ALLIANCE ONE RECEIVES THE RAI SUPPLIER SUSTAINABILITY AWARD

For Constantia Flexibles, an international manufacturer of flexible packaging, sustainability means paying close attention to its business, environment and social responsibilities, not only by its actions but also serving as an example to the industry in which it operates. 

That mission, supported by an innovative approach, won Reynolds American Inc.’s 2017 Supplier Leadership Award for Sustainability. Reynolds American and its subsidiaries applaud the efforts of Constantia Flexibles and all supply chain partners who share our commitment to sustainability.

Constantia Flexibles developed a peer-reviewed Meta LCA-Model. This a sophisticated tool provides customers, product development teams and other stakeholders information on the environmental footprint associated with various packaging options that balance environmental impact with other business considerations.  The company can flexibly evaluate any combination of production processes, raw material inputs, waste handling possibilities and country-specific settings to a high level of detail. This creates opportunities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, while supporting the best packaging solutions for its customers.

“Much of our environmental impact is driven by the supply chain, and tools like the one developed by Constantia Flexibles are necessary for companies to drive increased environmental performance.”
Tripp Wilson, vice president, corporate sustainability and commercial equity
