Improve the sustainability of our products and the well-being of the communities and stakeholders we impact
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
- We’re in the commissioning stage of a PCR plant in Romania that will turn the collected Big Bags into new Big Bags. For 1 loop bags 30% of the material will be PCR, which is also our goal for 2023. For more information, please read this news article: Building recycling hub in Romania
- MAPGuard: Controls the atmosphere (gas composition) of the inner bag to preserve the packed commodity (like nuts, rice and more) ultimately increasing the shelf life, product quality, and freshness.
- Specialty liners aim to include barrier liners (Alu, EVOH) into the recycling stream with our in-house multi-layer production enables for best in class development

Below are some key projects:
Reduce Waste to Landfill
“Waste is our key driver for our business, therefore we promise to reduce our operational waste and waste to landfill to achieve a better circular economy system.
25% of our plants have already achieved zero waste to landfill, therefore we celebrate in 2021 our Changzhou, Montceau Les Mines, Rheine and Thirsk plants. We started to initiate “learn from the best” program to compare and implement best examples across our facilities.
Recycle Internal Scrap
We recycle 90% of our internal scrap by ourselves and the remainder is sold to recycling companies.
Two wind turbines in Turkey produce 2.4 GWh of energy, saving 1.758 tons of CO2 emissions per year.
Scrap Ratio Decrease
FPS has implemented a 3-year waste reduction program in its Hadimkoy plant in Turkey, resulting in a scrap decrease of 20% over 3 years.
Energy Saving Devices
By using LED Lights and energy saving devices on high power, we save 229 MWh and 113 tons CO2 emissions per year.
Invest in Efficient Machinery
FPS has an investment plan to replace and upgrade old machinery with more efficient and less energy consuming appliances. This project will save 6 GWh energy, 4.400 tons CO2 emissions and 400 tons of PP and PE scrap per year.
Another initiative on waste reduction is using water based inks. Our Matehuala – Mexico and Botoşani – Romania plants are using this ink and accordingly, we started to make tests in Turkey facilities and Negreşti – Romania plant to introduce both 4 loop and 1 loop businesses. “
FPS commits to sustainability. The ESG sustainability framework is used to provide a clear structure of our sustainability strategy.
