Based in Sugar Land, Texas Accredo Packaging is 100% electrical powered by wind energy and opened our doors in 2009 as the first LEED® Silver-certified manufacturing facility in the flexible packaging industry.
We are committed to recycling, water and energy conservation, and many sustainable initiatives throughout our manufacturing process. For example, our advanced printing technology reduces ink and solvent usage by more than a third, when compared with standard presses.
Fully Recyclable Pouch
US & Asia
Innovation at Accredo Packaging
We have also explored beyond traditional resins to biodegradable and recyclable eco-resins. Our product development team’s efforts led to the first fully ASTM certified, industrially compostable zippered pouch, as well as the first fully recyclable barrier (as well as non-barrier) polyethylene (PE) stand-up pouches in the U.S. Numerous awards suggest that we lead the industry with our line of recyclable product options.
Environmentally-focused brands have chosen Accredo Packaging for our aligned company values. Our all-PE products can be recycled via store drop-off, and are eligible for the Sustainable Packaging Coalition’s How2Recycle label.
Even though the pouches comprise of all-PE, they have been recognized for their look and performance, and as a competitive alternative to conventional non-recyclable structures.
Our continued success led to the opening of a sister facility in Vietnam in 2019. Like the Texas campus, Accredo Asia is LEED® Silver-certified by the US Green Building Council. The state-of-the art facility includes an extensive solar panel array installed on the roof to offset its carbon footprint, and is a further example of Accredo’s commitment to renewable energy.
Accredo’s innovation and sustainability excellence has earned us numerous awards in 2020. The AccredoFlex® Gen2™packaging alone has won two Gold awards from Flexographic Technical Association, The ReFocus Sustainability Summit’s Design for Recyclability Award and The ReFocus Sustainability Summit’s People’s Choice Award.
Sustainability is a buzzword you see everywhere, but at Accredo, we really do see sustainability as the core of what we do and what we offer. Sustainability is in our DNA!
