Nampak Plastics is a subsidiary of Nampak, a large South African packaging organization specializing in a wide range of packaging solutions. Nampak Plastics is the UK's leading manufacturer of High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) bottles, with nine sites across the UK and Northern Ireland. It manufactures around two billion bottles per annum and currently employs around 600 employees.

However, what sets Nampak apart from other companies is the lengths that it goes to in order to ensure that its waste management procedures are the very best that they can be. Indeed, sustainability is at the heart of the Nampak business: from its commitment to creating innovative, lightweight packaging solutions to staff understanding of how its manufacturing processes impact on the environment. Nampak has launched a product which helps to save 34,000 tonnes of carbon each year and reduced the overall amount of carbon it produces by 16% (equivalent to taking 12,000 cars off the road). These milestones – and many more – have been attained through a variety of different work streams, including product innovation and working processes.
