Operation Clean Sweep®

The EPS industry signed the Operation Clean SweepĀ® Covenant on March 18. In doing so, the Dutch producers of EPS insulation and packaging products are committing themselves to the goal of zero emissions of plastic granules, flakes and powder to the environment.

Operation clean sweep = taking responsibility
Participation in Operation Clean Sweep (hereinafter OCS) is self-evident for Synprodo and the other members of Stybenex, the EPS umbrella organisation. The Stybenex members take a structural approach to the prevention and reduction of (litter) waste with demonstrable and effective measures. The members want to prevent loss of pellets (raw materials), beads (expanded EPS) and EPS residual material, in the production and logistics chain, but also in the immediate vicinity of the production location.

By signing the OCS-covenant, Synprodo, together with all other Stybenex members, explicitly expresses its commitment, also through this program, to realize its duty of care for people and the environment.

#NRKbuitenterreindag, action against litter
Stybenex lives up to its word and takes action against litter. During the #NRKbuitenterreindag on March 19, the branch organisation, and therefore Synprodo, will participate in the national clean-up campaign. This way we pay attention to a better environment and the reduction of litter.
