We understand sustainability as “Development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."
United Nations World Commission on Environment and Development, 1987
How is MCL sustainable?
MCL is carbon neutral in Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions.
Product design focuses on the most sustainable package solutions to make our packaging fully recyclable.
0% Industrial Waste
All our industrial and processed scrap is extruded and reused.
mclPACK has sourced recycled materials for many of its packaging products.
0% Water Pollution
Our production process does not require any pollutants to be flushed into water streams.
mclPACK aims to optimise the most environmental aspect of plastic - its 100% recyclability if disposed of correctly.
MCL has achieved its carbon neutral target on Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions. We are working with our supply chain to reduce scope 3 emissions.
Air tight plastic packaging preserves food for longer.
Plastic has the ideal properties for a circular economy - it is durable and efficient to recycle. Don't throw plastic away - recycle it.
Our plastic packaging provides food with the protection from external factors that cause spoilage.
Through investment in alternative, green energy supply, state-of-the-art electric injection moulding machines and innovative and sustainable cooling systems we have managed to maintain an energy neutral manufacturing process since 2018.
We have committed to investing in electrical vehicles for the distribution of our products and have encouraged the use of electric scooters amongst our employees on their commute to work. We have sourced, support and promote the use of recycled plastics for a range of our packaging products and our aim is to work with our partners in a drive to create a circular economy by promoting the easy recyclability of plastic if products are disposed of properly.
MCL’s sustainability drive has been guided by the UN’s Global Compact Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) as they offer clear goals to help us successfully implement responsible and successful business practices.
We are ISO 14001 accredited and are committed to ensuring that we always consider our impact on the environment, our economy and our society in the growth of our business.
If our environment is the body with which we deliver our products, our people are the head and heart of the company. Our staff complement is a crucial element to maintaining the values and overall health of our company. We try to recruit staff who share our values and we have committed to their continued professional development by providing regular training on quality and operations and offering career advancement to all staff showing potential and drive. We are also constantly working on our physical work environment to continue to provide a safe work environment for our employees.
Long-term collaborations with partners in our supply chain has enabled us to develop great relationships internationally and we are always looking to ensure that we are using their most efficient and sustainable services and products and embracing technological innovations that will help our growth as a business.
