Sponsored by Deloitte Private and The Wall Street Journal, the program recognizes outstanding U.S. private companies and the achievements of their em- ployees. The 2021 designees are U.S. private companies that have demonstrated excellence in strategic planning and business execution, a commitment to their people and fostering a dynamic, resilient culture, as well as strong fi- nancial performance, all while facing the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite major operating and market challenges, they continued to lead with purpose and with the goal of making significant contributions to their cus- tomers, workforces, shareholders, and communities. “It is an honor for Menasha Corporation to receive this award,” said Jim Kotek, President and CEO, Mena- sha Corporation. “It is our employees who are to be com- mended for this recognition—they demonstrate daily the importance of our company values and their incredible commitment to our customers cannot be overstated. The pandemic presented extra challenges for our employees in 2020 and I view this award as a testament to their ex- traordinary efforts and success.” Applicants are evaluated and selected by a panel of external judges and join a global ecosystem of honorees from more than 30 countries recognized by the Best Man- aged Companies program. Visit GPI Joins PRESERVE H2020 Project To Promote Bio-Based Packaging Early in 2021, Graphic Packaging International (GPI) was among 26 partners from ten countries to meet virtually for the kick-off meeting of the PRESERVE H2020 project, co- ordinated by Iris Technology Group, based in Spain. Over the next four years, members of the PRESERVE consortium will develop a set of innovative processes and materials to foster the circular use of bio-based packag- ing. The project will evaluate different biomaterials to opti- mally preserve food and beverage products and up-cycle their resulting end-of-life. The project is expected to deliver at least ten bioplas- tic and paperboard-based packaging items which will be fully renewably sourced and have minimal environmental impact. This ambitious objective will be made possible thanks to the collaboration of organizations covering the whole supply and value chains. The consortium will use interdisciplinary sources of knowledge to assess the per- formance of the solutions and introduce viable, circular, bio-based packaging solutions into the market.
