Diamond Packaging Wins Environmental Innovation Award

Rochester, NY – Diamond Packaging today announced that it was selected as a recipient of the Seneca Park Zoo Society's Environmental Innovation Award in the Large Business category. Awards were announced during the inaugural Environmental Innovation Awards and Symposium on Thursday, October 25, 2018 at the Joseph A. Floreano Rochester Riverside Convention Center. The event was developed to celebrate leadership in environmental stewardship, raising the profile of innovative companies and people working to solve complex environmental problems in the Rochester and Finger Lakes Region.

Diamond received the Large Business Award for Environmental Innovation for demonstrating original solutions to current environmental issues, with cross-functional sustainability practices throughout the company. Diamond showed evidence of lowering its environmental footprint and the footprint of their customers with practices that are replicable for other companies.

Diamond was recognized for its greenbox initiative to research, design, and implement packaging solutions that are innovative and more sustainable. The initiative balances business with environmental considerations by promoting sustainability in all aspects of package production.

The core of the initiative – designs, materials, and methods – represents a comprehensive approach to packaging that minimizes environmental impact throughout the supply chain.

Through creative design, careful material selection, and best practices at the plant level, Diamond is able to minimize waste, reduce shipping costs and increase efficiencies – all of which support a sustainable use of resources and cultivate a positive emotional connection to the brand.

Today, Diamond's folding cartons are optimally designed utilizing FSC®-certified recyclable or recycled paperboards, and are manufactured using 100% clean, renewable wind energy, in a Zero Waste to Landfill (ZWL) facility.
