“Where we see sustainability opportunities in the industry is looking for biomass reduction. And with packaging, we use a tremendous amount of corrugated or paper products in general, and we need to be able to recognize what those products are that we’re packaging with, identify volumes, costs and so on, so that we can actually put number to those biomass reductions in relation to the amount of corrugated, amount of paper, anything that goes into the packaging product.”
