Packaging Management

Share

We design our products’ packaging volume and weight to produce minimum waste, and we carry out reuse and recycling projects to reduce the environmental impacts caused by our packaging processes.

 

  • We prevented the cutting of 1,717 trees by using approximately 88% recycled materials in the 29,537 tons of boxes produced for product packaging in our plants in Turkey. We ceased the use of cellophane, a protective coating material on cardboard boxes of small domestic Arçelik appliances, thereby reducing our use of plastics.

  • We used 314,5 tons of 100% recycled and recyclable cardboard boxes in the small domestic appliances produced in Turkey and sold to Turkey and Europe.

  • Arçelik targets to switch to 100% recycled and recyclable cardboard boxes in global operations asof the end of 2022 fiscal year.

  • Studies are initiated to replace Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) with sustainable materials for all major and small domestic appliance categories. In 2020, EPS has been replaced with 39,6 tons of 100% recycled and recyclable cardboard in hoods and Turkish coffee makers.

  • We used approximately 84 million recycled PET bottles in the major domestic appliance product packaging strips.

  • We started to use 100% recycled and recyclable paper in user manuals produced in Turkey.

  • We have reduced our production packaging waste by 366 tons per year by switching to reusable boxesfor shipments of materials with our suppliers. As a result of our packaging improvement efforts with our suppliers, we have prevented the use of 271 tons of plastic, cardboard and wooden pallets.

  • We prevented 1 ton of packaging waste in Beko LLC Refrigerator and Washing Machine Plant in Kirzhach, Russia by using rope nets instead of adhesive tapes.
