Sustainability is a key element of RKW's corporate policy as well as one of the most important subjects in the plastic packaging industry. Consequently, RKW belongs to many different associations and organizations concerned with sustainability. As a new member of Ceflex, a European consortium of companies promoting the recyclability of flexible packaging and the increased use of recycled plastic, RKW will become active in enhancing the sustainability of packaging and developing new industry standards. Sustainability is one of the most important subjects in the plastic industry, especially in the area of packaging. A representative study shows that sustainability in packaging is important to one in two consumers. This not only applies to the material used to make the packaging, but also to its entire life cycle.

As a new member of Ceflex, a European consortium of companies promoting the recyclability of flexible packaging and the increased use of recycled plastic, RKW will become active in enhancing the sustainability of packaging solutions and developing new industry standards.
