Sustainability

At Hazel 4D we take our environmental responsibilities seriously.

We’re committed to operating in a responsible, sustainable way, recognising the economic, social and environmental impact of our activities. As it’s in everyone’s best interests that we do this, we apply our knowledge and expertise to ensure a responsible approach to our own business and support our suppliers, partners and customers to reach their environmental goals, too.

We recognise that sustainability is a journey, which is why we are constantly searching for new ways to improve our sustainability credentials, and setting targets so we can hold ourselves accountable for our role in protecting the environment. By investing in the latest innovations in the packaging industry, including eco friendly products which are made from recycled content, are recyclable or offer paper-based alternatives, we are industry leaders in sustainable products.

HOW CAN HAZEL 4D HELP WITH YOUR BUSINESS’ SUSTAINABILITY GOALS?

Sustainable packaging consultations

So that we can fully understand your business and your company’s environmental goals, an experienced Hazel 4D consultant will visit you to assess how sustainable your current products and processes are, as well as looking at your costs, what’s working well for you and what can be improved. Then we’ll make recommendations, help you implement them and provide you with ongoing support.

We can help you become more environmentally friendly by:

  • Reducing product damages – decreasing returns and the associated use of extra resources
  • Minimising energy use – by upgrading outdated machinery and making processes more efficient
  • Recommending sustainable products and machinery and helping you introduce them

Plastic Packaging Tax

HOW WE’VE HELPED OUR CUSTOMERS...

AN ELEGANT GREEN PACKAGING SOLUTION FOR AN ICONIC BRITISH BRAND

A large British retailer, whose brand is synonymous with luxury, wanted to move to environmentally friendly, plastic-free packaging – whilst still delivering outstanding product protection and an unparalleled unboxing experience for their customers. Simon Roe, one of Hazel 4D’s experienced Packaging Consultants, completed a full packaging audit for the client, carefully observing their end-to-end operation. Having fully understood every element, Simon was then able to draw on his extensive knowledge to recommend plastic free, environmentally sustainable options for every area of the packing process.

Intelligent load stability

Reducing plastic waste and eliminating harmful gases

A bathroom product supplier was wasting a lot of plastic by applying one size of shrink hood to all of their pallets. Hazel 4D consultants installed energy efficient pallet wrappers using Extremus stretch film instead of shrink hoods, giving them great stability and a cut in plastic use. Plus they no longer needed to use propane gas shrink guns to fit hoods. In total they saved £60,000 a year and reduced the amount of plastic they use by around 80% per pallet.
