SETTING A RESPONSIBILITY STANDARD
The protection of natural resources is not only encouraged for corporations but is often code. Additionally, practices such as annual environmental analysis, consistent carbon footprint reduction, and eco-efficient supply chains are all ways to consistently and responsibly further product quality and sustainable packaging innovation while protecting natural resources.
Rondo-Pak complies with the standards set by the Forest Stewardship Council™ as verified by the Rainforest Alliance and other environmental initiatives. The FSC promotes an environmentally, socially, and economically conscious approach to using forest resources as safely as possible. The exacting standards set by these organizations assure you that Rondo-Pak takes great pride in our stewardship of the planet, and protecting our natural resources.
Our sustainable packaging materials come from forest farms that have met rigorous standards for protecting forestlands, communities, and wildlife.

NEW JERSEY DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
Rondo-Pak is the recipient of a Certificate of Environmental Stewardship from the State of New Jersey, Department of Environmental Protection Compliance and Enforcement. We are recognized by this body for our "voluntary and proactive measures taken to go beyond compliance in an effort to improve the environment and ensure a sustainable future."
ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT PRACTICES
We have implemented many processes into our production to ensure that we are helping the planet as much as we can. We conduct an annual management review with measurements against new goals, set each year, for minimizing energy and natural resources. The review also includes the analysis of material flows and generation of appropriate new measures for optimization.
We commit to the measurement and continuous improvement of CO2 footprints, consistently embark on projects to minimize waste, and use a two-tier loading strategy of trucks to optimize transportation volume.
ECO TOYO INK
In printing practices, minimizing coating areas, using reusable ink containers, and implementing in-line color monitoring are all ways to optimize the supply chain in an eco-friendly matter.
Rondo-Pak focuses on implementing eco-friendly measures from the start, using Eco Toyo Ink, and environmentally solvent ink, an ink that's safe than other material options.
