Implement climate protection, not just talk about it!

Since the beginning of 2013, swissplast has also been implementing its activities on an ecological basis. With certification no. 1336101, swissplast has been confirmed as a climate-neutral company by Axpo and audited by SGS. The CO2 emissions calculated in the certification process are offset by a climate protection project.

In order to make an active contribution to climate protection, swissplast has been certified as climate-neutral and thus shows that ecology and economy can be combined. swissplast is presumably even the first thermoforming company in the industry that is demonstrably climate-neutral.

Which climate project is supported?

There is a whole range of projects. Out of personal solidarity, swissplast decided on a project in India. In a rural region in India, nine wind turbines generate around 25,000 megawatt hours of environmentally friendly electricity. They replace the conventional power plants in this region, which are avoided with quantities of greenhouse gases and pollutants.

Plastics – too bad to throw away

At some point, every thermoformed product comes to the end of its life cycle. Then it is ready for disposal. Plastics offer three completely different possibilities.

  • Recycling by mechanical preparation
  • Recycling by splitting of the plastics
  • Recycling by burning of the plastics

Our enterprise processes approximately all plastic wastes to a high-quality regenerate by means of material recycling. The waste is pre-sorted, shredded, mechanically edited. This regenerated material is reused in our own products to close the cycle. You can also read our report on plastics recycling.

Our industry takes responsibility. The Swiss Plastics Association provides additional information at: We bear responsibility.
