Paper Packaging Products
From the ongoing Efficient Frontier program to produce more with less to the development of more sustainable products, Greif's Paper Packaging business is making significant strides in trimming its environmental footprint.
In 2012, Greif subsidiary CorrChoice developed the game-changing product LeaderCorr™ sign board. LeaderCorr replaces foam board used by the retail industry and others for printed signs and in-store displays.
LeaderCorr is a double-walled corrugated sheet that, unlike foam board, is completely recyclable. This means it can be put into the OCC (old corrugated containers, i.e., used cardboard) waste stream, which is an income source for the retailer.
The production of LeaderCorr is also environmentally responsible and, because it is an income source, sustainable. In its manufacture, the product uses less energy, less water and less starch than traditional paper-based corrugated materials. Because of the technology that uses less water, the LeaderCorr sheets are flatter than other corrugated sheets, and when overlaid with a high quality white liner, provide an ideal surface for high-impact printing.
