Our Role In Sustainability

Our Role In Sustainability body

Our role is to contribute towards a sustainable packaging systems evolution. We wish to support customers at all stages of their transformation journey to environmental sustainability. Whether starting with stepping stones in design, developing new sustainable products for a circular economy, advocating for waste systems legislation, or regenerating the communities and ecosystems that our packaging impacts.

Product Integrity

Product Integrity body

To ensure our legacy, the integrity of the products we create is paramount for establishing new packaging systems. We achieve this through rigorous questioning, research and testing of our supply chain sources and processes. We become a trusted resource for our packaging community when we are involved and understand our packaging system as a whole.

Our Sustainable Products

Our Sustainable Products body

We are happy to support your sustainable packaging journey, no matter which circumstances you are working from. Are you looking into lightweighting from a rigid package to a flexible solution? Maybe you would like us to analyze your conventional packaging design to determine whether it’s over-engineered?

Do responsibly managed forest inputs (FSC certified label stock) align with your company values? Perhaps Post-Consumer Waste (PCW) content makes more sense in moving towards keeping plastics in a circular economy?

For companies looking to meet additional sustainability targets, we have a full line-up of 100% recyclable and 100% compostable label and packaging stock options. Want to legally advertise that your product is compostable? We have systems in place to get your packaging industrial or home compostable certified!

Still not seeing what you’re looking for? We are constantly trialling new products to introduce to the market. We want to co-create groundbreaking products with companies like you and evolve our industry!

Co-Create

Co-Create body

Our aim is to build a developmental platform for employees, suppliers, customers and organizations to co-create towards a common destiny: a sustainable packaging systems evolution. We need all hands on deck if we are to make true and lasting change. Therefore, we are open to co-creating beyond products. This means developing innovative practices and services which positively impact our ecosystems and entire packaging community.

Advocacy

Advocacy body

We are no stranger to sustainable packaging system challenges that companies, consumers, and local governments have/will continue to face. Our government policies, materials recovery facilities and packaging systems will take time to evolve and catch up with our product advancements. In the meantime, we need packaging stewards to join us on this journey forward until we achieve sustainable packaging systems evolution.

Advocacy requires a commitment to a newer, less established packaging system, resiliency to roadblocks and embracing challenges, engaging your local community and understanding where your products come from and where they end up.

Currently, our journey has brought us to examine our own supply chain integrity and speak with local municipalities about our involvement in evolving local waste systems.

Communities and Ecosystems

Communities and Ecosystems body

We cultivate genuine relationships with our suppliers, contractors and customers; we treat each other like family. We wish to extend our family beyond our homes, beyond the walls of our facility and into our packaging community.

We are eager to discover the families connected to our packaging system and how to engage with them in a developmental way. By doing so, we simultaneously become aware of the ecosystems from which our resources are extracted.

In order to ensure the health of our family’s future, we must consider the health of our ecosystems. The rate we extract resources is not sustainable when there are finite resources involved.

Our aim is to look beyond the standard of environmental sustainability and discover how we can create packaging that regenerates our communities and ecosystems.
