Let's think your packaging

At adapa, we rethink existing packaging solutions in collaboration with our customers to develop more sustainable alternatives. We offer our clients a full-service, holistic concept within the context of this initiative, including consultation, conception, material development as well as process implementation.

We succeed in creating innovative packaging solutions with the help of our 5R programme.

Our 5R programme:


We take responsibility for our products and our processes and are committed to sustainability within the sphere of our Group.

Reduction of waste through thickness reduction or light-weight films.

Plastic material made from renewable feedstocks or fibre-based packaging.

Replacing existing packaging with new concepts, for instance, flexible solutions, aluminium-free or fibre-based materials for flexible packaging.

New packaging materials, designed for recycling processes or with recycled content.


We're fully on track with our sustainability strategy, as our latest achievements show

Reduction of CO2-emissions

We made a complete Group-wide transition towards the use of renewable energy carriers from 34,73 % in 2020 to 100% in 2022. This results in the reduction of CO2-emissions of our electrical energy consumption (“Scope 2”) from 2020 to 2022 by 93%.

We identified that our Group currently has the most impact on the following SDGs:

Memberships & Initiatives


The Circular Economy for Flexible Packaging (CEFLEX) initiative is a collaboration of over 180 European companies, associations and organisations representing the entire value chain of flexible packaging. Together, they work to make all flexible packaging in Europe circular by 2025.


ECOVADIS has grown to become the world’s largest and most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings, creating a global network of more than 90,000 rated companies since its founding 2007.


Flexible Packaging Europe (FPE) plays an advocacy role for the European flexible packaging industry at European and international level. The FPE deals with a diverse range of issues, most notably food contact, sustainability and the environment.


The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) is an independent, international organisation providing the global common language for corporate transparency. It helps businesses and other organisations to understand and communicate their sustainability impacts, enabled through the world’s most widely used standards for sustainability reporting – the GRI Standards.


NEXTLOOPP’s mission is to bridge the gap in the circularity of food grade Polypropylene (PP). It implements innovative recycling processes to close the loop on PP to provide a food contact PP via mechanically recycled packaging from the post-consumer waste – which is unique in the polyolefinic packaging.


The Operation Clean Sweep (OCS)  is an international programme designed to prevent the loss of plastic granules like pellets, flakes and powders into the environment. This programme has various benefits, from its positive contribution to preserving water quality and wildlife, to employee safety and operational efficiency.


SAVE FOOD is an initiative dedicated to fighting against food waste and food loss. Together with their members from industry, politics and civil society, SAVE FOOD aims to drive innovation, promote interdisciplinary dialogue and spark off debates in order to generate solutions across the entire value chain “from field to fork” by involving all actors.
