The Circular Economy is business as usual for the Corrugated Packaging Industry. After all, today’s corrugated packaging is perfectly circular: it’s 100% recyclable, bio-based and biodegradable.

In fact, corrugated packaging is one of the most recycled paper products in practice today, with a well-established market for secondary raw materials. Efficient recycling processes allow fibres to be reused for new packaging.

Recycled paper provides 88% of the raw material for new corrugated boxes – ensuring the continuous life of the fibres while making a valuable contribution to our economy.

Easy to recycle

We’re continuously increasing our use of recycled fibres, which now make up 88% of the raw material for new corrugated packaging.

Wide Area of Use

Aside from packaging for transportation purposes, nowadays corrugated cardboards are being used in areas like product packaging, storing and protection.

Bio-based and renewable

Corrugated packaging paper is made almost entirely from natural resources with any new fibres used, the wood is harvested from sustainably managed forests.

Circular by nature, corrugated packaging is bio-based and provides a natural alternative to fossil-based products. It’s made almost entirely from natural materials: recycled and virgin fibres, along with natural starch-based glue. The fibres come from renewable sources, the sustainably managed forests, which is helping to preserve natural resources for current and future generations.

A Sustainable Future

Used corrugated packaging has been recycled effectively for decades, supporting the well-established market for recycled paper as a secondary raw material.

89% recycled content of new corrugated packaging reduces the need for new fibre, protecting natural resources.

Easy-to-fold when no longer needed, retailers and consumers can collect and give used corrugated packaging for recycling with ease.

Tightly folded, corrugated packaging takes up much less storage space than reusable packaging – at the store before recyclers collect it and on recyclers’ trucks during transportation.
