ProAmpac Facility Receives Sustainability Carbon Certification


Cincinnati, Ohio-based ProAmpac, a global flexible packaging company, announced its Rocky Mount, Virginia, facility has received the International Sustainability Carbon Certification Plus.

It is a global sustainability certification system that supports the tracking of chemically recycled and bio-based polymers through the supply chain.

“The ISCC Plus certification, coupled with our ProActive Sustainability product offering, underscores ProAmpac’s commitment to helping brand owners and retailers meet their sustainability goals,” states Chad Murdock, president of its film and fiber division.

ProAmpac’s facility has film extrusion expertise. Processing conventional product formulas along with chemically recycled and bio-based alternative materials, the facility provides sustainable optionality for customers.

In addition, chemically recycled polymers can further reduce the use of virgin materials and are the only feedstock derived from post-consumer waste with the same purity and quality as virgin plastics available for food packaging.

“As more chemically recycled content becomes available and consumers better understand the sustainability benefits of the material, the ISCC Plus badge will become an important packaging differentiator,” said Jed Chubb, director of product development and blown film for ProAmpac. “ProAmpac is excited to couple our blown-film expertise with ISCC Plus certification, delivering more sustainable flexible packaging to market faster for our customers.”

Rocky Mount is ProAmpac’s second facility to earn ISCC Plus. The company’s Grimsby, U.K., location received certification in 2021.
