Corporate & Social Responsibility
Supporting British manufacturing:
Simpac is a wholly owned manufacturer operating over three sites in the UK. We employ over 120 local people, and around 80% of our employees have more than ten years’ continual service. We are committed to paying the UK living wage.
Sourcing with integrity:
Simpac is Sedex registered, and we carefully monitor and help our suppliers in ethical trading and operations. We carefully source products from selected and audited suppliers, based on ethical labour, wages, safety and working conditions.
Respect for the environment:
We promote the principle ‘Reduce, Reuse, Recycle’.
We provide a wide range of environmentally friendly products, from recyclable paper mailing bags and reusable bags for life to compostable caddy liners.
Supporting national charities and local organisations:
We support environmental initiatives, such as Sustain-a-Bee, in conjunction with the British Beekeepers Association and education.
We respect our local communities, and, where possible, sponsor local community initiatives.
Simpac is FSC®-accredited and we source paper in accordance with the FSC® standard. The paper used to manufacture our paper products is sourced from certified suppliers who grow trees in managed forests.
The paper is produced in a sustainable manner, so more trees are re-planted than are cut down.
Paper boasts exceptional environmental credentials, as it is biodegradable, recyclable and comes from an infinitely renewable resource.
Our Quality Assurance team works closely with our in-house designers to help our customers reduce packaging waste, while maintaining excellent product performance.
We work hard to reduce our carbon footprint by ensuring our logistics team optimises delivery loads and our production team minimises waste and maximises efficiencies.
