At Elastoplast, our new, lighter folding boxes save 106 tonnes of paper every year – equivalent to the weight of 18 adult African elephants – and are designed for maximum environmental compatibility. In addition, our paper and cardboard is also 100% FSC certified.
We have also removed plastic from our sealing pouches, a change that saves 83 tonnes of plastic each year. This figure is equivalent to a continuous strip of plasters winding around the world 13.5 times.

Elastoplast is part of Beiersdorf, a global skin care company with a global approach to sustainability. As a result, sustainability is deeply rooted in our corporate culture and a key element of our decision-making processes – and, from 2020, an integral part of Beiersdorf’s C.A.R.E.+ corporate strategy.

We will develop these topic areas and focus fields in the years to come, defining targets that will shape our aspirations and help us measure our progress. We are more passionate and determined than ever to act on this crucial topic and contribute as a business to positive change on a global scale.
