EPR for Packaging

At Plast1, we believe in taking responsibility for the waste generated by our products, adhering to the EU's polluter pays principle. As part of our dedication to sustainability, we have embraced the concept of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) for packaging, aligning with Denmark’s and EU’s regulatory framework.

Through thorough research and proactive measures, we have initiated the process of EPR compliance, demonstrating our commitment to sustainable practices. Crucially, we have partnered with a Producer Responsibility Organization (PRO) to efficiently manage our packaging waste, handling the legal, financial, and practical responsibility for collecting, sorting, and recycling our packaging.

By working with a PRO, we are able to efficiently handle our packaging waste while ensuring full compliance with local regulations and international standards. This proactive stance not only helps us meet legal requirements but also underscores our dedication to environmental preservation on a global scale. At Plast1, our commitment to EPR reflects our proactive approach to responsible packaging and our commitment to a sustainable future.


As regulations evolve to address environmental concerns, we at Plast1 actively engage in sustainability reporting to meet the requirements of the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD).

By 2025, large companies that already adhere to the Non-Financial Reporting Directive (NFRD) must disclose sustainability-related information for the 2024 financial year. This requirement extends to all other large companies under the CSRD, including our own, by 2026, covering the 2025 financial year.

We understand that supply chains play a significant role in environmental impact for many large companies. As a responsible supplier, we are proactively working to increase transparency regarding our environmental impact. Although CSRD reporting is not mandatory for us yet, we have started the process. Our efforts include establishing strong data systems for gathering and analyzing sustainability metrics.

Our goal is to easily share this important sustainability data with our customers, helping them meet their CSRD reporting requirements effectively. We are committed to assisting our customers in achieving their sustainability objectives by providing necessary information and support.


Some of Plast1’s manufacturers use solar panels, up to 10% of the energy used in our factories. The remaining 90% of energy used is primarily generated from water & wind sources.

At Plast1 we constantly strive to minimize our manufacturing footprint through six initiatives:

1. Solar energy

Solar panels on the rooves of our factories generate 10% of the energy used in the manufacturing process

2. Green energy

Parts of the electricity is CO2 free, generated from water and wind

3. Heat recovery system

Our factories have reduced their energy consumption due to new heat recovery systems, which uses heat generated from the machines, to heat production halls

4. LED lighting system

LED lighting in all main production halls has further reduced the energy consumption

5. Waste management

Waste paper is pressed at factories, in order to reduce the volume of transported waste

6. Production plastic waste

All waste products from the production are re-granulated and reused


In 2021 more than 30% of our products are manufactured from recycled plastics material, and we continuously aim for increasing this proportion.

To increase our recycled produced number of products, we absorb more and more re-generated material. By planning in advance, we do our outmost to secure as much re-generated raw material possible. Presently we are also working close together with suppliers of re-generated material when it comes to “food safe” approved re-generated material.


Plast1 always work on a high technical level when it comes to development of new products and evaluation of best possible raw material to be used, product by product.

We make stress-test on all product development, in order to identify and secure minimum usage of raw material, whether it’s virgin or re-generated material at stake.

The product development team at Plast1 design and manufactures new products every year. For every new product, the consideration of product functionality goes hand-in-hand with an overall aim of reducing the plastic consumption per unit. Our team works with sophisticated stress-test software and 3D printing in the development process, and we take an honor in launching functional products with a reduced C02 footprint.


Local production and optimized logistics ensure lowest possible CO2 emissions.

95% of Plast1 products are manufactured in Europe. We constantly optimize our logistic solutions offering direct deliveries to our customers’ distribution centers and by this we avoid extra transport in relation to storing the products.

By avoiding unnecessary transport handling and transshipments, we reduce our overall carbon footprint. Compared with a product sourced overseas, we save approx. 11% of C02 emissions every year.


We constantly focus on reducing food waste, and we encourage the correct disposal of our articles at end-of-life cycle into recycling schemes.

Food waste is a global issue.

Through special directed campaigns with food storage boxes, Plast1 together with our customers encourage end-consumers to reduce usage of plastic bags, and to store leftovers in order to reduce household food waste. With in-store campaigns and product marking we help raise awareness about this issue.

Plastic is a fantastic recyclable material when disposed correctly.

All our products have labels with material specification, enabling consumers to dispose the product correctly. All raw materials are specified in the bottom of the product, according to legislation, guiding end-consumers to sort correctly as ‘Post-Consumer Waste’.
