Packsize Statement on Sustainability
Packsize recognizes its role and responsibility in protecting and improving the state of the environment for future generations.
That's why Packsize is committed to smarter packaging for a healthier planet. Smarter packaging means less material needed to ship consumer goods via dimensionally optimized delivery services that use less fuel, reducing the overall carbon footprint of this process. By focusing on the use of resources through minimization, reuse, and renewal, we can help build a regenerative community that increases resource productivity and improves product design, while earning the reciprocal benefit of greater customer satisfaction.
In essence, what’s good for the planet is also good for the company—ours and yours.
All packsize z-Fold™ is made from responsibly managed, renewable resources, and is supplied by certified fiber sourcing programs such as Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI) and the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
According to SFI, the forest products industry plants 1.7 million new trees every day, contributing to the long-term viability of North American forests, preserving wildlife habitats, sequestering carbon dioxide and offsetting greenhouse gas emissions.
Renewable Energy Sources
Packsize powers its headquarters in Salt Lake City, Utah and its factory in Enköping, Sweden with renewable energy sources, including wind, water, and solar, as well as nuclear generation in Sweden.
PackLab in Salt Lake City, an On Demand Packaging® demonstration center, uses a solar panel system that generates 31,110 watts of electricity. Through a net metering agreement with Rocky Mountain Power, any surplus energy produced will be placed into the city’s energy grid.
Packsize discourages the use of non-renewable resources in its daily operation and advocates the reduction, re-use, and recycling of all paper, plastic, and aluminum material across the entire organization.
Packsize operates an expanding fleet of alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles to reduce emissions.
When Packsize engineers, service technicians, and area sales managers visit a customer’s facility, they produce 85 percent fewer smog forming emissions than the average visitor.
