and all businesses across the value chain, is the best way to achieve lasting results.
Sustainability at GWP Group
Transparency, communication, and accountability are critical when considering sustainability.

Your sustainability partner
It is vital to take a holistic view of the environmental impacts of your packaging.
Considering what the packaging solution does is far more important and significant than the packaging material. Packaging plays a vital role in protecting products and getting them to their desired destination. As the environmental impact of making those products is highly likely to be significantly greater than the packaging itself it is really important that while making improvements, any packaging can still perform on a consistent basis.
This approach makes it possible to make informed choices around the most sustainable packaging option in the context of your application, business needs, consumer demands and the environment.
GWP understands the importance of sustainability to your business, customers, and wider supply chain. That is why you can benefit from a range of strategies to reduce the environmental impact of your packaging.
A team of experienced packaging designers, utilising a framework focused on efficiency and being “simply clever”, ensures any packaging you source from GWP is inherently sustainable.
Uniquely, GWP allows you to source recyclable, reusable, returnable, biodegradable and plastic-free packaging. This holistic approach incorporates the principles of the circular economy and integrates seamlessly into your sustainability efforts.
