Corporate Social Responsibility

Our vision is to lead the way in sustainable packaging solutions that improve the quality of life by ensuring quality, safety and minimal environmental impact. When developing and producing film, AFP is therefore always looking for the perfect balance between "people, planet and profit". AFP's environmental management is all about corporate social responsibility. AFP focuses on reducing the CO2 footprint of AFP itself and its partners.

Our goals

Our goals

We strive not only to be the best with our products and solutions, but we also want to make a valuable contribution to the reduction of the CO2 footprint of our customers and ourselves. In order to acchieve this, we have developed ambitious corporate social responsibility goals. In doing so, we naturally comply with the applicable laws and regulations.

Recycle Solutions

Recycle Solutions

Stretch film based on recycled materials is becoming increasingly important for our customers. That is why the development of a High Performance stretch film based on recycled materials is one of our most important goals when it comes to sustainability. The first step in this direction is our Resinex 533, the environmental friendly stretch film that already contains 30% recycled material! Using this stretch film reduces your carbon footprint with 17%.

Biobased Solutions

Biobased Solutions

Biobased solutions are products made from renewable raw materials. One example of this is Katan-Ex Biobased, which is made with more than 60% renewable raw materials, from the residual flows of sugar production. Katan-Ex Biobased contributes to the sustainability of your organization with a 90% lower footprint compared to a conventional stretch film. In addition, the Katan-Ex Biobased stretch film fits perfectly in current recycling systems

Right gauging solutions

Right gauging solutions

Preventing damage to products that are transported on pallets makes an important contribution to sustainability. On average, 4% of all transported products on pallets are damaged.  Our goal is to reduce this damage. With our 7-step model we guarantee stable pallets at the lowest Total Cost of Ownership.

Case: Resinex 533 Recycle stretch film

AFP maintains a strong focus on sustainability. On a daily basis we work on making our processes more sustainable and we develop products with which we reduce the ecological footprint and with which we can help our customers achieve their sustainability targets.
We do this by developing films that create optimal pallet stability and as such significantly reduce damage. We also develop films with a high stretch capacity and/or that are thin, which means that significantly less film is required to wrap a pallet. Finally, we do this by developing sustainable products..

In 7 steps to less damage and waste

At AFP we work with the 7 step model we developed. We analyze and optimize your packaging process on the basis of 7 steps. The result: 20% less consumption in stretch film and 95% less damage. Would you also like to know what this can mean for you?

Case: Katan-Ex Biobased

FROM SUGAR CANE TO STRETCH FILM

Katan-Ex Biobased contributes to the sustainability of your organization with a 90% lower footprint compared to a conventional stretch film. In addition, the Katan-Ex Biobased stretch film fits perfectly in current recycling systems.

Katan-Ex Biobased is made with more than 60% renewable raw materials, made from the residual flows of sugar production. This durable stretch film ensures optimal safety and protection of your pallet loads with minimal film consumption. So double sustainable. This stretch film is suitable for a wide range of pallet loads.

Featured

Our new ALLPP film

AFP introduces a new food packaging material: ALPP, a film that improves the recyclability of laminates. This new material is a 100% CastPP and laminated with a BOPP it will be perfect for recyclability. The new material has a very low SIT (sealing initial temperature) and therefore the BOPP will not be damaged during sealing, because it can be sealed with a low temperature. Even the speed of the packaging line does not have to be lower

For the optimal solution

We not only want to be the best with our products and solutions for our customers, but we also want to make a valuable contribution to the reduction of the CO2 footprint of our customers and our own. We have developed ambitious targets for this. We of course comply with the applicable laws and regulations.

Sustainability with concrete approach

In our view, sustainability starts with a 'to do'. And that is what we do . Both internally as well as externally, we have a lot of projects in the field of sustainable development and our ambition is high.

Development you do with and for your customers

With knowledge of the market and a leading position in the field of new developments, we work together with and for our customers on solutions that make an essential and structural contribution to further limiting the CO2 footprint.
