SUSTAINABILITY MISSION STATEMENT

fountain-penIt is the mission of Hood Packaging Corporation to provide packaging products that are responsibly sourced, meet market criteria and are designed to be safe and effective throughout their life cycle.

Rather than simply meeting environmental laws and regulations, we assume a leadership role in assuring environmental security via the responsible management of our resources.

Our operations work proactively to achieve measureable and continuous improvement in such areas as reducing energy usage and carbon emissions, conserving water, reusing internal scrap, reducing packaging, eliminating landfill waste and promoting workplace safety.

Our customers are our partners in sustainability. We work proactively with customers to improve the environmental profile for their packages via use of renewable and recyclable materials, lowering transport costs and promoting “sustainability through innovation” in packaging structures and design.

Our commitment to sustainability is an integral part of Hood Packaging Corporation’s strategy for growth. This commitment is shared throughout our organization and shapes day to day behavior. We recognize that our future and the future of those we serve depend on it.
