Sustainability

The Curtis Commitment

We believe in the importance of environmental stewardship and feel it is a responsibility of our company to hold ourselves to a higher standard.

 

We have maintained a leadership position and relish our impeccable reputation for producing exceptionally high-quality packaging with efficient processes in a carbon-neutral facility. This has led to investments in renewable energy, reliance on responsibly sourced materials, and implementation of a recycling take-back process to ensure our materials are not adding to waste streams.

We continually monitor, manage, and invest in best practices to ensure we are at the forefront of protecting our environment.

We are a Zero Waste to Landfill facility.

Renewable Energy

Curtis uses 100% renewable energy, with 25% generated from our on-site solar arrays, and we are recognized by the EPA as a Green Power Partner.

Sustainable Sourcing

We are proud to provide our clients with a wide variety of environmentally responsible raw materials.
