Pathway to sustainable packaging

Our goal at JohnsByrne is to assist our customers along the path to a more sustainable package. We do this by leveraging multiple elements:

  • Creative structural design that can reduce the amount of outer packaging.
  • Leverage and support the use of recognized certifications, including FSC and PEFC.
  • Reducing the use of virgin paperboard, by using high percentages of post-consumer waste.
  • Leveraging inks, foils, and embellishments that make packaging standout, but still represent a responsible consideration for our environment.
  • Combine the best structure with optimal paperboard, to align with our customers needs.

Designing eco-friendly packaging

Our knowledgeable and diverse structural design team works directly with our customers to understand their brand direction, product vision, and their desired high-impact result. Our team delivers concepts that consider the environmental impact, and are vetted with manufacturing to ensure manufacturability, all while following the JohnsByrne daily mantra of “pressing the limits” for structural packaging designs.
