Packaging manufacturer Duo UK has launched DuoGreen, which will help companies to create sustainable, environmentally low-impact packaging solutions.
DuoGreen will focus on innovations and adoption of new ideas to help packaging users reduce their environmental impact.
A hub is also expected to be formed where companies can come together to share environmental best practices.
DuoGreen has been created to showcase the products and services which are readily available and easy to implement, and which will help businesses to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40% by 2016, while maintaining productivity and operational efficiency.
Duo UK brand director Zoe Brimelow said: "Packaging is an essential item for many businesses and our customer feedback constantly points to the importance of ensuring this packaging is sustainable.
"DuoGreen helps businesses realise their environmental goals which we believe can only be achieved by sharing expertise, promoting new sustainable inventions and encouraging those in the packaging industry to celebrate their successes. We are always searching for new sustainable packaging technologies to introduce to our customers and together help businesses achieve their environmental goals."
Duo UK said that the new venture is aimed at developing new sustainable packaging technology to reduce the impact of packaging on the environment and help customers achieve their environmental goals.
The company has recently invested in closed-loop recycling, educational outreach programmes and the development of odour-free 100% recycled packaging.
Duo was also selected to be the first UK manufacturer to produce mailing bags using Green PE, a polythene that uses sugarcane, rather than oil, as its base substance.
