At Distrupol, we recognise the importance of acting responsibly, safely and with integrity, in order to contribute to a sustainable future.
As such, we have developed a three-pronged approach to sustainable business and reducing our environmental impact. This comprehensive method ensures that we are able to act sustainably as a business, whilst also positively impacting the sustainability of our customers and their products. We take heed and direction from both government policies and industry initiatives and keep updated with sustainability project developments to guarantee we stand at the forefront of sustainable business.
In our industry, we all need polymer solutions that are sustainable and safe. This means reduced emissions, a reduced impact on the environment (including oceans), reduced polymer waste and improved recyclability and reusability. Making plastics part of a sustainable future is a collaborative effort. As leaders and experts in our industry, we recognise the responsibility we have to continue to drive sustainability efforts and work with suppliers, customers and other organisations to support the safe and responsible use of plastics in 2020 and beyond.
We work tirelessly to ensure our business processes are optimised and our best practices are as efficient and effective as possible, to reduce our impact on the environment and maximise our sustainability efforts. These include:

Operation Clean Sweep® is an international initiative to reduce plastic pellet loss to the environment, led by the British Plastics Federation in the UK. The initiative’s aim is to ensure that the plastic pellets, flakes and powders that go through manufacturing facilities are handled with care and do not end up in our oceans. Distrupol’s commitment to Operation Clean Sweep® means that we adhere to best practices and implement systems to reduce plastic pellet loss throughout our supply chain.
