LMI Packaging Solutions has been recognized as a Green Professional from the Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council. As a Green Professional, LMI Packaging has performed actions in nine sustainability areas and earned more than 200 points.
“LMI Packaging’s commitment to the environment has grown over the years with strong buy-in from employees at all levels,” said Randy Troutman, Vice President of Technology and Business Development. “The Green Masters Program has helped us identify and quantify efforts we have made toward sustainability, which supports our Triple Bottom Line (3BL) business approach – People, Planet, and Profitability.”
In 2010, LMI Packaging was the first U.S. based heat seal die-cut lidding company to make a commitment to purchase renewable electricity to offset 100% of the electricity used for its business operations. The company actively recycles scrap from its manufacturing operations and utilized water based inks.
“LMI Packaging makes every effort to manage resources wisely,” said Troutman. “We are pleased to be part of the growing number of Wisconsin organizations who are integrating sustainability into all aspects of business operations.”
