PAPSTAR demonstrates the responsibility it takes for man, nature and the environment not least by constantly monitoring and improving all processes in place at the company with regard to ecological, social and economic aspects. By doing so the company makes a clear statement about sustainability.
PAPSTAR product ranges comprise the key focus of the company's overall journey towards sustainability. On this path, both environmental and social aspects are taken into consideration as well as high quality requirements. When selecting products and during production, the company aligns itself with quality seals from independent bodies. Awards like the GREEN BRANDS quality label or inclusion in the select circle of the "Great German Brands of the Century" confirm the company's own aspiration and, together with a comprehensive corporate communication concept, enhance the brand profile.
By participating in "Der Grüne Punkt - Duales System Deutschland, Gesellschaft für Abfallvermeidung und Sekundärrohstoffgewinnung mbH", PAPSTAR GmbH successfully contributed in2020 to the savings in CO₂ emissions that the corresponding certificate makes traceable.
"The Green Dot" was founded intentionally by an association of companies - including PAPSTAR - operating in the food and packaging industry in Germany immediately before the Packaging Ordinance came into force in 1991. It was established as a second system of disposal parallel to the existing public waste disposal system, hence the name "Dual".
At PAPSTAR, the development and design of the product range is driven forward based on clearly defined principles. Environmental and social aspects are given consideration on a par with the requirements for high quality. Key product ranges are designed to come into contact with foodstuffs, so the company has a special responsibility to place multiple aspects of food hygiene and safety, and therefore the health of the end consumer, at the forefront of every product and product range decision.
