Sonoco Flexible Packaging receives ISCC PLUS certification

May 16, 2024  By P&PC Staff


Sonoco Products Company announced that its Sonoco Flexible Packaging has received ISCC PLUS certification from the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification System within their EnviroFlex Recycled Content portfolio.

This certification brings third party validation of resin sourcing practices at Sonoco’s Morristown, Tennessee facility. With this certification, Sonoco continues to build credibility in high-performing laminations containing recycled materials, says the company.

The ISCC PLUS certification is a voluntary commitment to increase transparency and to ensure the traceability of recycled material throughout the entire supply chain via mass balance. With this certification, Sonoco can reportedly provide customers with verifiable materials that contribute to the circular economy, help them meet sustainability commitments, and more broadly support expansion of the recycling infrastructure.

The EnviroFlex Recycled Content line of packaging is a portfolio of custom oxygen, moisture and grease barriers, ideal for a broad range of applications. This line is intended to bring circular practices to flexible packaging.

“As a Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) chain of custody certified facility, the Morristown operations bring extensive knowledge for validating source materials,” said Laura Buen Abad, vice-president of technology and marketing. “Achieving ISCC PLUS certification within our EnviroFlex Recycled Content portfolio showcases our commitment to bringing circularity to flexible packaging.”
