Milton, WI – October 9, 2018 – With a distinct focus on film, Scott Hammer, Corporate Sustainability Leader, and Apurva Shah, Strategic Market Manager, at Charter NEX Films, share with Packaging and Converting Intelligence how GreenArrow™ is empowering a new generation of sustainable packaging. “We saw this coming – something about this resurgence seemed different. It was what led us to develop GreenArrow™, a portfolio of sustainable packaging films, in 2016,” says Scott Hammer, corporate sustainability leader at Charter NEX Films.

A resurgence of concern around plastic waste has translated itself in an increasing number of corporate sustainability goals that include commitments to using 100% recyclable or reusable packaging. Charter NEX collaboratively works with converters to jointly develop new flexible packaging solutions. “This collaborative approach has been a key enabler, and having all parties engaged and committed to a single goal has certainly been a driving factor,” says Shah.

In addition to collaboration, a distinctive, singular focus on film allows Charter NEX to offer sustainable packaging films without the packaging performance trade-off.

“It started with a common mantra in the sustainable packaging world – reduce, reuse, recycle,” said Hammer. The GreenArrow™ family of films transformed this familiar saying into an innovative portfolio that was developed with a “sustainability-first” mindset.
