Environmental management is a core value of our Company. We are committed to implementing company wide environmental and chemical management systems to achieve environmental compliance and sustainability. It’s been part of the DNA of Appvion from the start.

As market leaders we introduced the world’s first carbonless paper, NCR PAPER* Brand. With the removal of the carbon ply, we proudly introduced a 100% recyclable product back in 1954 providing a lower environmental impact. We were one of the first to remove BPA from our Thermal products to improve product safety and sustainability attributes. We do not use any solvents in our coating technologies, only water based, which is more harmonious with the environment.
What is sustainability:

Sustainability is directing business activities and strategies that meet the needs of the company and our customers, while investing in employees and local communities, and protecting the current environment and its resources for our future generations.

Why is it important to Appvion:

As market leaders in innovation, Appvion understands that sustainability is essential for long term prosperity.
