“Rethink Responsibly” highlights company’s materials diversity-driven approach to optimizing sustainability.
Wayne, PA – TekniPlex Consumer Products, a globally integrated provider of innovative solutions through materials science and manufacturing technologies, will host a presentation highlighting its materials science-based approach to sustainability at Pack Expo in Chicago. On Sunday, October 23 at 3:00 p.m., on Innovation Stage 1 (Stand N4560), the company will present Rethink Responsibly, which discusses a variety of challenges surrounding one of packaging’s most complex, all-encompassing topics.
“Rethink Responsibly” has become a mindset for TekniPlex. The half-hour presentation will provide an overview of this concept, which commits to continually considering what it means to provide responsible solutions to customers, their consumers, and the planet. The approach reflects the company’s promise to perpetual progress across materials science design innovation, supply chain and operational efficiencies, materials reduction, closed loop manufacturing, and promotion of bio-based and post-consumer recycled (PCR) resins, among other areas relevant to sustainability.
The presentation will be delivered by a pair of executives well versed in the sustainability space. As TekniPlex’s Senior Vice President of Global Innovation, Oscar Martin works with cross-functional teams, executive leaders, and customers to drive innovation strategy and long-term growth.
Martin’s co-presenter, Vice President of Sales Greg Ambrogi, steers efforts to create sustainable solutions that reduce environmental impact while maximizing manufacturability, performance, and end-user experiences.
The presentation also will introduce an expanded product line that TekniPlex Consumer Products is debuting at Pack Expo. The company’s GeoPack portfolio comprises a broad spectrum of product families meeting defined criteria for sustainability. These criteria comprise varying combinations of materials science sustainability’s “4 Rs” – reduce, recycle, reuse and renew – including biodegradable or compostable materials, post-consumer recycled content, recyclability, renewable substrates, and legislation compliance. The goal is to deliver solutions tailored toward customers’ sustainability metrics, including providing information on specific products’ environmental impact.
