Crownhill Packaging joins the Paper & Paperboard Packaging Environmental Council

We’re proud to announce we’ve joined The Paper & Paperboard Packaging Environmental Council (PPEC) in Canada. Membership in this esteemed organization allows Crownhill Packaging an opportunity to contribute to the reputation and future of our industry.

The PPEC is a representative body that promotes the environmental, social and economic stability of the paper packaging industry in Canada. It’s quite unique when compared to other organizations in the packaging industry, as rather than focusing on every issue its partners face, the PPEC focuses solely on environmental and sustainability concerns.

Representing over 90% of the packaging mills and packaging converters in Canada, the PPEC operates under one voice to successfully lobby governmental bodies and agencies, and to network and coordinate with other industry-related organizations. Its forward-thinking goals, experienced representatives and committed membership allows the PPEC to develop and implement practical solutions to environmentally related issues the industry faces.

Since its founding in 1990, the PPEC has built up an enviable track record of success. In its three decades of existence, several North American and global achievements have been attributed to its pursuit of responsible and sustainable eco-friendly solutions.

These achievements include pioneering the techniques of composting old or waxed corrugated board in regions that are too far from recycling mills for processing to be considered financially viable. And becoming the world’s first paper packaging organization whose entire mill membership participates in the third-party certified international “chain-of-custody” standard, which involves the responsible sourcing of virgin or recycled materials.

Crownhill Packaging is proud to join the Paper & Paperboard Packaging Environmental Council, and we look forward to sharing our experiences with, and learning from, our fellow members in this purposeful council. As a full-service custom packaging provider, we’re committed to developing packaging solutions that can be both sustainable and successful for all involved.

We’d also like to thank our vice president, Rodney Taylor, for representing us with the PPEC. You can read more about this new opportunity in our full press release.
