We work within our industry and with other organizations to promote sustainability as well as the positive impact of plastics in our world. Ampacet actively promotes the positive impact of plastics. We communicate that plastics:
- Reduce the weight of packaging, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the cost of energy.
- Make healthcare more affordable in sterile medical environments.
- Reduce the weight of vehicles, including aircraft, to cut fuel and oil use and CO2 emissions.
- Preserve the freshness of foods and beverages and reduce waste.
- Facilitate the use of renewable energy sources, including wind turbines and solar cells.
- Make our homes and appliances more energy efficient with use of plastic insulation materials.
