Recognizing Excellence within the Safety Industry based on New and Innovative Solutions
September 2022, Cyberjaya, Malaysia – Ansell, a global leader in protection solutions, has been recognized with a 2022 “Best Product/Service” award in the Sustainability Category by World of Safety & Health Asia. This win recognizes the technology innovation of the Surgical SMART Pack™ and the role its innovative design plays in reducing the carbon footprint of the packaging.
Hospitals and other medical workplaces will further benefit from waste reduction as every packaging element is now made from recyclable materials. The dispenser boxes and cartons are made from 70% and 90% recycled materials respectively. In addition, we have reduced the material thickness of the SMART Pack™ top web and are in the process of changing other materials in the packaging components which, once finalized, will result in a 10% baseline reduction for the SMART Pack™ packaging from FY20.
Protection, quality and performance have always been Ansell’s priority. As the world’s No. 1 provider of branded surgical gloves, Ansell has been at the forefront of sustainable packaging design since we launched this smaller and, more user-friendly surgical glove packaging that moves away from fossil-fuel based packaging materials to bio-based content or recycled materials SMART Pack™ packaging results in up to 50% dimensional and enables us to fit more cartons in shipping containers to generate lower transport emissions per pair of gloves.
