OPTIPACK is FSC® (FSC C106987) and ISCC PLUS certified

Careful use of resources and social responsibility have always been of great importance to OPTIPACK. By selling FSC® and ISCC- certified products, we are consistently pursuing our sustainability strategy. With both certification schemes, the material used remains identifiable at all times from its creation to the end customer. This ensures that products bearing an FSC label were actually made from corresponding raw materials. For the ISCC PLUS certified material, an equivalent amount of recycled raw materials was used.


Material savings

Our know-how for your products

Continuous improvement processes ensure the optimisation and further development of our products and manufacturing processes. State-of-the-art analysis methods, simulation models of parameter changes and their effect on product quality and manufacturing processes reveal, for example, potential savings in cup weight or optimisation of pallet utilisation. The use of Desto Cup can also achieve plastic savings of up to 40% in certain cases.


We think about the ecological footprint

Maximum efficiency and future viability are an integral part of our value chain. In addition to customer requirements, we focus on the life cycle of our products – from granulate to recycling. We think in cycles. We supply process-related plastic waste to new recycling areas and, where possible, we replace primary material with recyclates.

Energy management

Resource-saving and efficient use of energy

Optipack GmbH operates an energy management system to continuously improve its energy-related performance. Since 2012, the two sites Leppersdorf and Aretsried have been certified according to the international standard for energy management systems - ISO 50001: 2018.
