Sustainability Matters Program

Trident SPS is committed to the continuous development of products that help our customers meet their environmental goals, as well as minimizing the impact of our own operations through reduced electricity and water consumption and other energy-saving initiatives.

Best Environmental Practices

The program also seeks to promote the many sustainable benefits of plastics including light weight, food protection and preservation, and recyclability. In line with this, Trident SPS works to ensure best environmental practice throughout all its locations, and to encourage similar high standards from its suppliers. Equally important, our new product development program is strongly focused on incorporating sustainability benefits to support plastics’ many advantages.
