McLean Packaging to go 100% renewable

McLean Packaging announced Aug. 3 a five-year plan that includes sourcing 100% renewable energy and transitioning to a zero-carbon business plan.

The manufacturer of packaging goods for the personal care sector collaborated on the development of this plan with national energy advisory firm 5 and ENGIE Resources. McLean Packaging will match their energy usage 100% with Green-e certified Renewable Energy Credits from offshore wind.

"From installing more than 75,000 solar panels to utilizing paper products certified by the Forest Stewardship Council and Sustainable Forest Initiative, sustainability has been at the forefront of McLean Packaging's operations for years," Jeff Besnick, Vice President of McLean Packaging, said in a statement.  "As consumers continue to demand products that espouse eco-friendliness, we are proud to play our part in providing packaging with as small a carbon footprint as possible – from power sourcing to materials."

McLean Packaging currently has three production facilities across New Jersey and Pennsylvania covering nearly half a million square feet. In these facilities, they use high-energy equipment like industrial printing presses, folder and gluers, thermoformers and rigid box converters.

The company will continue their sustainability initiatives under the guidance of 5 and ENGIE Resources through market intelligence, account management and analysis and the implementation of clean energy solutions.
