Sustainable & ethical wherever possible

Here at Westbury Packaging we don’t only produce sustainable packaging, we also produce packaging sustainably. We’ve also gone one step further than most by achieving Carbon Neutrality.

Carbon Neutrality is achieved by calculating your carbon footprint and reducing it to zero through a combination of in-house efficiency measures and supporting external emission reduction projects.

Part of the process involved setting up a robust environmental policy, covers everything from energy, recycling, fuel, vehicles, lighting, office/factory temperatures, travel, employee behaviour, and much much more.

The whole team at Westbury Packaging are extremely proud of our Carbon Neutrality status and will continue to focus on the health of our planet and future generations. Full article to follow shortly.

Environmentally friendly packaging

As a packaging manufacturer we have an important ecological role to play. We also feel we have a responsibility to try and help our clients reduce the impact that their packaging has on the environment, both in terms of materials used and carbon footprint. To this end, we offer a wide range of environmentally friendly packaging.


On average, our corrugated boxes are approximately 2/3 recycled fibre and 1/3 virgin material. Corrugated cardboard has a recycling rate of 91% in the UK. This is the highest recycling rate of any type of packaging in the UK. As a direct result, every four months an area the size of Greater London is saved from landfill.

In our factory, every off-cut is fed, via a conveyor belt system, into an efficient semi-automatic baler for recycling. All our finished boxes are recyclable and our pallet exchange service allows us to cut down on wood wastage.


Trees feed our business so we like to look after them. We are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). The FSC helps take care of forests and the people and wildlife who call them home.

All of our paper-based raw materials are purchased from suppliers that are FSC approved. As such we are helping to ensure that forests worldwide are well managed and sustainable, with trees being replanted and not depleted.


When stocking up on packaging supplies, shrink-wrap and other raw materials, we try to buy from manufacturers who have their own ecological policies. Materials available include recyclable, degradeable and biodegradable plastics, please just ask us for details.

CO2 Emissions

When renewing company vehicles including our delivery fleet, CO2 emissions are a deciding factor in our choice. Working together as partners, we also aim to make your supply chain more efficient thereby reducing your carbon footprint.
