As of March 2020, Sonepar Deutschland committed to using only 100% recycled bags for all its packaging.
As a global leader in the building and industry sectors, Sonepar is at the heart of the energy transition. The Group is fully committed to placing the planet at the core of its vision and is preparing for future energy transition challenges, by promoting energy efficient products and raising awareness on sustainability internally using e-learning solutions.
With this vision in mind, Sonepar Deutschland is working on improving its processes for more sustainable and resource-saving logistics. As of March 2020, Sonepar Deutschland committed to using only 100% recycled bags for all its packaging. Used plastics from various disposal lines are sent to the recycling process to produce these bags. Throughout Germany, this initiative will replace approximately 15 million plastic bags a year, which will subsequently have a significant impact on Sonepar Deutschland's CO2 footprint. This one more step to becoming a carbon-neutral company.
