Corporate Sustainability

Falcon Plastics is committed to its corporate responsibility when it comes to the environment and sustainability. Being part of the plastics industry means we have to care about the environment even more, not less. 

Our commitment is built on three pillars:

Environmental Stewardship

From LED and motion sensor lighting to resource conservation and recycling, Falcon Plastics is doing its part to reduce, reuse, and recycle. We have recycling fully integrated in our facilities. 

This also includes reusable totes and shipping containers. We recycle or reuse shipping containers to cut down on unnecessary waste for a majority of our customers.

Very little — if any — of what we produce is considered single-use plastics. With some OEM limitations due to food-grade, medical products, or products of a similar nature, a great majority of the parts we manufacture contain recycled materials. Our ammunition trays are made from nearly all recycled materials. 

A majority of our machines are equipped to regrind waste material for reuse. Our facilities are adding in new equipment and continually improving our processes to be more efficient and sustainable.

Social + Cultural Leadership

Environmental sustainability is fast becoming an expectation for companies, from both our customers and our employees. With plastic products found everywhere in our homes, vehicles, and the products we buy, we know our corporate responsibility is to do what we can to have a positive impact on our environment. 

We are a workplace where our team members are empowered to engage and innovate. We encourage our team members throughout the company to keep learning and improving our processes while also maintaining a safe environment.

Economic Impact

Our commitment to reducing waste and improving our carbon footprint as a plastics company is shared by everyone, from our shareholders to team members. 

Automation has played a large part in our manufacturing facilities, cutting down on waste and saving time for our employees with repetitive tasks. We regrind and reprocess materials daily, and we’re always looking for ways to recycle more plastic waste and continually improve our environmental practices. We’ve also incorporated more virtual meetings and remote workstations to reduce travel pollution.
