The Detmold Group is a responsible leader in our industry and the communities in which we operate. We champion paper and board as the preferred packaging solution because it is more sustainable due to paper being a renewable resource.
Strongly committed to environmentally sound practices at all sites, we ensure where possible the reuse and recycling of materials, safe disposal of waste and waste minimisation throughout all processes. Detmold Group use paper and board only from sustainable and ethical sources in all packaging products.
The Detmold Group is a signatory to the Australian Packaging Covenant. The Covenant is a voluntary initiative by Government and Industry to reduce the environmental effects of packaging. It focuses on the conservation of resources through sustainable product design and production processes, and facilitating the re-use and recycling of used packaging materials.

We have options in most product categories that are 100% compostable. These products utilise materials certified under the European standard EN13432 that says products must break down into natural elements in 90 days in a commercial composting facility.
Over 90% of our inks used for printing are water, soy or UV inks which are better for the environment as they contain less VOCs (volatile organic compounds).
