Sustainability report

Sustainability report

With the UN’s 17 Global Goals for sustainable development from Agenda 2030 and Sweden’s 16 environmental quality objectives as a starting point, the sustainability report gives an account of how Mälarplast is working actively on improvements throughout the entire organisation to reduce negative effects on the environment that could be caused by our business.
The annual sustainability report was produced by the company’s environmental manager Tommy Eriksson in March 2021 for reporting to the management review in May and to the supervisory authority. Mälarplast’s operations have been subject to a permit requirement (environmentally hazardous operations, B-class, since 2017), while operations in sister company August Lundh AB are so small that no environmental permits are required.

Globala mål för en hållbar utveckling - Agenda 2030

Tommy Eriksson,Sustainability, Quality and Environment Manager:
We are constantly developing and improving the way we work, in both terms of our own direct environmental impact and in our indirect impact on the environment via our suppliers and other parties in society. We want to see materials and technologies develop in a way that is beneficial for the future and creates a good world in the long term.

Tommy Eriksson, Controller, Kvalitet och Miljö - Mälarplast AB"If we look back we can see that the proportion of bioplastic or bio-based plastics used in our production has increased significantly, which is gratifying and in line with our goals."
