Collection is directly from RafCycle partners like Sonoco Display and Packaging, making it an efficient way for companies to move towards a circular economy.</p><p>“We joined the RafCycle program to help reduce the amount of waste we make as a company and do our bit towards protecting the environment,” explains <strong>Izabela Jędrzejczyk-Beck</strong>, Quality, Health, Safety & Environmental Protection Coordinator at Sonoco Display and Packaging. “We also wanted to increase employee awareness of the issues surrounding waste and improve their commitment to waste segregation in the production area. That was the hardest part of the project: increasing awareness, preparing the waste segregation process, and training employees.”</p><h2>Cooperation delivers results</h2><p>“The employees involved in waste segregation supported the project,” says <strong>Jakub Jaskulski</strong>, Health, Safety & Environmental Specialist at Sonoco Display and Packaging, who organized the area for waste after segregation and monitored it daily to ensure correct segregation. “We received positive feedback, so we’ll be expanding the RafCycle initiative to our five other sites in Poland. We aspire to be a company that promotes safety and environmental policy, so RafCycle fits in well with our broader values and vision.</p><p>“Our cooperation with UPM Raflatac has been good from the start, with any issues we‘ve raised solved immediately,” says Izabela Jędrzejczyk-Beck. “UPM Raflatac is an innovator in sustainability solutions so we are very proud that we can now boast of being a RafCycle project partner – not to mention how we are helping to protect the environment and our planet!”</p><p><img src="http://assets.upmraflatac.com/News%20images/2019/Sonoco%20logo.jpg" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:100px;height:105px;" /></p><p><strong>Sonoco Display and Packaging
