We all know that manoeuvring a large ship takes time. Patience and professionalism are required from the captain and the crew navigating a large ship safely to port. At Rani Plast, we think in much the same way about the sustainable development of the plastics industry.
It may take some time to introduce new ways of working, to use sustainable raw materials in all our films and to establish carbon neutrality – even if we have already come a long way to achieve all this. All our improvement work is done to meet the needs of our customers with regard to packaging and sustainability.
With reference to sustainable development, Rani Plast aims for carbon-neutral production by 2035, but as a company we also want to adopt a wider social responsibility. For this reason, we are launching a collaboration with the John Nurminen Foundation, which has been working for a clean Baltic Sea since 2005.
We are pleased to see thatRani Plast’s sustainability strategy emphasises sustainable packaging solutions, optimising the use of plastics, and promoting the circular economy and social responsibility.Annamari Arrakoski-Engardt, John Nurminen Foundation
“We want to thank Rani Plast for supporting our work and taking environmental responsibility. We are pleased to see that Rani Plast’s sustainability strategy emphasises sustainable packaging solutions, optimising the use of plastics, and promoting the circular economy and social responsibility”, says Annamari Arrakoski-Engardt, CEO of the John Nurminen Foundation.
To achieve carbon-neutral production, Rani Plast is investing in several areas. We are reducing the climate impact of our films by using more recyclable and renewable raw materials. Last year, Rani Plast switched to using electricity derived from 100% renewable energy sources.
‘We are facing a major change, but we want to assume social responsibility and become an increasingly environmentally friendly company. We appreciate the work done by the John Nurminen Foundation for the benefit of the Baltic Sea and look forward to future co-operation’, says Jari Palosaari, CEO of Rani Plast.

During spring 2021, we will conduct a study to further improve our customer service. In connection with the customer survey, we will donate EUR 20 to the John Nurminen Foundation for each answer, as we want to continue to play our part in a more sustainable future.
