At Pactiv Evergreen, we strive to operate with respect for the environment, and we are committed to sustainability across our product portfolio, our manufacturing and supply chain and our communities.

In 2020, we advanced our commitments with new sustainability vision and mission statements, along with a trio of pillars that outline our initiatives. In addition, we announced a bold new product goal:

By 2030, 100% of our products will be made with recycled, recyclable or renewable materials.

This new goal supports our internal commitments and aligns well with our customers’ needs.

Protecting the Sustainability of our Forests

Our success as a company depends on a sustainable supply of wood fiber. After all, over half of the materials by weight that go into our products use wood fiber as a key input. But that is only part of the reason we support the sustainability of our forests.

Forests provide social and economic value to the communities in which we live and work. They offer sources of income for landowners and jobs for local residents, spaces for recreation and habitats for many species. They also help to mitigate the effects of climate change by providing long-term capture and sequestration of carbon dioxide, the primary greenhouse gas. To protect these forest values, we’re committed to promoting responsible forest management practices and helping landowners obtain the resources they need to implement them.

Collaborating with the Value Chain to Drive the Four R's

At Pactiv Evergreen, we believe that partnerships are the key to driving meaningful change. As just one manufacturer, we cannot by ourselves transform the complex patchwork of recycling and composting systems across North America.

Therefore, we collaborate with various partners to expand opportunities for consumers to recycle or compost our products.






Looking to the Future

At Pactiv Evergreen, we recognize that sustainability is a journey. As we look forward to our company’s future, we know we still have much to accomplish for ourselves, our customers, our communities and our planet.

We anticipate spending the next year finalizing our data management processes, understanding the opportunities for improvement, building out our strategy, and developing new goals and targets.

We look forward to sharing our progress.
