It’s impossible to imagine modern life today without plastics. No other material can match it in terms of weight, shock resistance and hygiene. However, the other side of this is that plastic is almost indestructible and thus scarcely biodegrades at all.
At Miko Pac we realise that it is our duty to keep our ecological footprint as small as possible. We are therefore constantly monitoring the latest developments in the field of environmentally friendly plastics and production methods. Any surplus material from our production process is recycled into new raw material, which means we produce almost no waste.
The heat generated by the air compressors is used to heat our production facilities, warehouse and offices during the winter months. This saves more than 20,000 litres of fuel a year.
Just like at our sister company, Miko Coffee, environmental sustainability is very important to us. In addition to the development of lightweight packaging and the continuous search for sustainable raw materials, the reduction of energy consumption in our facilities is a high priority. The recently installed solar panels on the new warehouse will certainly contribute to that. The total surface area will produce 425 MWh per year, which represents the annual consumption of 100 families.
