What is Sustainability in Folding Carton Packaging?

What is Sustainability in Folding Carton Packaging?

With the environmentally-conscious movement rapidly growing and gaining more relevance on a global scale, interest in sustainable options has risen dramatically across various industries. For Netpak, sustainability means embracing the responsibility our manufacturing process has on the environment and our surroundings. We are fiercely proud to position ourselves as market leaders offering various “eco-friendly” sustainable packaging options; however, our commitment does not end at simply transitioning towards sustainable packaging.


As an industry leader in folding carton packaging, Netpak has an extensive selection of paperboard suitable for your desired application. From Solid Bleach Sulphate (SBS) to Coated Recycled Board (CRB) and Corrugated Fiberboard (Microflute), our paperboard selection is composed of recycled fiber and meets market criteria for both performance and cost. In fact, CRB paperboard is made from 100% recycled fiber, as well as our Folding Box Board (FBB) which is recognized as being made from renewable material and for its recyclability. Our procurement team is composed of experts in paperboard selection and can help you select the right paperboard for your project that fits all your sustainability and eco-friendly requirements.

Use of eco-responsible resources

To further our sustainability efforts, Netpak uses a variety of odourless, water-based inks glues that are also Health Canada and FDA approved for boxed food use. These types of carefully formulated inks and glues offer superior performance and significantly optimize the recyclability of a product as well as its overall life cycle.

Netpak has also implemented various controls and procedures to ensure our team operates in the most efficient manner possible. These processes help reduce our energy consumption, as well as optimize time and resources. We also maximize our sustainability efforts by recycling EVERY small bit of paper that is unused in our production process in order to reduce our overall excess-material waste. Our goal is to work towards a ZERO LANDFILL policy.

Certifications and our Responsibility

We have made a commitment to our business and our clients by offering and exploring the most innovative sustainability-advanced options and focusing our efforts on being leaders of the industry. By offering recyclable boards, reducing and optimizing energy consumption, Netpak is proud to have received numerous eco-responsible certifications from the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI), the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) and the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).

To maintain these highly-recognized eco-credentials and designations on a continuous basis, we offer our clients “green” packaging options and operate in the most effective manner. We undergo annual rigorous environmental audits of our facility, production line and processes that confirm our operations meet the most stringent industry objectives and offer our customers options that minimize environmental impact across the board.
