Interview with Ann at Scanlux Packaging.
Ann is in charge of sustainability at Scanlux Packaging. She has a great passion for taking responsibility for finding the best solution to provide an environmentally-friendly packaging service.
“I’m most concerned about deforestation and pollution of the oceans. This has serious consequences for wildlife, which eventually will affect our lives and our children’s future. I think climate change and global warming are the most urgent issues we all are facing right now.”
Deforestation, illegal plantations and logging are considered to be some of the causes of climate change and global warming. Scientists explain that forests are the “green lungs” of our planet. Trees and planets use the energy from sunlight to absorb carbon dioxide and produce oxygen. So when forests are logged or burnt, CO2 is released into the atmosphere. Increasing amounts of CO2 and other greenhouse gases accelerate the rate of global warming and climate change. We therefore need to stop the deforestation of our planet.
“The packaging industry is gigantic, so that our industry can have a positive impact on environmental issues if we are committed to using more sustainable materials than we did in the past,” Ann says.
Scanlux Packaging is an FSC® and ISO 14001 certified packaging company. (FSC-C126290) By purchasing FSC®-certified products, you can be assured that there was no illegal deforestation, slavery or child labor involved in any production process.

“Once a year, an independent auditor visits us to check our compliance with the FSC standard. We disclose our order history, invoices and accounting data, so they can check that every single transaction matches the data obtained from our supply chain, such as printing factories, pulp factories, loggers, etc. We are 100% confident in FSC®’s traceability.”
