We are committed to ensuring our solutions meet the needs of people at work, while also being as sustainable as possible.
We consider sustainability at every step—by designing resource- and energy-efficient solutions, working with suppliers to use lower-impact materials and manufacturing processes, and ensuring our products have simple end of life solutions.
We’re committed to introducing a more environmentally-friendly Freshpack across our portfolio by 2020. Our goal over the next five years is to reduce the Carbon Footprint of the Freshpack by 25%.
Since 1992 all KLIX cups have been made from recyclable polystyrene. In 2015 we rolled out a new cup with a middle layer made of calcium carbonate – a natural, widely available substance that has a lower environmental foot print than polystyrene. The new cup has been rolled out to 90% of KLIX Cups and uses 10% less plastic.
