XANDOR Plastics are totally committed to becoming the most sustainable plastics company on the planet.

This approach is ingrained in our business strategy and will become enshrined in all we do. A truly great Company cannot sacrifice our environment for short term commercial gain. Rather, we believe that as a Company aspiring to greatness, we must have a structured approach to delivering sustainability. Such an approach, will:

  • Support and encourage our customers on their Sustainability journeys
  • Minimise our environmental impact
  • Inspire our colleagues to act in a responsible manner inside and outside work
  • Encourage suppliers to improve their environmental credentials
  • Generate better long term returns for our stakeholders.

XANDOR Plastics will never be involved in the manufacture of single use disposable packaging and will always consider the ease of recyclability at the end of life, prior to introducing a product into manufacture.

We have clearly defined workstreams and targets to achieve our Sustainability Goals. For example, we will achieve 50% Net Zero to Energy by 2027 before becoming carbon neutral by 2039.

When introducing new products, our NPI procedure requires us to consider the most sustainable packaging for them to be shipped in. In most cases we are able to utilise sustainable returnable stillages.

Traditional plastics are a by-product of the cracking of oil to make products like petrol and diesel. XANDOR are contemplating a world where crude oil is not produced in volume. Where will polymers come from?

One solution is to make polymers from naturally occurring materials, but many of these are derived from foodstuffs and widespread use could result in hunger and famine, particularly in developing countries. Engineering properties of such products are also questionable.

Working with raw material suppliers, XANDOR are at the forefront of investigations into the use of polymers made from waste products originating from bio waste and industrial waste. Innovative chemical recycling techniques take waste plastics back to monomers which can then be repolymerised and processed as if they were virgin materials.
