Nampak Plastics Europe Ltd. received the Sir Peter Parker Award for sustainable business leadership at the Sustainable City Awards. The firm’s Infini bottle was also highly commended in the Responsible Waste Management category.  

“We’re very proud of the efforts we take to ensure Nampak’s procedures and products are the very best that they can be and sustainability is at the heart of the Nampak business,” said Eric Collins, managing director for Nampak, based in Newport Pagnell, England. “This latest recognition for Infini highlights our commitment to continuing to develop the innovative, lightweight bottle, to help reduce the bottle’s carbon footprint even further.”

Judges from the environment judging panel praised the high density polyethylene Infini bottle as, “a product designed with circular economy thinking at its heart. A circular economy requires businesses to think differently about the way they make, sell, reuse and recycle and, in turn, creates opportunities for innovation, for creative thinking, and for challenging conventional business models.”
