Flexible packaging is the fastest growing plastic packaging category. Because it is predominanty single-use, with very low recycling and high leakage rates, it is also by far the most challenging market segment to address on the journey towards a circular economy. Koehler Paper played an important part in the latest project of the international charity “Ellen MacArthur Foundation”, to point out options for a circular economy in flexible packaging.

Koehler supports initiative that contributes to the realization of the UN Sustainable Development Goals

The Ellen MacArthur Foundation, an international charity, was launched in 2010 with the aim of accelerating the transition to the circular economy. They create evidence-based original research on the benefits of a circular economy, and how it can contribute to solving global challenges like climate change and biodiversity loss.

Jens Kriete, sustainability manager of the Koehler Group, points out: “We’re very happy to had the chance to support the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, the globally highly respected initiative to fight plastic pollution and drive circular economy, in this strategy.” As a leading supplier of specialty paper Koehler brought in its knowledge in flexible packaging paper solutions and sustainable fiber supply chains. “At the Koehler Group, we are convinced that we as a company can contribute to the realization of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and supporting this initiative is part of our contribution,” completes Jens Kriete.
