Our Sustainability Goals
At Petainer, our unwavering commitment to sustainability drives us to set and achieve ambitious goals, aimed at mitigating our environmental impact. With a focus on both short-term and long-term objectives, we're dedicated to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, curbing water usage, achieving zero waste to landfill, and ultimately, attaining carbon neutrality. Our dedication to these goals fuels an ongoing journey of improvement in our sustainable practices.
Further underlining our commitment, our Lidköping Petainer site proudly boasts a Platinum EcoVadis Medal. This prestigious accolade places us within the top 1% of all EcoVadis-assessed companies, reflecting our steadfast adherence to sustainability principles. The rigorous assessment evaluates 21 sustainability criteria, categorised under four themes: Environment, Labour & Human Rights, Ethics, and Sustainable Procurement. Achieving the Platinum medal in 2022 is a testament to our ongoing commitment, mirroring the achievements of the preceding year.
Petainer are pleased to release our ESG report for 2022. In it, we can share the important changes we are making as a company that flow through on to the market. As a company, we continue to challenge ourselves to maintain transparency in our manufacture, knowing that this information is essential for our customers to put together their own credible carbon reduction strategies
At Petainer, our commitment to sustainable practices extends beyond environmental impact—it encompasses the communities we serve. Our conscientious efforts in waste reduction and resource conservation bear testament to our dedication. By curbing our ecological footprint, we're making strides towards a greener future.
Furthering our commitment, we actively engage with local communities. Collaborating with local organisations, we champion recycling initiatives and foster environmental education. This two-fold approach exemplifies our determination to both reduce our impact on the environment and uplift the regions where we operate.
Deepening our commitment, two of our core manufacturing sites operate on renewable energy sources. This conscious choice significantly curtails carbon emissions stemming from our operations. Additionally, our dedication to transparency is manifest in our provision of Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs). These independently verified and registered documents communicate comprehensive, comparable insights into the life cycle environmental impact of our products, aligning with ISO 14025 standards.

Innovation and Sustainability
At Petainer, innovation serves as the cornerstone of our sustainability strategy. We continually explore fresh materials and advanced technologies to drive waste reduction and resource conservation. Our commitment to innovation extends to supporting our clients in achieving their own sustainability goals, encompassing carbon footprint reduction and waste minimization.
A testament to our sustainable journey, Petainer has been incorporating up to 50% recycled PET into our packaging solutions since 2003. This dedication has evolved to encompass products with 100% rPET content, yielding remarkable results. By infusing rPET into our one-way and refillable small containers, we've facilitated a notable 20% reduction in our customers' carbon footprint in 2020 – an achievement that translates to a significant 24,000 tonnes of CO2 saved. This impressive feat is backed by our unique expertise in processing contaminant-free, food-grade rPET flakes, enabling us to deliver world-class sustainable preform solutions.
For a prime example of our innovation in action, explore our collaboration with Coca-Cola Europacific Partners (CCEP) in developing the revolutionary 'Universal refPET Bottle.' Discover how this groundbreaking initiative showcases our dedication to sustainable packaging solutions.
