Diamond Packaging has achieved certified zero landfill status.Zero Landfill

Diamond measures its progress on environmental issues through the use of key measures on our corporate Strategic Metrics scorecard, including Total Waste Recycled and Total Regulated Waste.

In 2014 Diamond achieved zero landfill status, becoming the first U.S.-based folding carton supplier to achieve the distinction.

The recovery and recycling program is a natural evolution of the company's greenbox sustainability initiative and one which will provide long-term environmental and economic benefits.

It is also part of a demonstrable effort to design and produce packaging within a restorative and regenerative circular economy.

To achieve this goal, Diamond's two manufacturing facilities reduced their overall waste streams and increased recycling rates to approximately 98 percent. All remaining waste is sent for fuels blending or to Covanta Energy for Energy-from-Waste (EfW), eliminating the need for landfill disposal.
