Reduced carbon footprint with the new transport boxes

DeLaval has been running a packaging project in Glinde to reduce the environmental impact of transport boxes. Since August 2011 we have been able to display the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) mark globally on all our transport boxes, indicating that the raw materials used are from responsibly-harvested and sustainable sources. 

DeLaval has been running a packaging project in Glinde to reduce the environmental impact of transport boxes. Since August 2011 we have been able to display the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) mark globally on all our transport boxes, indicating that the raw materials used are from responsibly-harvested and sustainable sources. 

All DeLaval boxes are produced using at least 70% recycled material or raw material from renewable sources and well-managed forests.

Reduction of CO²
“The outcome of this project so far is that we have saved around 14 ton of CO²-eq in 2011 compared to 2010 at the supplier site by using less material to produce the boxes. This is 3 % of a total volume of 463 tons CO². This also means that price increases of raw material could be absorbed,” says Anja Pfeiffer, Quality Manager.

Fewer plastic bags
In the autumn of 2011, DeLaval also conducted a dealer survey to find out more about their opinion of our packaging. The result showed that DeLaval distribution centre in Glinde was using too many plastic bags when packaging products. As a result, the packaging instructions have been changed so that fewer plastic bags will be used from now on.
