The company's enthusiasm for, and particular emphasis on, totally degradable plastics derives from the significant increase in interest in the environment in general and, in particular, on the adverse effects of the durability of traditional plastics and the problems caused by plastic litter.
The pressure towards the use of degradable plastics is simultaneously coming from Governments who in some cases are introducing législation, from Companies who are pursuing genuine Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) objectives, and from Consumers who understand their responsibilities towards the environment, and who are providing those companies who offer degradable plastics with a real marketing benefit.
Action has been taken by a number of Governments around the world to encourage a move to degradable plastic.
Symphony's degradable finished products and pro-degradant additives are sold under the d2w® trademark, which is registered in the EU, the US, and other countries worldwide.
