Accredo Packaging, a leader in sustainable food and drink packaging solutions, is committed to achieving robust sustainability goals for its North American operations by 2025. The company’s innovative approach aims to offer more sustainable materials and technologies compared to conventional packaging, with new milestones targeted annually.

Following strategic leadership hires, the company’s new sustainability goals reaffirm its commitment to sustainable operating principles. Accredo Packaging has already secured LEED® Silver certifications in Sugar Land and Vietnam, making it the believed first flexible packaging manufacturer in these regions to achieve such certifications. These achievements highlight the company’s longstanding dedication to aggressive sustainability targets.

Director of Sustainability, Trei Johnson, emphasizes, “Our accomplishments, including the adoption of 100% wind-generated electricity at our Texas facility, serve as cornerstones for our ambitious 2025 objectives. These achievements mirror our unwavering dedication to our customers and our commitment to innovation in sustainable food and drink packaging.”

Accredo Packaging’s 2025 goals aim to position the company as a leader in sustainable practices within the flexible packaging industry. These goals are based on a 2021 third-party footprint analysis, serving as the baseline.

Reducing Waste to Landfill by 15% by 2025

Accredo aims to achieve low waste-to-landfill status by enhancing recycling programs and minimizing waste generation, beginning with the diversion of at least 255 tons of waste to landfill in 2025.

Reducing Carbon Footprint by 15% in Scope 1 and 2 by 2025

In addition to Accredo Packaging’s current 100% Wind Electricity commitment, the company aims to further reduce its carbon footprint by adopting additional renewable energy sources and optimizing manufacturing processes for greater energy efficiency, resulting in at least 72 MT of emissions diverted from the atmosphere* by 2025.

Recycled Content Incorporation Increased by 15% by 2025

The company will use greater amounts of Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) content, further enabling the circular economy. Accredo’s goal is to use more recycled content over time. The company’s dedication to sustainability and responsible corporate citizenship highlights its role as a leader in the industry. These goals, paired with the AccredoFlex platform of more sustainable offerings, showcase the company’s commitment to a more sustainable future.
