Lightweight Containers

Sustainability

We believe that there will only be room for sustainable companies

Lightweight Containers is a family business. We believe in a sustainable future in which packaging does not have an impact on the environment. We strive for closed recycling with very little or no impact at all on nature. We continuously design, develop and produce with this single aim in mind. Consequently, the KeyKeg is already a revolutionary form of packaging that spares the environment.

Our vision

We want to leave the world in a better state than we found it. We believe there is only a future for companies that manufacture without having a negative impact on nature and the environment. Therefore only circular processes that have zero environmental impact have a place in the future. We work hard every day to reduce our CO₂ footprint and Environmental Impact (EI) value to zero: which is somewhat of a complex challenge.

This isn’t something that we are able to do alone. We can only succeed with the help of the value chain as a whole – from the raw material manufacturer, the supplier of the semi-finished products, the machine builders, the energy manufacturers to the shipping agents, waste collectors and recycling com-panies.

Our plan

Our plan

We work with a sustainability plan that looks ahead five years into the future, and measure the results in terms of CO₂ footprint and ECI value (Environmental Cost Indicator-value). The ECI value in particular is gaining in social importance because this seems to be the only option for comparing products objectively in terms of environmental impact.

Collection and recycling

A circular KeyKeg reduces the CO₂ and EI values by around 25%, so in the environmental plan, a great deal of attention has been paid to collecting and recycling our plastic kegs. We have succeeded in working with partners to develop technologies that can be used to turn the used KeyKegs into new KeyKegs. The challenge now is to collect as many KeyKegs and UniKegs as possible and reduce CO₂ emissions and costs at the same time.

Smart collaboration

Smart collaboration

We only achieve our environmental objectives by means of smart collaboration in our chain. We began this collaboration and are making it visible and measurable by using the best environmental software. As a result, our value chain isn’t just becoming greener, but also more competitive. Through this collaboration, our chains are producing greener, cheaper, and have a better control of, raw material flows.
