Sustainability

The worldview of our industry has changed significantly from what it was when National Resources was founded more than 35 years ago. Today more and more companies understand the commitment we must make to ensuring our industry is focused on sustainability.

Serious about Sustainability

The National Resources team is serious about the impact our work has on the environment, and we want to ensure that our work is contributing to a sustainable future for this industry and the people who are part of it.

Commitment to Sustainability

So, what does our commitment to sustainability mean?

  • It means that in line with our continual focus on sourcing the highest quality products, we’re also paying attention to the focus our global suppliers have on the sustainability of their materials and products.
  • This can be evident in their R&D investment around new manufacturing processes or creating more sustainable materials, as is reflected with partners such as Constantia and Cuki Cofresco.
  • In many regions, there are now emerging standards that clearly define the extent to which materials or products are sustainable and designed for a circular economy. In the EU, these include Recyclass and CEFlex.

Monitoring our Supply Chain

We are also continually reviewing and monitoring our supply chain’s commitment to an increased focus on sustainable goals across their production processes. An example of that is the investment being made by one of our largest metals suppliers, Mingtai out of South Korea, who are focused on improving their carbon footprint.
