In a world where we face a multitude of environmental challenges, we at Skymark Packaging are aiming to redefine how business can play a vital part in improving the lives of everyone around us.

At Skymark Packaging we take our obligation to our Environment serious. As such, we are always on the look-out for improvements to our environmental impacts on society. As a heavy user of Natural resources, both in terms of our Utilities and Raw materials, as well as being a user of a multitude of chemical products, we are all too aware that we must strive to adapt our practices and products to be as clean and green as is possible.

In the past, we have been working on a number of successful projects on reducing our waste footprint, such as on-site recycling of Plastic materials or reducing our overall power consumption by significant amounts. Now though, we are taking our ambitions to the next level by actively working towards compliance to Zero Waste to Landfill requirements.

Our team have spent significant amounts of time to assess and audit all of our current Waste streams, from wood and metal through to plastics and chemicals with the aim of diverting any waste away from landfill. Due to the excellent work conducted by all of our operational staff, we are proud to say that none of our waste materials are currently sent to landfill. Many are being recycled into new products (internally and externally) or used as alternatives to fossil fuels within the supply chain to construction materials or Energy from Waste plants within the UK.

If you are looking for a supply chain partner who has an impeccable record in developing ground-breaking products, whilst finding innovative ways of reducing its impact on the environment, then Skymark Packaging should be the first name on your list.

Skymark Packaging has long held a desire to conserve our environment. We produce innovative packaging solutions, efficiency projects and next level working methods. Whenever we explore a possibility to improve, we endeavour to involve our work force or (wherever possible) local companies that share the same philosophy as Skymark, reducing unnecessary carbon emissions associated with travel and logistics.

The Pureloop project is another fine example of our philosophy. Together with our project partners at Pureloop in Austria, and in line with our commitment to “Operation Clean Sweep”, Skymark continue to tirelessly work to improve its recycling rates of plastic.

Our partners at Pureloop have enabled us to provide a closed loop waste solution to ensure our objectives are achievable “Recycle and re-use as much of our Plastic Packaging Waste as possible”
Housed within a purpose-built environment, our Pureloop unit significantly contributes to a dramatic reduction in Waste materials, as well as allowing us to contribute to the wider societal good by recycling plastic packaging materials.

The project enables us to offer a closed loop recycling solution to not only address production over-makes and associated materials at Skymark, but also offer our clients the peace of mind and assurance that we can offer a fully controlled and licenced recycling route for their post-industrial plastic waste stream(s). With Plastics receiving weekly headline news, we are proud to say that we have recycled over 450t of plastic Packaging between January and September 2019 which would otherwise have been sent to landfill or used as Refuse derived Fuel.

Instead, we have recycled the material into usable pellets which can be used in a controlled manner to displace virgin plastic use, thus significantly reducing the impact on the environment. Our Next step? Simple – Significantly beat this year’s figures. Skymark and Pureloop – a beautifully symbiotic relationship, not just another grind…
