Our Commitment to Sustainability at GRAF UK

Sustaining the Environment Through Innovation and Responsibility

At GRAF UK, we are deeply committed to advancing sustainable practices across all operations. Our efforts are underscored by our achievement of the Planet Mark Business Certification, a testament to our dedication to reducing our environmental impact and moving towards net-zero emissions.

Planet Mark Certification: A Symbol of Our Commitment

This internationally recognised certification is more than just an accolade. It’s a symbol of our collective effort and a framework that guides our journey. By measuring our carbon footprint, engaging our team, and communicating our progress, we are actively contributing to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and supporting crucial environmental projects. Through our partnership with Cool Earth, we help protect endangered rainforests in Central Peru, directly supporting the Asháninka community. This is a cause we can all be proud of.

Revolutionising Recycling: From Waste to Resource

Our innovative recycling practices play a pivotal role in our sustainability strategy. At the GRAF Competence Centre for Raw Materials in Herbolzheim, we transform everyday plastic waste into high-quality raw materials—such as yoghurt pots and shampoo bottles. Our advanced technology uniquely separates black plastics, a process unparalleled by other facilities, allowing us to utilise over 70% recycled materials in our product range.

The Competence Centre is a beacon of 100% sustainability, embodying our commitment to local job creation, resource conservation, and production of environmentally friendly products. It uses rainwater as process water and coolant, minimising our ecological footprint. By repurposing plastic waste, we prevent the emission of 100,000 tonnes of CO2 annually, the equivalent of the emissions from 60,000 passenger cars.
