OneCircle is delighted to announce the appointment of Annemieke Hartman - Jemmett as a new board member of OneCircle. Annemieke is particularly well suited for the role due to her extensive diverse business experience and specifically her experience in the plastic packaging industry; growing the PET kegs segment with international and national brands.
During our search, we were looking for a person with an intuitive PET packaging world connection, deep commercial understanding, excellent communicator and networker, an appetite for innovation and the ability for delivering planned growth through creating sound partnerships. With her remorseless energy and ambition, Annemieke possesses all these elements and more which makes her the ideal candidate to bring OneCircle to life; an initiative of Lightweight Containers.
Due to the upcoming demand on environmental friendly products, Lightweight Containers identified the OneCircle initiative. OneCircle's goal is to collect used KeyKegs, other one-way kegs and other plastic litter in general and separate them in a way that the materials can be used for the same high-end applications.
For a period of just under 5 years, Annemieke has been the Group Commercial Director for Petainer. Annemieke has been involved in similar roles for the following companies: Philip Morris International, Norton Motorcycles, and Pitney Bowes Management Services to name but a few.
Annemieke said;' I am thrilled to be starting at OneCircle, a forward-thinking initiative focused on creating partnerships with accountable stakeholders in the supply chain. We look forward to deliver credible sustainable solutions working in close partnership with brand owners, suppliers and others. Securing the long-term future of consumer packaging needs, whilst being accountable to the world in which we live'.
The origin of OneCircle origin is in the global collection of plastic kegs with the aim to ultimately make one-way plastic kegs fully circular (cradle to cradle). The majority of collected materials are used circularly for the production of new plastic kegs. For some components, we are in the process of developing high-quality solutions. We also improve thermoplastics, which traditionally would be burned or are destined for landfill.
