Berry Promises More Sustainable Packaging



An Evansville-based plastics maker is has announced what the company calls its “most ambitious sustainable packaging goal to date.” 

Berry Global says it will move to 30% circular plastics packaging by 2030.

In a release, Berry said its global footprint and purchasing scale offer unique access to the supply of high-quality recycled material.

Berry said its new 30 by 30 goal surpasses its previous goal to use 10% post-consumer recycled resin by 2025.

In the release, Berry Chairman and CEO Tom Salmon said nothing is more important than helping its customers meet growing sustainability demand by “accelerating the industry’s move toward a circular economy where reuse, recovery, and recycling are maximized.”
