  • Graham Packaging Company commits to 100% reusable, recyclable or compostable packaging by 2025

    Graham Packaging Company, an industry-leading solutions provider in the design and manufacturing of innovative and sustainable packaging solutions, recently signed the Ellen MacArthur Foundation New Plastics Economy Global Commitment. The agreement states that by 2025 100% of its plastic packaging can be reused, recycled or composted. Graham Packaging joins hundreds of the world’s leading brands that also signed this pledge.

    “Since its founding nearly five decades ago, Graham Packaging has been dedicated to the design and manufacturing of environmentally friendly plastic packaging solutions,” said Tracee Reeves, head of sustainability and chief general counsel, Graham Packaging. “This new commitment will bring together all of our resources to reduce global waste and help our customers reach their sustainability goals.”

    The New Plastics Economy Global Commitment focuses on three actions to achieve a circular economy for plastic to ensure it never becomes waste. They include:
    • Eliminating problematic or unnecessary plastic packaging and moving from single-use to reusable packaging models
    • Ensuring 100% of plastic packaging can be easily and safely reused, recycled or composted by 2025
    • Circulating the plastic produced by significantly increasing the amount of plastics reused or recycled and made into new packaging or products

    The Graham Packaging Global Sustainability Committee will lead the charge in helping the company reach these goals. Graham Packaging currently uses more than 100 million pounds of PCR annually. The Graham Recycling Center – one of the largest of its kind in the northeast – recycles 50 million pounds or approximately 378 million plastic containers, from curbside recycling programs each year.
