Company goals

PAPACKS® has set itself the goal of producing pulp packaging made from sustainable, biodegradable and recyclable raw materials. To achieve this goal, we implement various measures:

We use closed separators in our production to minimize water consumption and achieve water savings. We are also reducing the amount of waste that goes to landfill to achieve CO₂ reduction.

By using controlled, high-quality raw materials, we guarantee a pure raw material origin without foreign substances and thus contribute to saving resources. We also promote biodiversity through the use of fibers from paludicultures and PAPACKS® Industrial Hemp.

Our materials are obtained from sustainable forest cultivation and are FSC®-certified, with a new planting for every tree felled. We also apply the highest quality requirements to our raw materials in order to guarantee high product quality.

Through further measures we would like to use our fiber cast packaging made of fibers from PAPACKS® Industrial Hemp and thus make a contribution to saving resources and reducing CO₂.

In addition, we operate our production facilities with renewable energy to further minimize our ecological footprint and ensure sustainable production. We are convinced that these measures will contribute to achieving our corporate goals in accordance with the requirements of a sustainable and resource-saving economy.

To date we have more than
0 kg

Disposable plastic replaced by molded pulp made from renewable raw materials.

Plastic-free thanks to natural fibers made from renewable raw materials — Made in Germany

In order to meet industrial requirements, we use modern production processes and solutions for the circular economy. It is time for a global change to make our actions as diverse as our nature does.

We have optimized our appearance for our values, integrity and our mission. For us, diversity also means being in harmony with the diversity of nature and using it sustainably.

Be colorful and diverse with your products and use natural packaging for a way back to nature. It is time to go beyond just the “green” and collectively create global change that can be implemented by all.

Circular design

Circular design is a guide to a regenerative and resilient future. With this approach, products, services and systems are designed and developed with a view to the big picture. The focus is on the needs of the users and at the same time the entire system in which we work is considered. Circular design enables us to tackle global challenges such as packaging reduction and packaging reuse at the root.

In addition to the ecological advantages, it is important to emphasize that circular design can also make economic sense. It helps to save resources and energy and reduce waste disposal costs. Circular design is an approach that should be considered as part of a broader sustainable strategy in product development and corporate governance.

We at PAPACKS design packaging products together with you according to the principles of circular design. In doing so, we take into account the entire service life of the product and the various material flows in order to ensure efficient and resource-saving production. By implementing circular design, we help to use resources better and reduce environmental impact.

We are convinced that circular design is an important step towards a regenerative and resilient future. That is why we are committed to consistently implementing this concept in our production of fiber cast molded parts.

Circular Economy — Reuse

We rely on the principles of the circular economy in the manufacture of molded fiber product, protective and transport packaging. By permanently returning the packaging used to our production, we can use the materials in the cycle and have a reduced CO₂ footprint.

The packaging is returned directly to our production, without energetic raw material processing. We rely on green electricity, which is also supported by solar power.

By implementing reuse strategies, we contribute to reducing the amount of waste and minimizing the consumption of resources. We are convinced that this measure will help shape a more sustainable and resource-efficient future.
