Sustainable. For Life.

Climate change is the challenge of our generation and sustainability is rightly at the top of the global agenda, generating significant green investment, development of green technology and political initiatives to contribute towards a sustainable transition to Net Zero.

Packaging that promotes and protects its contents, reduces waste and enables efficient recycling, allows brand owners to make a greater contribution towards their sustainability goals. The company that manufactures the packaging has an important role to play within this - that's why we aim for every stage of our processes to be Sustainable For Life.

McLaren Packaging’s Sustainability Commitment

We all have a responsibility to protect and positively contribute to the environmental and economic health of our planet, starting at home and within our own business operations.

As producers of premium products within the drinks sector, we understand that you have to communicate and evidence your commitment to sustainability to your consumers, just as we need to do with our customers.

So, we are here to work together, to innovate and deliver a Sustainable For Life approach in developing our packaging, which represents your brand.

We are working hard to reduce our energy consumption and our carbon footprint.

Did you know?

Producing 1 tonne of paper from recycled material rather than virgin fibre saves 4.4 tonnes of trees and 58% GHG emissions.
Paper and board are circular packaging materials with recycling rates of 80% in the UK.
Although paper products can be recycled the world would run out within 6-18 months without virgin fibre. FSC certified virgin fibre is an important part of the recycling mix.
Corrugate paper packaging fibres can be reused up to 25 times.
