Sustainability

It's in our nature.

What your product packaging is made of and where it's sourced matter. Go green with Oliver. 

We actively fulfill our environmental responsibilities by investing in alternative energy sources and energy-efficient equipment to lower our carbon impact. Our lean operations approach reduces overall waste to near zero, and we've earned environmental certifications from internationally recognized organizations.

A commitment to sustainability

What does sustainable packaging mean to us? We define it as packaging that achieves its intended role while minimizing resource requirements, using only responsibly sourced materials, and maximizing opportunities for recovery, recycling, or reuse.

Oliver’s green options include:

  • Responsibly sourced recycled substrates and 'tree-free' alternatives including cotton, hemp, calcium carbonate, limestone, eucalyptus, sugarcane, bamboo, and more
  • Vegetable oil-based inks and water-based coatings
  • Prop 65 compliant UV inks and coatings
  • Cellulose acetate window material for folding cartons that's certified as 100-percent compostable and petroleum-free
  • Direct transfer metalized paperboard that eliminates the plastic film, so it's easily recycled with other printed papers
  • Digital proofing and 3D visualizations to reduce paper-use and save time

Sustainability through efficiency

With folding carton designers in each of our facilities, we provide a breadth and depth of experience in right-size packaging, enhancing the potential for reuse or recycling, and developing a structural design to stand out from the competition. We invest in the latest print and folding carton technologies to increase throughput and reduce our carbon footprint.
