On 30 September, packaging manufacturer Paccor announced that it had become a member of Styrenics Circular Solutions (SCS), the value chain initiative that was established with as goal to increase the circularity of styrenic polymers.
Headquartered in Dusseldorf, Germany, Paccor is focussed on the development and production of rigid plastic packaging solutions for applications in industries ranging from dairy to personal care. The decision to join SCS is in line with the company’s CARE strategy, implemented to promote sustainable growth and developed in alignment with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These goals act as a lodestar for the company in its drive for circularity guide. “This drive will be strengthened by our collaboration as part of the SCS team as we work together on our shared circularity goals,” said Andreas Schuette, CEO of Paccor. Guided by the CARE strategy, the company is on course to meet its goal of recyclability in practice and at scale for all products by 2023, ahead of the EU timescale, he added.
Jens Kathmann, Secretary-General of SCS, gave Paccor a warm welcome noting that the company's CARE strategy to 'accelerate the transition to a circular economy has made a positive impression on their industry peers and we look forward to their input to our value chain’s shared mission'.
