Environmental and Sustainability Policies - at Rigid, we take pride in the sustainable nature of the corrugated that we manufacture. To this end, we hold the environment and product sustainability high on our overall agenda. You can review our Environmental and Sustainability Policies here:
The well established and widely acknowledged environmental benefits of Corrugated Packaging can be further supported by the use of responsibly sourced materials. The Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) ensures that the harvestings of wood conforms to strict controls. This far reaching Standard can also apply to the production and use of virgin fibre and recycled papers. We have in place procedures that enable us to offer Chain of Custody (CoC) confirmation to our customers who instruct us of their requirements. The supporting documentation relevant to each delivery of those items enables them to readily demonstrate compliance helping to meet the objectives of their own and possibly their customers' Environmental Policies.
Corporate Social Responsibility Policy
We are committed to promoting protection of the environment: supporting charities and local communities; promoting equal opportunities; ensuring safe and efficient working practices; and working with customers/suppliers who uphold similar values.
Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy
We have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and we are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in our own business or in any of our supply chains.
Gender Pay Gap Report
Rigid Containers Ltd. welcomes the UK Government’s Gender Pay Gap reporting initiative and we believe that promoting equal opportunity throughout our business is essential for the individuals we employ and the future success of the company.
