When manufacturing packaging products and film, Winpack strives to reuse as much material as possible. What cannot be reintroduced into production goes to the company's recycling plant, which we visit in today's episode. By analyzing the composition and origin of waste received, the team was able to devise ways to minimize the generation of that waste - contributing to the circular economy and reducing its carbon footprint. Their experience demonstrates that sustainability can be the focus of a lean project from the beginning, not just something that produces nice side effects.
Thank you to Lean Institute Chile for facilitating this company visit.
