Minimising our impact

Aligning relevant non-financial data with GRI environmental indicators revealed areas where RPC Astrapak can be more proactive in responding to stakeholder expectations and building trust. This includes monitoring and engaging trends such as governance and legislation, which could impact the business industry.

RPC Astrapak maintains active membership among these bodies in various capacities, from Board representation to providing funding in the form of the following industry levies (on polymer purchased):

  • R76/ton of polystyrene resin: Polystyrene Packaging Council (“PSPC”)
  • R100/ton of polyolefin resin, effective from April 2012: The Polyolefin Plastic Recycling Company (“POLYCO”)
