“Many of our customers around the world are moving from setting ambitious sustainability goals to taking meaningful action,” said
A path toward achieving sustainability goals
Coupled with its expertise in safety and regulatory compliance, Berry proposes tailored solutions to every customer goal and supports the research and development of practical and economic end-of-life scenarios for products. Berry’s Life Cycle Assessment tool helps companies estimate and quantify the environmental impact of various initiatives to prioritize actions toward achieving sustainable packaging goals.
Compared to alternative packaging materials like paper, metal, or glass, recycled plastic typically results in lower energy use, as well as less waste generated. And the increased use of bio-based products made from renewable resources like sugarcane can further reduce the
Collaboration is key
Lack of recycling infrastructure is one of the most significant barriers to accessing enough recycled and bio-based renewable materials to deliver on ambitious sustainable packaging goals. Berry is actively engaged in multiple global infrastructure investments, and partners with organizations critical to ending plastic waste in various ways, including:
Signing on to the
Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s New Plastics Economy Global Commitment to change how plastic is produced, used, and reused.
Taking on a leadership role with the Alliance to End
Plastic Wasteand The Recycling Partnershipto support education and infrastructure investments needed to increase the use of recycled content and improve the collection and recyclability of plastic waste.
Joining the World Wildlife Fund’s
Bioplastic Feedstock Alliance(BFA) to support the responsible development and sourcing of plastics made from plant material.
“Biobased plastic—if sourced responsibly—can play an essential role in building circularity by decoupling from fossil fuels to address our new plastic needs,” said
