WP is fully committed to playing an active role in supporting the transformation to a circular economy, as well as introducing and fully integrating Circular Thinking in the packaging sector. With the ISCC Plus accreditation, the company can now offer its customers certified sustainable materials – for chemically recycled and biobased materials – in addition to other low carbon alternatives like mechanically recycled PCR. WP aims to implement the ISCC scheme globally. Last year the site in Ede, Netherlands received the ISCC Plus accreditation and now the site in Spain.

“We are very pleased to have acquired the ISCC PLUS certification. With the mass balance certification across the entire value chain, we want to achieve transparency and at the same time help customers to reduce their own carbon footprint,“ comments Ivone Ardanaz, Manager Integrated Management Systems in Spain. “By gaining this certification, we are making great progress towards implementing our sustainability strategy and transitioning towards a more circular economy.”

The site in the north of Spain produces Caps, Closures, Jars and Lids for regional and international brands in the Personal Care and Food markets, among others. They produce for the local market as well as for European and overseas destinations. The ISCC sustainability scheme is latest example in a list of initiatives to reduce the environmental footprint.
