At the Consumer Level Reducing the environmental impact of our packaging

The interconnected public concerns of climate change and post-consumer waste have become a focus for both businesses and consumers. As one of Thailand’s leading consumer product manufacturers, OSOTSPA recognizes the responsibility we have in promoting a circular economy and sustainability in packaging.

With the aim to create systemic change, OSOTSPA’s sustainable packaging strategy centers on pragmatic approaches; these range from how our packages are designed and produced to how packaging waste is recycled.

Our Sustainable Packaging Strategies

Performance Highlights

To achieve our Sustainable Packaging goals and stay in line with Thailand’s Bio-Circular-Green Economy (BCG) model action plan for 2021-2027, OSOTSPA has evolved our packaging across product groups to utilize a variety of practices including recyclable design, weight reduction, and recyclable material usage. These are all aimed at reducing environmental impact while maintaining the same quality.

Packaging Weight Reduction

OSOTSPA has improved its glass bottle packaging to reduce glass bottle weight while maintaining quality. This was implemented previously in Beverages across multiple products. In 2023, the company successfully implemented process improvements to reduce the weight of glass bottles for personal care products, specifically for TWELVE PLUS/EXIT Roll On products in the 25 ml and 45 ml sizes.

OSOTSPA conducted R&D in packaging design, aiming to minimize plastic usage across a range of products. This initiative included both existing and new items

Recycling Solutions in Our Production

Osotspa does not shy from being accountable in terms of post-consumer waste management. This can be seen in our advanced recycling center in Saraburi province which contributes to the reduction and recycling of waste by way of resource optimization. With an end goal to promote sustainable consumption and production, we at Osotspa never stop seeking ways to enhance the efficiency of our recycling center and increase the amount of local cullet used in our glass bottle production.
