At the beginning of the year, we presented to you our new year’s resolutions which support BE Networks’ sustainability plan. Staying true to our goals today we are more than happy to inform you that we already switched our tapes from PVC to reinforced paper, resulting to great benefits for the environment and our community:
To begin with, the manufacturer of our new reinforced paper tape is ISO14001 certified. The manufacturing process of paper versus plastic tape eliminates the use of hazardous chemic als, reduces energy consumption, and minimizes industrial waste.
Due to significantly increased strength, it requires 66% less tape per box than PVC tape, eliminating thousands of rolls of PVC tape per year. Its increased strength singificantly improves the safety products too, minimizing product damages during shipping.
As a result of reduced order volume from the manufacturer there will be less deliveries, along with less petrol and other materials required per delivery
Our new paper is also made from fully biodegradable and recyclable materials which means it can be left on box for recycling, eliminating costly chemical removal process for our customers.
Steadily but surely, we illustrate our pipeline of sustainability resolutions, and we will keep you updated for every single point! We are already working on achieving the rest of our goals for 2022, so stay tuned!
