Covanta Publishes Case Study on Diamond Packaging's Zero Manufacturing Waste to Landfill Initiative

Rochester, NY – The biggest challenge faced by a company that’s defined itself as innovative and sustainability‐focused since 1911 is to remain on the forefront of green business operation. After more than a century of sustainable business practices – in an industry where waste can quickly mount – making a difference often comes down to the incremental steps a company chooses to take. Diamond Packaging chose the road less traveled, becoming the only American‐owned folding carton manufacturer to achieve zero manufacturing waste‐to‐landfill status: the gold standard of green business operation.

With the help of Covanta, as well as additional partners, the waste stream that leaves the Diamond Packaging facility eventually returns to it in the form of raw materials.

An added benefit is that all of Diamond's folding cartons are manufactured using 100% clean, renewable wind energy and produced in a Zero Manufacturing Waste to Landfill (ZMWL) facility.
