View 2022 Report

The Novolex vision for sustainability is to innovate more sustainable choices for our customers, operate responsibly, and invest in our people and communities.

Reporting on Our Progress

The Novolex sustainability vision rests on three pillars – Products, Operations, and People and Communities. These pillars and their supporting key performance indicators (KPIs) serve to advance the commitments embodied in our Sustainability Policy to achieve environmental, social and governance (ESG) goals. Our annual sustainability reports promote the transparency of our initiatives across each pillar by highlighting on-going projects and new achievements.

New in our 2022 report is a commitment to double recycling of post-consumer films at the company’s recycling facility North Vernon, Indiana by 2024 to advance the circularity of our products. Additionally, we established a new metric focuses on reporting total waste generated in operations. These new metrics and other disclosures continue to align with widely recognized reporting frameworks developed by the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) and the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).

Supporting Customers

Novolex partners with our customers to meet their sustainability goals by offering choice, innovation and sustainability. Our commitment to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 30% per ton of production by 2030 supports customer climate goals. Our broad selection of products made with certified, bio-based and recycled materials can help reduce the environmental footprint of packaging. Many Novolex products are recyclable, compostable or can be reused. We also support customers’ ability to quantify emissions, conducting product carbon footprint (PCF) analyses that can inform purchasing decisions that advance climate goals.

Partnerships and Collaboration

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 policymakers, NGOs, others in the packaging industry, and our customers we work towards developing solutions that will foster the responsible manufacture, use and disposal of our products. Novolex looks forward to helping lead, innovate, and participate in policy development and implementation that will build the new circular economy including construction of additional infrastructure for recycling and composting.
