CHPA is committed to promoting best practices that seek to minimize environmental impacts, without compromising on health outcomes, product safety, and access to consumers. How do our members fulfill this responsibility? Whether that’s a reduction in plastics in packaging wherever feasible, reducing carbon footprint, working with partners across the value chain to innovate packaging solutions and improve recycling infrastructure, or other efforts, CHPA’s new Sustainability Spotlight will periodically highlight the important strides our manufacturer companies are making towards sound environmental stewardship.
