With more than 30 years of experience in core relief aid products, we believe we have a responsibility to set an example. This has defined every aspect of our business practices.
Alpinter recognises that our activities in manufacturing and distributing shelter and core relief items has an impact on the environment. We organise our everyday business according to 4 basic environmental principles, which guide our efforts to minimise the impact of our activities on the environment:
CONSCIOUS MATERIAL CHOICES
We carefully select and choose the materials we work with, taking into account client specifications, real-world performance, durability and eco-friendliness.
We optimise our products, their packing and our logistics solutions to ship and transport the products as efficiently and eco-consciously as possible.
WASTE ELIMINATION AND SECOND LIFE
In all aspects of production, we integrate processes that allow us to optimise our production and eliminate as much waste material as possible. We consciously design our products and packaging wherever possible to encourage their re-use (i.e. give a second life) once they have served their initial purpose.
CONSCIOUS USE OF NATURAL RESOURCES
In all activities, we consciously manage the use of natural resources. From innovative industrial production processes all the way to policies for switching off lights and heating at HQ when not required.
In 2020 our environmental efforts evolved and converged into the Alpinter Environmental Impact Initiative, a public statement of our previous and present efforts to minimise our environmental impact, and our commitments to expanding these efforts in the future in conjunction with all industry stakeholders.
