NOVOLEX™ employees create sustainable value through three paths:
Product Design Sustainability Path—Sustainability is embedded in our products through: quality manufacturing; innovation; recycling; recycled content; and compostable offerings. From simple lifecycle improvements such as down gauging excess packaging to complicated recycling processes we continually look at our product designs and materials. Five of the key sustainable design strategies we use are:
Sustainable Education and Research Path—NOVOLEX™ understands that sustainability includes customer and consumer education as well as understanding and embracing new technologies. NOVOLEX™ is an active member of trade associations and programs that educate consumers about packaging reduction, recycling, composting and recycled content. We also take part in programs that improve our understanding and sustainable practices as well as provide third party certification of our products. Some of our partnerships include: Environmental Defense Fund Climate Corps Fellowship Sponsor; Sustainable Packaging Coalition How2Recycle.info program; Forest Stewardship Council™; Rain Forest Alliance; Biodegradable Products Institute; The Institute for Scrap Recycling Industries; The Society of the Plastics Industry; The American Progressive Bag Alliance; A Bags Life program; and others
Sustainable Expert Path—While every employee at NOVOLEX™ is committed to sustainability, we also support full time sustainability experts that research and implement sustainability innovations; conduct community outreach and education; participate in academic and trade association research; work with customers to improve their sustainable product portfolio; assess our sustainability portfolio and develop paths toward increasing our own sustainability at NOVOLEX™.
