At Fres-co System USA, Inc. (“Fres-co”), we understand the importance of environmental sustainability. We are committed to environmental stewardship and sustainable business practices guiding how we source our raw materials, produce our products and safely operate our facilities.
We are committed to making a positive impact on the communities in which we operate by conducting our business in a safe, environmentally sound, sustainable and charitable manner. To Fres-co, social responsibility includes providing a workplace with equal employment and business opportunities for applicants, employees, customers and visitors; while complying with applicable local, state and federal laws, including but not limited to employment, safety and environmental requirements.
We will constantly strive to sustain and improve our business success, eliminate waste and drive costs from our processes through continuous improvement initiatives. We will work with our suppliers and customers to regularly explore opportunities to efficiently use and manage the resources needed to manufacture our packaging products and deliver them to our customers.
Fres-co’s commitment to continuous improvement and reducing operating costs will be executed in a manner that will minimize the environmental impact of our operations and products, with the goal of continually improving against our sustainability goals to create value.
Fres-co is committed to creating a positive and safe environment for all stakeholders. We are proud to participate in the Ecovadis Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) assessment, the leading CSR assessment and rating system in the industry.
