Together we explore sustainable materials

By combining inhouse expertise and partnerships with universities and customers, we are driving the development of new green materials that will meet emerging customer needs and requirements for even more sustainable packaging solutions.

Development through partnerships

Sustainable Materials

Our focus on renewable and biodegradable materials will provide our customers with even more sustainable packaging solutions, resulting in reduced environmental impact. With a continuous focus on developing renewable and biodegradable materials, we are finding new ways to achieve greater sustainability in our solutions and smarter ways to reduce environmental impact. Together, we can pave the way for a future with less packaging waste.

Calculating environmental impact

We have developed our own certified environmental impact calculator, called GreenCALC, to assess the CO2 and environmental impact of packaging solutions.

Solutions for the future

Sustainability is at the core of our vision and close to the heart of our company and together with our partners worldwide we discover sustainable solutions for tomorrow.

Nefab GreenCALC 

Over the years, we have developed our own certified environmental impact calculator, called GreenCALC, to assess and compare the carbon dioxide emission and overall environmental impact of different packaging solutions.

By using GreenCALC in tandem with the Life Cycle Assessment method, we are able to analyze packaging in each major stage of its usage, from the raw material phase all the way to its end of life. With this, we can gather detailed information which helps us design a solution that addresses the unique challenges that can arise in each stage.

Sustainable Solutions

We strive to offer solutions that are easy to recycle at their end destination, but without ever sacrificing the right level of protection to secure your products in the most efficient way possible.

At Nefab, we are in a unique position to influence sustainable practices, both through our geographic footprint and in that our solutions affect so many members throughout our customers' supply chains. This responsibility is one that is not held lightly; to us, taking care of natural resources has been a fundamental part of our culture from the very beginning – it is a way of working and simply a way of being in our day to day lives at Nefab.

To this end, we focus on three primary areas when it comes to our commitment to sustainable materials: imparting change in our customers' worlds, in our suppliers' worlds, and finally, in our own world. To learn more about these areas, please view our approach to sustainability.
