Global Packaging and Sustainability

Global Packaging makes a daily effort to conserve energy and eliminate waste in order to minimize the impact Global has on the environment, as well as to reduce costs for customers. Our commitment to sustainability is to implement, manage, and maintain sustainable practices that are clear, measurable, and tailored to our customers’ specific needs. We’re proud to operate a truly lean environment that benefits both our environment and our customers.

Sustainability at Every Level

We never miss out on an opportunity to increase our sustainability efforts, practicing conservation on every level of our organization. We use renewable energy sources whenever we can and track our consumption to look for areas where we can further minimize our energy use. We recycle many of the materials we use and manufacture, such as resin, film, paper, cardboard, ink and ink cartridges, and solvents, just to name a few. In addition, Global Packaging has joined forces with our suppliers to minimize packaging, recycle materials, and reuse generic accutane online supply chain components. We also collaborate with our customers on new sustainability initiatives.

Other examples of our sustainability efforts are:

  • Use of new energy efficient equipment
  • Re-pelletizing polyethylene
  • Our Plastic Pallet Program, and
  • Our Health & Wellness programs.
