Sustainability is in our DNA


Sustainability is more than the products and materials we use. It’s a value system that impacts everything we do. At Pregis, we don’t just reduce, reuse and recycle - we use our position to lead the way to a circular economy that puts people and the planet first.

As a leader in protective packaging solutions, it’s our mission to help create the circular economy that will protect the planet, preserve our resources, and "Inspyre" change.

For more than 50 years, we have stayed focused and true to our values.

“At Pregis, our mission is to Protect, Preserve and Inspyre.

Our 2030 goals represent a bold plan to lead the industry into a more sustainable future, by focusing our employees, organization, and customers on achieving tangible, meaningful sustainability goals.

Carbon neutrality is our north star and all initiatives will move us in this direction.

The next 10 years will be an accelerated period of transformation for our company, industry, and the world we share."

- Kevin Baudhuin, President & CEO

Our 2030 Goals

The Pregis 2030 mission is a bold plan to harness our passion for sustainability into concrete action — real, measurable goals; close cooperation with our partners, vendors and customers, and an open invitation for like-minded companies and individuals to join us in doing better.

2030 is the evolution of the way we do business, of the way we use resources, and the way we engage our customers and suppliers. Our journey to 2030 is our part to protect and preserve our planet for generations to come, and we invite all of our partners, customers, and distributors to take it with us.

Working hand in hand with our network and forming new alliances, by the year 2030, Pregis will:

Eliminate 1 million reshipments

Reships are one of the biggest sources of waste, cost, and disappointment for your profits, your customers, and the planet. By protecting packages appropriately and eliminating the need for replacement deliveries, we can exponentially decrease paper and plastic waste, consumption of resources, and greenhouse gas emissions. This foundational KPI is tied to every other goal in our 2030 mission, and will be driven by our customers implementing Pregis solutions in their fulfillment operations.

Reduce our greenhouse gas emissions intensity by 25%

This is the equivalent of 4.5 million cars’ worth of CO2 emissions removed from our supply chain through innovations in processes, practices and materials. Focusing on emission reduction forces Pregis to confront and rethink every step along the product journey. This includes ideation and innovation to what happens to it after it’s used. The goal is better outcomes for our people, the planet and our partners.

Pregis Europe will lower its carbon footprint by 20% by 2025.

As signatories of The Climate Pledge, Pregis will achieve net-zero annual carbon emissions by 2040.

Save 15 million new trees from harvest

Sustainability starts with material choice. Companies are responsible for the entire life cycle of their products, and that means working backward and upstream to ensure that suppliers are just as committed to sustainability as Pregis. By committing to only using ethical, sustainable suppliers, Pregis is choosing to lead sustainability efforts globally. For every ton of paper customers order from our Easypack catalog, we save 17 trees from harvest.

recycle-sign.png

Make 100% of Pregis products recyclable, reusable, or with a minimum 30% reduced reliance on new fossil-based ingredients

Pregis is committed to proactive, not reactive, innovation. We think about the products our partners will need in 10 years and beyond to stay ahead of the curve and offer more sustainable packaging options than any of our competitors. Focusing on the future ensures our partners are prepared for legislative and regulatory challenges coming down the road and helps them connect with what their customers need before they need it.

Pregis Europe will incorporate 70% recycled or bio-based materials into European products by 2025 based on a weighted average across all materials. By 2030, Pregis Europe will incorporate 100% recycled or bio-based resources into the European product portfolio based on a weighted average across all materials.

reduce.png

Achieve 100% product and process waste reduction at Pregis facilities globally

Reducing waste by 100% will require a radical effort from everyone at Pregis, but the work will orient us towards sustainability at every level and across every process. Pregis is committed to finding innovative ways to reduce the amount of waste generated at its facilities and find new ways to convert post-industrial waste into new products that fulfill our sustainability mission. This means a wider selection of products that meet sustainability goals.

invest.png

Invest $15 million in circular, scalable, and sustainable material, process, and waste solutions globally

Sustainability isn’t just our dream. It’s a fully-funded Pregis action plan. This funding will be used to identify the best new sustainability technologies and approaches and to invest in them for a bigger impact — not later, but now. Pregis celebrates the success of the companies and organizations it invests in and spotlights the impact they’re having.

positive-vote.png

Make a positive impact on 25 million lives

Sustainability and corporate responsibility aren’t important because it makes for good taglines or marketing — but instead because it helps real people. Pregis is making this effort because we believe that everything we do needs to be about people first. Helping others gives Pregis purpose. Reaching this goal requires a community of like-minded companies, organizations and consumers who want to join Pregis on this journey.

Sustainability & CSR

We take a holistic approach to making the world a better place. Being a good corporate citizen isn’t just creating eco-friendly packaging, reducing waste, or giving to charity — it’s about doing it all, and empowering our customers to do the same. Much of our good work is driven by the passion of our employees, themselves.

Through partnerships and in collaboration with groups like CEFLEX and Alliance to End Plastic Waste, we’re contributing our supply chain expertise to co-create a circular economy. Our Easypack portfolio has been certified as eco-friendly by organizations like Forest Stewardship Council. And sales from a portion of our catalog benefits charity organizations around the world.


 

 

Giving Back to #InspyreChange

Our employees support a variety of initiatives and charities like the Hunger Task Force and Uzima Clean Water Mission.

For every sale of Inspyre packaging, Pregis makes a donation to Uzima, a non-profit that provides water filters to people without access to clean drinking water. Customers will receive the product they have purchased wrapped in water-blue inflatable cushioning. An accompanying insert explains how the brand is helping to fight water insecurities, an issue that impacts nearly one billion people across the globe.
