Swedish envelope and packaging manufacturer Bong has been awarded the right to carry the Carbon Trust’s Carbon Reduction Label on its mailing solutions made of DuPont Tyvek.
The products covered by the Carbon Reduction Label are manufactured from Tyvek material made by DuPont de Nemours (Luxembourg). They are the first mailing products to achieve Carbon Trust certification and are marketed throughout Western Europe, Poland, and Russia, exclusively by Bong AB.
"We knew that Tyvek mailing solutions performed well from an environmental point of view because independent experts had already tested them for DuPont," says Bill Callcut, European Product Manager – Security, at Bong AB. "That gave us the confidence to go one step further and measure our own greenhouse gas emissions and seek independent certification from the Carbon Trust Footprinting Certification Company. We're delighted with the result. It gives our customers reliable and independently verified data on which they can make decisions about the environmental benefits of competing mailing solutions. And it gives us a benchmark against which we can measure our success at further reducing the carbon footprint of our warehousing and distribution processes."
