CANPACK remains also active in regards to the sustainable development goals. Based on CAN PACK Group reports, all factories have environmental permits in accordance with the applicable national law. The impact upon the environment is monitored in accordance with local legal requirements and internal standards of the Group. Periodic and, in some cases, continuous measurement of emissions to air, water and sewage transportation are conducted. Consumption of utilities and production materials are monitored and analyzed, and the results are used to develop plans to reduce the impact on the environment. 

Pro-environmental activities in the individual factories are concentrated in the areas including:

  • reduction of energy and water consumption through the implementation of improvements and technological innovations
  • reduction of emissions and noise to the environment
  • reduction of amount and segregation of production waste

These activities are associated with a number of expenditures, investments and training of production personnel.
