CINCINNATI — Packaging supplier ProAmpac announced that its facility in Rocky Mountain, Va., received the International Sustainability Carbon Certification (ISCC) Plus recognition on Aug. 17. The facility processes conventional formulas as well as more sustainable alternatives, offering sustainability benefits to its customers.

The ISCC Plus certification supports the tracking of chemically recycled and bio-based polymers throughout the packaging supply chain.

“As more chemically recycled content becomes available and consumers better understand the sustainability benefits of the material, the ISCC Plus badge will become an important packaging differentiator,” said Jed Chubb, director of product development, blown film, at ProAmpac. “ProAmpac is excited to couple our blown-film expertise with ISCC Plus certification, delivering more sustainable flexible packaging to market faster for our customers.”

The Rocky Mountain facility specializes in film extrusion, processing chemically recycled and bio-based alternative materials, including ProAmpac’s ProActive Sustainability product line. According to the company, chemically recycled polymers can help reduce the use of virgin packaging materials.

“The ISCC Plus certification, coupled with our ProActive Sustainability product offering, underscores ProAmpac’s commitment to helping brand owners and retailers meet their sustainability goals,” said Chad Murdock, president of the Film and Fiber Division at ProAmpac.

The facility is the company’s second to earn ISCC Plus certification. ProAmpac’s facility in Grimsby, UK, received its certification in 2021.
