Environmental approach

Granplasta's main objectives are: a responsible attitude towards customers and employees, product quality and reliability, environmental and occupational health and safety, and social responsibility.We continuously improve the quality of our products and strive to reduce the impact of our activities on the environment by updating and modernising our equipment and introducing the most advanced technologies.

Granplasta UAB aims to contribute to the preservation and protection of the environment. We strive to use raw materials that produce, consume or dispose of as few emissions and waste as possible.
As part of the implementation of the EU Directive on the Reduction of Single-Use Plastics and its transposition into Lithuanian law, from 3 July 2021 we will no longer use bioplastics or produce aerobically degradable plastic products. We take into account the environmental impact of our packaging and give preference to the raw materials with the lowest environmental impact. To ensure the prevention of packaging waste, we have packaging waste prevention plans in place, and we package our products in packaging produced in accordance with the European harmonised standards, which set out the basic requirements for packaging production.

Granplasta has implemented the Circular Economy production principle.
The Circular Economy is a renewable system in which resource and waste consumption, emissions and energy losses are reduced by managing them correctly and integrating them into a closed energy and material chain.

Plastic is not evil. On the contrary, it has given people new opportunities they never had before. It is not plastic that is evil, it is the fact that it is not properly managed. So it is not a question of getting rid of the variety of plastics, but of using plastics in a sustainable and responsible way, and of making sure that they are collected well. All the packaging we produce (PET, HDPE, LDPE, PP are the most suitable plastics that can be easily resurrected) can be recycled and used to produce new packaging or other products.

According to a Washington Post analysis, the intensive use of toxic chemicals in the process results in 70 times more air pollution and 50 times more water pollution than the production of plastic bags, resulting in a higher toxicity to humans and the environment than HDPE bags. And while 66 per cent of paper and cardboard is recycled, the recycling process requires additional chemicals to remove the ink and return the paper to pulp, which can increase the environmental impact of paper.
