"To produce responsible packaging, we must start first and foremost by promoting internal ecological management systems!" The fact that NO-NAIL BOXES is able to produce responsible packaging is mainly due to the company’s internal environmentally-friendly policy. Indeed, for several years now, NO-NAIL BOXES has implemented a series of measures encouraging its employees to take an ecologically responsible approach.
Reducing greenhouse gas emissions
Other measures have been introduced to reduce staff travel. “Because of the long distances travelled by staff who come from the German-speaking region of Belgium, we have rented office space in Weiswampach that we make available to these employees one day a week. Where we are permitted to do so by law, we allow home-working, and we strongly encourage the use of modern means of communication to reduce travel”, explained Michèle Detaille.
Waste management and electricity savings
NO-NAIL BOXES has gained the Luxembourg designation of “SuperDrecksKëscht® fir Betriber”, amongst others. This label demonstrates the company’s commitment to the prevention, management and reduction of waste.
Established in Wiltz, No-Nail Boxes has been manufacturing folding plywood and steel crates for industry since 1961. Every year, some 300,000 cases, 90% of which are tailor-made, come out of its production lines. Certified ISO 9001 and 14001, AEO, PEFC, CSR, SuperDrecksKëscht fir Betriber and Dry at Gesond mat System, No-Nail Boxes is integrated in the packaging division of the ALIPA Group, a Luxembourg specialist in industrial packaging and lifting, which counts at total about 130 employees.
