In every facet of our business, we look to science, global standards, and credible data to help inform our decisions and direction. And while the definition of “sustainable packaging” can vary greatly depending on individual needs and perspectives, we take a life cycle approach.
We believe it is critically important to go beyond the traditional focus on end of life to include all possible impacts of a package, from sourcing and manufacturing through design, use, transportation, and recovery.

The path to sustainability can look different to practically anyone, based on where you are and what's most important to you.
