Helping Our Customers Stay Sustainable
Solving sustainability challenges
Retailers around the globe are actively looking for sustainable products and solutions to meet consumer demands and to respect our planet. At PDA we help to bring those solutions to our customers. We stay on our toes with researching and innovating sustainable solutions and providing sustainable options for our customers.
Helping our customers with longevity
Sustainability and longevity go together. By having sustainable options in packaging and in operations, our customers are able to stay alive and healthy. Sustainability is not just in product – it is also in design and operations. By designing a packaging line that focuses on sustainability we help our customers achieve a healthy footprint. We also look for ways to keep our own logistics centers green. Many of our distributors have sustainability plans and have evolved their centers to be more friendly for the environment.
The Environmental Landscape
More than 29.7 Million Tons of Corrugated Boxes are Generated per Year
…and that’s just boxes. Our daily business operations ensure the life enabling, life saving, and life sustaining products that our customers pour their sweat and tears into, make it to their final destinations. This cannot happen without lighting and electricity, manufacturing processes, transportation, renewable goods, and other environmentally dependent products and activities. In order to keep these wheels turning in a way that helps to sustain the future of our planet, we address the word’s toughest issues with long-term plans that are driven by innovation.
How we face these issues
We ensure that the environmental aspects of how we design, engineer, and manufacture our products are safe and adhere to, if not surpass, the industry standards and initiatives. We utilize technology that monitors and limits usage of water, chemicals, gases, plants, and land to help us quantify our impact and ensure that we are mindful of the communities where we operate, and the potential for the future. Not without saying, we realize that we cannot do this alone, so we prioritize spreading the word about how to responsibly care for the products that we create and distribute. Over time, we have made progress in the ways that we source, manufacture, and distribute our products, and we will never stop looking for ways to be better.
We face the word’s toughest challenges with a sense of compassion, curiosity, and innovation.
