Since January 1, 2017, Koen Pack has become a member of the BSCI program. BSCI is an initiative of the Foreign Trade Association (FTA) and stands for Business Social Compliance Initiative. The initiative was established to improve working conditions among others in the supply chain worldwide. We think equal and good working conditions for everyone are important in our supply chain. In consultation with our producers in e.g. Kenya, China, Vietnam and Myanmar, we ensure that the working condition requirements are met. Koen Pack has been following the Sedex program for several years, in this program good working conditions are also ensured. Sedex is a nonprofit organization, working to improve corporate ethics and responsibility. BSCI participants and vendors attend training on different themes as described in the 11 principles.

Koen Pack is a firm believer in lowering the carbon footprint of all our products, and with that, the impact on the environment. All our plastics are fully recyclable, and we are able to produce degradable plastics that are currently available in the market.
We strongly prefer recycling however, since it’s always better to prevent plastic from ending up in the landfills, key is to educate consumers to actually recycle all plastics. That’s why we show the recycle logo on our products wherever possible. We use water based inks where possible. Would you like more information about this?
