About Us

As sustainability becomes a more and more prominent issue, we at Accredo Packaging have risen to the challenge of offering our customers various sustainable packaging solutions by adhering to our core mission of sustainability, in both our manufacturing processes and our products.

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.

US & Asia

Global Reach

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.

AccredoAsia in Vietnam Expands Global Reach
LEED Silver certified Accredo Asia manufacturing facility in Vietnam.

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!

I’m green PE is a plastic produced from sugarcane, a renewable raw material, while traditional PE uses fossil fuel sourced raw materials. For this reason, I’m green PE captures CO2 from the atmosphere during its production, helping to reduce greenhouse gases emissions. Additionally, suppliers must follow principles of sustainable development present in the “Responsible Ethanol Sourcing” developed and implemented by Braskem, which covers aspects such as respect for biodiversity and good environmental practices. I’m green PE retains the same properties, performance and application versatility of traditional PE and can be recycled within traditional PE recycling streams. Source: Braskem USA

BPI is a science-driven organization that supports a shift to the circular economy by promoting the production, use, and appropriate end of lives for materials and products that are designed to fully biodegrade in specific biologically active environments.

As part of the third-party certification, BPI utilizes independent laboratories. These labs must either be accredited in the scope of ASTM D6400 and ASTM D6868, or have demonstrated compliance, ensuring they are capable of performing the tests. 

Certification for compostable products is critical for ensuring that items have been properly tested, meet international standards, and can be identified as such by composters, municipalities, restaurants, consumers, and others engaged in the diversion of organic waste. BPI advocates for compostable products as tools for scalable diversion of organic waste to composting.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) established the Green Power Partnership (GPP) in 2001 to protect human health and the environment by increasing organizations’ voluntary green power use to advance the American market for green power and the development of those renewable electricity sources. The Green Power Partnership helps to achieve Clean Air Act requirements by reducing the pollution and the corresponding negative health and environmental impacts associated with conventional electricity use. The program provides a framework that includes credible usage benchmarks, market information, technical assistance, and public recognition to companies and other organizations that use green power. Partners commit to use green power for all, or a portion, of their annual electricity consumption.

Zero Pellet, Flake, and Powder Loss is a priority for the plastics industry—and a critical issue for our environment. Spilled pellets, flakes, and powder can make their way into local waterways and ultimately estuaries and the ocean. This isn’t just an eyesore and a litter issue; pellets, flakes, and powder, if accidentally mistaken for food by birds or marine animals, could harm them. That’s why the industry is behind Zero Pellet, Flake, and Powder Loss—and it can only be achieved with your help. The OCS Program was created to help you protect the environment and keep it clean. The campaign’s goal is to help every plastic resin handling operation implement good housekeeping and pellet, flake, and powder containment practices to work towards achieving zero pellet, flake, and powder loss, protecting the environment and saving valuable resources.

The USDA Certified Biobased Packaging label on a product certifies that the packaging contains third-party tested and verified biobased content. The purpose of this label is to make it easy for consumers to locate and compare biobased products for purchase.

The USDA has established minimum biobased content standards for many product categories. A product must meet or exceed the minimum biobased content percentage in its given category in order to qualify for certification. Products belonging in categories for which minimum biobased content requirements have not yet been established must contain at least 25% biobased content.

Biobased products are derived from plants and other renewable agricultural, marine, and forestry materials. These products provide an alternative to conventional petroleum derived products and include a diverse range of offerings such as lubricants, detergents, inks, fertilizers, and bioplastics. For the purposes of the BioPreferred program, biobased products do not include food, animal feed or biofuels.

How2Recycle is a standardized labeling system that clearly communicates recycling instructions to the public. It involves a coalition of forward thinking brands who want their packaging to be recycled and are empowering consumers through smart packaging labels. The label communicates the following details:
  • How to prep the material for recycling
  • For more information
  • How to recycle
  • Type of material
  • Packaging format

Cleaner oceans start by preventing plastics from entering them in the first place. Being able to recycle that plastic is even better. That’s the concept driving OceanBound Plastics. 

We take material at-risk of becoming ocean pollution and turn it into a reliable plastic resin. Combining supply chain experience with technical expertise, we create a versatile product that can be used in virtually any application where HDPE is preferred. Every pound of OceanBound Plastic is potential pollution transformed into a recyclable resource.

Our expanded gamut printing process eliminates all ink changes which results in up to 95% ink waste reduction, and up to 35% less ink and solvent usage.

Our state of the art extruders are capable of producing the thinnest, high-performance films and barriers that can also incorporate eco-resins such as renewable content or post-consumer recycled content.

We also have a closed loop recycling system in our US facility to recycle and reincorporate our waste into new packages.

All of these work to reduce our waste to landfill relative to conventional printing and extrusion processes.


Accredo Packaging uses 100% wind electricity to power its Sugar Land, Texas Global headquarters and manufacturing facility. In 2013, we were recognized by the EPA for our leadership in green power with the Green Power Leadership Award.

Our sustainability goals include continued dedication to 100% Texas wind energy in our Texas operations through 2025.
