Diamond Greenbox Initiative
Diamond is committed to working toward a cleaner environment. We developed our Diamond Greenbox sustainability initiative to research, design, and implement packaging solutions that are innovative and more sustainable.
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.
Our designers create packaging that is both innovative and sustainable, while considering factors such as product protection, usability, billboard space, and first moment of truth (FMOT).
Diamond carefully evaluates materials and suppliers to make the best recommendation for our customers’ products.
From concept to completion, our approach to package design addresses sustainability throughout the supply chain. This includes incorporating best practices at the plant level: renewable energy, energy efficiency, process improvements, and waste recycling.
Diamond's industry-leading sustainability initiatives have been recognized by trade organizations, customers, and non-profit organizations (NPOs).
