Sustainability & the Environment

As an industry leader, McLean Packaging Corporation is committed to minimizing the impact of its activities on the environment. The keys to achieving this goal are: 

  • Minimizing waste by evaluating operations and ensuring their maximum efficiency 
  • Actively promoting recycling 
  • Sourcing and promoting a sustainable and recyclable product range 
  • Minimizing materials added to the waste stream by offering a product range that includes a percentage of post-consumer recycled content 
  • Aggressively exploring sustainable design opportunities 
  • Meeting or exceeding all environmental legislation that relates to the company 

In addition to the overall goals of the company, we have also invested in a few other environmentally friendly initiatives:

  • Philcorr, a corrugated sheet manufacturer subsidiary located in Vineland, NJ, generates 50% of its total power via a 1.2-megawatt rooftop solar system (3,500 hundred fixed panels totaling 77,000 squares).
  • Our plants recycle over 95% of their in-house waste through conventional recycling methods.
