Business Area: Recyclable Materials; Environmental Sustainability
Established: 2005

Location: High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, UK

Aquapak Polymers Ltd (“Aquapak”) has developed a ground-breaking specially formulated polymer for use in thin film packaging. This innovative technology offers greater functionality than many regular plastics in terms of strength and durability in a wide variety of everyday applications. Additionally, the polymer is 100% fully biodegradable, compostable and recyclable and has excellent ecological credentials in end-of-life processing. The new polymer process has strong potential. The base materials are all FDAapproved and hence the product is suitable for food packaging. With the rapid market growth of pouches for product portioning, the product can replace a significant amount of nonrecoverable plastic packaging. Aquapak can therefore make a strong and immediate contribution to changing the way plastics are used in certain global sectors such as food waste, hospital hygiene, electronics, clothing and food packaging, as well as in multiple niche applications.

Established: 1998

Location: London, UK

Golden Lane Housing Ltd (GLH) is a leading national housing provider for people with learning disabilities. Mencap established it as an independent registered charity in 1998 in response to the huge need for housing for people with a learning disability. Its mission is to provide quality homes around which people with learning disabilities can build their lives. To achieve this, all properties benefit from investment to meet GLH’s standards and tenants are provided with specialist housing management, repairs and maintenance support to ensure they can sustain their tenancy. The majority of GLH tenants have a moderate to severe learning disability and have substantial support needs. Most tenants’ rent is paid directly by the local authority. Tenants benefit from having security of tenure, safe and appropriately adapted accommodation that is well-maintained and situated in a good location. This, combined with specialist support, enables tenants to have greater independence and control over their lives. It also leads to improved physical and mental health, greater safety, better relationships and opportunities to integrate into their local community.
