Our sustainability vision is to innovate sustainable choices for our customers, operate responsibly, and invest in our people and communities.
The Novolex sustainability vision is built upon three pillars: our products, our operations and our people. Each is critically important to our growth and future as a business. These pillars form the foundation of our company-wide commitment to sustainability, helping us achieve our ambitious goals through our wide-ranging initiatives.View 2020 Report
Using recycled and renewable materials and designing for recycling and composting
Reducing energy use, minimizing waste and promoting recycling
Supporting the well-being of more than 10,000 employee families and their communities
As noted in our third annual Novolex Sustainability Report, we continue to be guided by our vision as well as widely accepted sustainability reporting standards. These include the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) disclosure framework and the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) framework. Our report features some important disclosure topics and accounting metrics, including an index of GRI criteria met by Novolex. In future reports, we will continue to prioritize reporting disclosures based on GRI and SASB standards, as well any additional information that could be helpful based on the current business environment. For feedback on the report or any questions, please contact Sustainability@Novolex.com.
Novolex supports science- and fact-based public policies that foster the circular economy, improve infrastructure, educate consumers and facilitate sustainable development within our communities. We engage with a spectrum of stakeholders to promote these objectives and more. In partnership with communities, policymakers, NGOs, the packaging industry and our customers, we work towards developing solutions that will enable the responsible manufacture, use and disposal of our products. Novolex looks forward to helping to lead, innovate and participate in the policies and actions that will build the new circular economy which can include the creation of additional infrastructure that facilitates the use of recyclable and compostable products.
