ORBIS and the Circular Economy

A more sustainable business starts with the supply chain and how product and parts are stored, handled, transported and delivered. The take-make-waste philosophy no longer meets societal requirements. The circular economy concept — which is based on a continuous flow of product in the value circle — is the future of a successful, sustainable supply chain. It focuses on designing out waste (reduce), keeping products in use (reuse) and regenerating natural resources (recycle/renew). 

As a steward of sustainability, ORBIS is committed to driving the circular economy and a better world for future generations through environmentally-friendly product design, sustainable operations and material usage.

The three principles of the circular economy include the 3Rs: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. The implementation of reusable packaging is the catalyst to ensure companies can achieve all 3Rs, while delivering supply chain efficiency, cost savings and operational productivity.

ORBIS helps companies reduce/eliminate waste associated with single-use or expendable packaging; reuse packaging assets over a long service life and recycle packaging at the end-of-life, so packaging is repurposed into other useful product and never enters the solid waste stream.
