In July 2020, Keenpac were awarded a Silver Medal by EcoVadis, a globally recognised sustainability scorecard Awardees are independently assessed against a comprehensive framework of sustainability and corporate social criteria.

Globally, this award places Keenpac amongst the top 25% of the approximately 50,000 companies assessed by EcoVadis.

This award reaffirms our sustainability values and commitment towards driving continuous improvement.

We are committed to supporting our customers in managing and reducing their environmental impact.

To this end, we have created a Bunzl Footprint tool to enable us to assess the environmental performance of the products we supply.

Crucially, this includes key information on their material composition as well as recyclability and recycled content.

Additionally, we have established a risk categorisation to classify products according to their exposure to forthcoming legislation and restrictions.

Designed to share information with our teams and customers to drive innovation and provide solutions for our customers.

Why FSC?

Managed Forestry

Worldwide demand for paper and board

  • The number of times a paper can be recycled is limited
  • Wood is constantly needed as a source for the production of packaging

Managed forestry ensures an economically viable and constant flow of timber for the industry

  • At the same time it maintains bio-diversity & secures the rights of forest communities & indigenous peoples
  • The FSC logo is clearly recognisable

The logo confirms no illegal logging or environmentally destructive sources
