Sustainability In Action

Volm is actively committed to environmental sustainability — striving to understand and reduce our own environmental footprint while partnering with our customers in their efforts to do the same.

Our Commitment to the Environment

Volm Companies is committed to being a good steward of resources, and that includes the environment and our impact. At Volm Companies we believe it is too simplistic to label “plastic” as a bad word; it has accelerated the growth of economies and industries and continues to offer many advantages. However; we also believe it should be more mindfully used and reused in order to be good stewards of our environment and that, when proper alternatives are available, they should be used. Our commitment is that our everyday business practices and our products are focused under the Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle concept and that we collect that information, measure ourselves against it, and communicate it outwards to our business partners and users.

This is why you will find a strong portfolio of products that reflect the current reality of what is production-ready available to meet your packaging needs relative to the demand for a higher level of environmentally friendly packaging. It is also here where you will find us expand our information around what Volm is doing to play their part in being environmentally conscious while still keeping an eye to “what really can work” at a full-scale production level.
