ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY CHOICES

We offer customers environmentally friendly alternatives to many of their distribution product solutions by eliminating possible harmful products including single use plastic packaging, wooden shipping crates, plastic pallets and polystyrene void fill. The opportunity to change, to make a difference, to introduce more sustainable packaging solutions, paper pallets, a truly sustainable supply chain is a choice we can all make.

CONTRIBUTING TO A CIRCULAR ECONOMY

All PALLITE® products are made from just paper and PVA glue so they can be pulped at the paper mills and turned back into recycled paper again and again, adding to a more circular economy. In the UK, we use over 9.9 million tonnes of paper each year. We recycle around 80% of paper in the UK.

MOVING TO A MORE SUSTAINABLE LOGISTICAL SOLUTION

In 2021, the UK transport and warehouse sector generated over 45 thousand tonnes of greenhouse gases. This equates to over 10% of all greenhouse gases emitted by any industrial sector in the UK.
Making the simple switch to a more sustainable logistical solution, saves energy, resources, reduces emissions, adds to the circular economy and is good news for the planet.

“We can’t keep wasting resources. Products and materials must be kept in the economy […] When it comes to products like… packaging, we should be able to get the materials back.”

PROVEN TO BE ENVIRONMENTALLY BETTER THAN WOOD

Independent tests have proved that PALLITE® products are less harmful to the environment and contribute less to global warming than wooden alternatives. All our products are made from FSC certified material, more than 80% recycled content, and are 100% recyclable or compostable. They are also designed to be reused without losing their strength.

BESPOKE SIZES TAILORED TO YOUR REQUIREMENTS

PALLITE® products can be manufactured to bespoke sizes quickly and efficiently. From product packaging to a tailor-made shipping crate, all consignments can be designed to fit the space available with no unnecessary transit space. A potential of 28.5% additional product allowance per shipment, saving on total journeys required and reducing the carbon footprint of the consignment.

For example, by using a PALLITE® standard paper pallet, in a road freight scenario travelling 400miles, the potential annual saving of CO2 equates to 57,241 KgCO2e, resulting in £21,694 in fuel costs. This saving would remove 8 cars off the road, 7 houses annual electricity consumption or over 650 trees planted.

"There is no going back - no matter what we do now, it's too late to avoid climate change and the poorest, the most vulnerable, those with the least security, are now certain to suffer… If we bring emissions down with sufficient vigour, we may yet avoid the tipping points that will make runaway climate change unstoppable”

Sir David Attenborough

CUSTOMERS DEMANDING MORE FROM MANUFACTURERS

Global Megatrends have affected consumers, suppliers, and the global supply chain. There is increased environmental awareness from consumers resulting in greater pressure to choose environmentally friendly solutions for manufacturing, transporting, and storing products.

Eight global supply chains, including the UK, account for more than 50% of annual greenhouse gas emissions. Most of these emissions are embedded in the supply chain. Organisations must start to act more ethically and sustainably to reduce their impact on the environment.

With the increased consumer consciousness, organisations must start to become more transparent in all areas of Environment, Social and Governance (ESG), to build brand recognition, trust, and ethical relationships.
