As an integrated global producer of 100% recycled paperboard and paperboard products, Newark is not new to resource management. In fact, we have been leaders in the development of new and innovative packaging solutions that are resource-conscious since long before it became fashionable to focus on sustainability. Now we are in the process of delineating our formal Sustainability Program. We are not alone in realizing the importance of this commitment. The competitive landscape requires it, but more than that it's the right thing to do. We have a Sustainability Steering Committee that guides our sustainability commitment and we allocate all the resources we require to take advantage of the very latest concepts, thinking and sustainability practices.
Newark commits to a strategy of sustainable business practices focused on the following tenets:
- Maintain a safe work environment
- Generate less waste
- Reduce energy consumption
- Support total employee involvement
- Encourage strong business and community relationships
- Increase stakeholder value through fiscal responsibility
We collect, process and convert in excess of 1.5 million tons of recovered fiber annually while focusing on "the customer" and the environment. Our resource recovery solutions are currently in place with some of America’s most prominent consumer products companies. Each of our business units will play a key role in enhancing "brand" NEWARK.
Newark is proud to be affiliated with the following organizations with a focus on SUSTAINABLE practices:
