Pratt Industries To Invest 20M In Packaging Operation Pratt Industries, Inc., reportedly the world’s largest privately held, 100 percent recycled paper and packaging company, will invest more than $20 mil- lion to establish a new paper packaging and ship- ping materials manufacturing operation in the Botetourt County,Virginia. The facility will be Pratt’s second manufacturing operation in Virginia and will reportedly allow the company to increase market share and grow sales of its paper-based packaging and shipping materials within Virginia and the surrounding states. Virginia successfully competed with multiple states for the project, which will create 50 new jobs. Since its founding almost 30 years ago, Pratt Indus- tries, Inc. has grown to reportedly become the fifth- largest corrugated packaging company in the United States with manufacturing facilities in more than 27 states. The company’s more than 8,000 employees service a variety of industries with packaging and re- cycling needs while maintaining a commitment to the environment and sustainability. Pratt Industries’ products are primarily made from post-consumer re- cycled materials. Colbert Reduces Carbon Footprint With Wind Energy Colbert Packaging Corporation, Lake Forest, Illi- nois, a provider of paperboard packaging solutions, has purchased renewable energy credits (RECs) in the form of wind energy.This initiative complements Colbert’s overall sustainable strategy and commit- ment to reducing the environmental impact of its operations. The investment allows Colbert to lower its carbon footprint and protect the environment, and supports the development of renewable energy technologies. "We manufacture paperboard-based folding cartons, which is a sustainable alternative to plastics,” stated Colbert President and COO, John Lackner. “Now we are able to further our strategy to meet overall clean energy goals with wind energy credits.We firmly be- lieve it’s important to make sustainable decisions with the future in mind — for our employees and their families, our customers and our community.” Colbert made this investment in renewable wind energy by purchasing Green-e Energy certified re- newable energy certificates (RECs) to reduce the emissions associated with its electricity consump- tion. That’s an environmental impact equivalent to the avoidance of 17,640 barrels of oil.
