Knoll Packaging nominated for LuxePack New York in Green Awards
Knoll was nominated for Best Sustainable Product Design and Best CSR Initiative
June 13, 2022
Knoll Printing & Packaging announced it has been nominated for two categories at the LuxePack New York in Green Awards: Best Sustainable Product Design and Best CSR Initiative. These nominations are a testament to Knoll Packaging’s commitment to sustainability and creating a better future through innovation and leadership in the industry.
In the Best Sustainable Product Design category, Knoll Packaging was nominated for its 100% Knoll Ecoform molded pulp champagne pouch, which securely holds 1 champagne bottle and 2 glasses. Knoll Ecoform molded pulp is made of bamboo and sugarcane fibers, which can be formed and shaped to any size. The design is a first-to-market 100% molded pulp "pouch" for the champagne market that could replace similar designs out of plastic and foam. Knoll Ecoform is also certified recyclable, which makes this monomaterial approach attractive for the market.
In the Best CSR Initiative category, Knoll Packaging was nominated for its Knoll Social Responsibility (KSR) program. KSR launched as a pledge to protect our people and planet and Knoll’s commitment to recognize the importance of sustainable development by ensuring that business activities do not have an adverse impact on people, planet and prosperity. Based on our global operations and impact analysis, and to meet our sustainable development goals, KSR encompasses not only our own operations but also extends to our supply chain and customers. The initiative includes development of sustainable products, improving our policies and operations, suppliers, and customer management. It is our commitment to take a leadership role in the global sustainability movement to set the standard in our industry.
Wincy Cheng, Global Director of Sustainability, said, “Our team has dedicated its resources to not only understanding our impact, but implementing positive change through design innovation. It’s an honor to be nominated for both our leadership in the industry, and original concepts! It has been our goal to use data and creativity to find areas of implementation and a thrill to be recognized in these areas.”
Knoll Packaging won for Best CSR Initiative at the 2021 LuxePack Green Awards for its Material Consumption Database, which calculates the material used in their products, overall consumption, and supply chain beyond tier 1 to identify areas of improvement on both the product level and supply chain level.
The winners of the LuxePack in Green Awards will be announced at LuxePack New York. Knoll Packaging will be exhibiting its latest innovations, including the Knoll Ecoform molded pulp pouch, at Booth E14 on June 15-16.
