Janus Vaten strives to achieve sustainability in terms of products, processes and contacts. One of the challenges that Janus Vaten has set itself is to perform all processes with minimal energy consumption, a minimum amount of waste, and minimal air and water emissions. Employees are involved in the Lean Production System at Janus Vaten, aimed at reducing waste during the production process. This is a continual improvement process. By constantly supplying 'packaging in top condition', Janus Vaten satisfies the sustainability wishes of its customers. Customers who jointly contribute to the business continuity, in the short term as well as in the long term.

Re-use of packaging better for the environment.
Since humanity has adopted a more frugal attitude towards the use of all raw materials for the mission, the re-use of packaging has become increasingly important. The report from SERRED about the Carbon Footprint shows that the re-use of packaging (in terms of the CO2 burden on the environment) is beneficial in comparison with new packaging.
