Situated in Sugar Land, Texas, Accredo Packaging, Inc. is a fully integrated converting company producing flexible packaging with an emphasis on sustainability, with best in class production processes, primarily targeting the Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) markets. The LEED® Silver certified manufacturing facility utilizes 100% wind-generated electrical power, with a focus on eliminating waste while minimizing its carbon footprint. The manufacturing facility has the most current technology available for blown films, flexographic printing, adhesive lamination, pouch and bag making. Products include coextruded, laminated, printed or unprinted barrier roll-stock, pouches, wicketed bags and bundling film. Accredo Packaging has found that renewable energy is one of the easiest and most effective ways to minimize the impact of carbon emissions. The company decided to purchase wind power because it proved a more cost effective alternative to solar power and the increased cost of wind over fossil fuel-sourced power was minimal, considering the benefit achieved. “We pursue sustainable processes when it comes to production of our products,” says Accredo’s Executive Vice President, Rex Varn. “By powering our business using 100% wind-generated power we reduce our non-renewable energy consumption and lessen our impact on the environment."
