COP28 Leadership Interview: Albaad’s Sustainability in Wet Wipes

 

“We are dedicated to reimagining wet wipes and their production processes to align with nature-friendly practices.”

Recently, Jacob Heen, CEO of Albaad, took the spotlight during a COP28 Leadership Interview at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Dubai to represent the globally recognized wet wipes manufacturer. 

With 35 years of industry experience and as the largest producer of wet wipes in Europe, Albaad has emerged as a trailblazer, prioritizing sustainability and innovation in the production of high-quality, eco-friendly solutions that prioritize both people’s wellbeing and the planet.

 

Responsibility through market position

The Israel-based company’s position as one of the world’s top three manufacturers of wet wipes, feminine hygiene and hygiene products and the market leader in Europe puts it at the forefront of sustainability. These indispensable products, often considered harmful to the environment, offer a lot of scope for ecological improvements in the production process and the materials used. For this reason, Albaad relies on various small and large actions to encourage innovation and find creative solutions that are in line with sustainability goals. The company’s diverse production footprint all over Europe enables it to be close to its customers and be efficient in the supply chain.

 

Investments for measurable success

Thanks to its stable economic development, Albaad is able to continue investing in developed technologies such as the establishment of a new nonwoven production line in the southern part of Israel, that will manufacture nonwovens made of non-plastic, plant-based components. Albaad is also expanding its operations near markets to promote efficient operations and reduce environmental impact through sustainable product development.

Switching to renewable energy sources and installing solar panels in Albaad’s production facilities are also ways to reduce their carbon footprint. The company’s sustainability strategy and operation is continuously reviewed and refined based on regulatory changes, changing market conditions, and new opportunities.

Albaad, as a private label wipes manufacturer, is committed to sustainable digitalization, as they move more towards the use of digital tools and processes over manual, thereby better controlling their impact on the environment. 

 

Ambitious resource consumption targets

To further develop its own efforts for the environment, Albaad has set itself controllable targets covering greenhouse gas emissions as well as water consumption and waste production: Albaad commits to reducing absolute scope 1 and 2 GHG (greenhouse gasses) emissions by 25% by 2030 from a 2020 base year. Albaad also commits to reducing absolute scope 3 GHG emissions from purchased goods and services, capital goods, upstream transportation and distribution, employee commuting, downstream transportation and distribution, and end-of-life treatment of sold products 25% within the same timeframe.

 

Steady course

“Climate action is important for us as a company, because it helps us stay compliant with changing and evolving regulations, meet changing consumer demands, ensure supply chain resilience, reduce cost, better access to capital, secure long term viability, foster innovation and mitigate legal and liability risk“, emphasizes Jacob Heen. Albaad, as a leading wet wipes manufacturer, plans to continue to be part of a system that shares the same environmental values and, in choosing its suppliers, focuses on those that have a particularly high environmental awareness.

Our Guide to Private Label Wet Wipes

We’ll tell you everything you need to know about private label wet wipes, from what they are to what they can do for you. 

What does “private label” mean?

A private label product is a product supplied by a third-party manufacturer and sold under another company’s brand. Let’s say you have a product you want to sell. In this case, wet wipes. You need someone else to manufacture the product for you, but you want your own company’s branding on it. This is where finding a private label wipes manufacturer is important; they supply the exact product you want with your company branding, and you go on to sell them. You control everything about the wet wipes, from its size and weight to how it’s packaged. As far as consumers are concerned, those wet wipes are your own brand wet wipes. 

How does this help you?

There are many advantages to producing private label products, from making sure that your product is exactly what you envisioned to making sure the price is right and creating the perfect branding. Here’s the breakdown of why private label is the way to go: 

Customization:

You get to customize your wet wipes to perfectly match customer demand and make sure they’re exactly what you want. There’s so much to consider when you’re producing your own wet wipes, from their size, shape, weight, ingredients, fragrance, and packaging. These are all factors you take into account and are able to control. 

Maximize Your Profits: 

You get to decide how much you want to spend on wet wipes production to ensure that you’re able to maximize your profits. Balancing quality with good pricing makes for very happy customers, and you’ll come out on top. 

Branding:

If you sell products that have the manufacturer’s branding, your customers will develop loyalty to the manufacturer, not to you. The biggest advantage of private label products is that their packaging has your own name and branding. You can build true customer relationships and have people coming back for more because it’s your company. 

Where should you go to manufacture private label wet wipes? 

The supplier you choose is extremely important. You’re trusting them to supply you with the product of your dreams at the best price and to deliver what your customers want, all while holding by regulations of the countries you’ll be distributing in and ensuring the highest quality.

  • Packaging:

    Something you’ll want to consider when you’re thinking about your wet wipe is how you’ll want to customize its packaging.

Additionally, you want your packaging to look good and to match the vision you had in your head.

These are the kinds of factors we take into consideration when we’re creating your product. Because we’re a vertical manufacturer, we have the ability to customize every step of the process according to your exact needs.

We know exactly what it takes to make your dream wet wipe. 


  • Communication with your manufacturer:

Our client relationships are based on trust, which is the most important factor when it comes to creating the item you really need.

We have experience customizing your wet wipes and their distribution based on where in the world you want to distribute your product. Reaching your audience can’t happen if you don’t have a quick, efficient, and widespread way to do so. This is another area where we can lift the burden from your shoulders.
