Menasha Corporation Report Outlines Progress Toward Reaching Sustainability Goals

2/11/2011

Menasha Corporation today announced the publication of its first Sustainability Report, entitled, "Making the World a Better Place."  The report focuses on the Corporation's three-tiered approach to sustainability by increasing economic value, demonstrating social responsibility and enhancing environmental stewardship.

“We have made significant strides in reducing our internal environmental impact as well as driving tremendous economic value for our customers in the past couple of years,” said Menasha Corporation President and CEO, Jim Kotek.  “We help our customers – some of the biggest names in their industries – to protect, move and promote their products.  We are engaged in helping them analyze every point in their supply chain as well as the products they produce, all in an effort to reduce their impact on the environment.”

In late 2010, Menasha Corporation announced that sustainability is one of the critical areas in which the company will take a market leadership position.  It has already made a number of significant achievements in sustainability, including:

New product introductions that include designs that offer the same function and performance but use fewer raw materials in the manufacturing process;
Increased its purchase of plastics for recycling;
Reductions in the consumption of electricity, natural gas, water, and other natural resources and materials;
Installation of five Renewegy 20 kW wind turbines at its Neenah office and manufacturing complex; and
Support of environmental organizations through donations from the Menasha Corporation Foundation.
The Sustainability Report can be accessed online.
