BPI celebrates decade of FTSE4Good inclusion


British Polythene Industries (BPI) plc is marking a CSR milestone. The business, which ranks not only as Europes largest recycler of waste polythene products but also as a global supplier of high performance agricultural films and a leading European supplier of packaging for food and other products, has been included on the  FTSE4Good Index Series for the tenth consecutive year.

Launched in 2001 by leading global index provider FTSE Group, the FTSE4Good Index Series was designed to measure the performance of companies that meet globally recognised corporate responsibility standards, and to facilitate investment in those companies. In order to provide institutional investors with an in-depth understanding of a business commitment to strong environmental, social and corporate governance practices, it assesses companies against stringent and internationally recognised standards in five key areas:

Working towards environmental sustainability

Up-holding and supporting universal human rights

Ensuring good supply chain labour standards

Countering bribery

Mitigating and adapting to climate change.

As a testament to BPIs long established and deep seated CSR policies, it has been awarded a certificate of inclusion for every year since the Indexs introduction.

Commenting on BPIs continued certification, John Langland, Chief Executive Officer at BPI said: BPI is committed to offering its customers high quality, innovative solutions but not at any cost. We firmly believe that the way we conduct our business is every bit as important as the products we produce.

He continues: I speak on behalf of the whole of BPI when I say that we are especially proud to have been included in the FTSE4Good Index Series for the tenth consecutive year. It serves as independent verification of our ongoing and collective commitment to operating in a sustainable and socially responsible manner.
