Delivering substantial environmental savings

Every year, we provide a sustainability certificate to our customers with the amount of CO₂e, water, energy, solid waste and food waste they have contributed to avoiding over the year by utilizing IFCO RPCs in their supply chain.

These savings you see aren’t just finger-in-the-air numbers. Through several third-party, peer-reviewed life cycle assessments (LCAs) of our products, we’ve scientifically quantified the environmental benefits of the IFCO SmartCycle and our RPCs. The IFCO SmartCycle is a distribution concept that helps to save energy and to reduce water consumption, CO2 emissions and waste. From packing to POS distribution, recollection and cleaning, IFCO RPCs are always handled with sustainable practices including repair and recycling of damaged RPCs.

We’re constantly monitoring the environmental benefits generated by the IFCO SmartCycle so that we can understand our impact – and help our customers to understand theirs. We’re pleased that our total environmental savings have improved as we’ve made our business more efficient, developed new solutions that replace single-use packaging and expanded in different markets.
