Sustainability is a concept that encompasses economic, social and environmental aspects and permeates Polo Films’ entire management process. We are committed to maintaining the harmony between those components in order to ensure the integrity of our company, the environment, and society. When talking about our environmental responsibility, we understand it is fundamental to care for the safety of our operations and to develop actions to keep the right balance between our activities and the planet. For 40 years, in addition to constantly improving our processes, we have stimulated sustainable practices among our collaborators and partners in order to minimize environmental impacts.
A Polo Films compartilha da visão de uma economia circular para os plásticos, na qual os resíduos devem retornar para o ciclo produtivo como matéria-prima para a produção de novos bens de consumo pela indústria. Empresas parceiras coletam materiais reutilizáveis referentes aos itens de embalagens, efetuam a limpeza e recondicionam esses materiais para uso. Assim, recursos que seriam descartados após único uso, retornam para nosso processo produtivo. A Polo Films também é signatária da Coalizão Embalagens, um grupo de cerca de 850 empresas do setor de produção de matérias-primas para embalagens.
‘Projeto Arborizar’/Arborization Project is an initiative aimed at increasing the number of trees in the municipality of Montenegro, in the State of Rio Grande do Sul. Polo Films has supported this project which, during its first stage, has planted seedlings on behalf of our company in different sites around the city. The project also includes visits to city schools to explain to children the importance of having plenty of trees in cities.
Polo Films also supports the ‘Tampinha Legal/Cool Caps’ project, a socio-environmental and educational program organized by the Brazilian plastic processing industry. This initiative has collected plastic lids that would be otherwise discarded in litters and sent them to recycling plants so they may be put to new uses. In addition to ensuring and adequate destination to thousands of small plastic lids, this project has generated financial resources to many charity organizations. Polo Films has stimulated lid collection actions among its collaborators and has provided transportation of donations to collection stations.
