Uzin are now pleased to announce that since March 2020 all of their plastic canisters are made from 100% recycled plastic. These new canisters can in turn also be recycled. Based on this change the Uzin Utz Group now saves approx. 80 tons of CO2 per year as the new canisters have a 50% lower CO2 footprint. The new packaging makes a significant contribution to environmental protection and helps contribute to the group’s sustainability strategy.
Sustainability is at the centre of the Uzin Utz Group’s corporate philosophy and the majority of their product developments have been based on making our products more environmentally friendly. Part of this strategy is to challenge the status quo and question the methods they use, especially in the manufacturing process.
In the past few years Uzin started to change their plastic canisters by reducing the amount of virgin plastic and increasing the percentage of recycled plastic content known as PCR (post-consumer recycled).
Packaging is just one area the Uzin Utz Group is looking to improve and continually invest into sustainable solutions. Their products are responsibly sourced and manufactured to meet ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. Most of Uzin’s products have been awarded EMICODE EC1 Plus® certification to ensure their products are solvent-free, very low emission and guarantee excellent indoor air quality.
Uzin will continue to adopt the best environment practices and aim to work in such a way that everything they create is sustainable.
