IPG’s Danville Manufacturing Plant Awarded TRUE Zero Waste Certification by Green Business Certification Inc.

IPG (Intertape Polymer Group) announced that its Danville, VA manufacturing plant, which produces carton sealing tape, stretch film, air pillows, and polyethylene (PE) tape, was awarded TRUE Zero Waste Certification under the TRUE (Total Resource Use and Efficiency) rating system. Administered by Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI), TRUE helps facilities measure, improve, and recognize zero waste performance by encouraging the adoption of sustainable waste management and reduction practices, which contribute to positive environmental, health and economic outcomes.

The Danville, VA facility is the first IPG manufacturing plant to obtain this certification. The IPG Danville team has implemented numerous recycling initiatives over the years and now has a diversion rate of 97.5%. In 2023, the plant diverted over 16 million pounds of material from the landfill, mostly through recycling efforts. By implementing the TRUE Zero Waste program, the plant has enhanced its already robust culture of zero waste.

”We are extremely proud of our employees at the IPG Danville manufacturing facility for earning the TRUE Zero Waste Certification,” said Michael B. Jones, Director of Global Energy and Sustainability. “This prestigious certification represents the plant’s leadership in sustainability and ongoing efforts to protect the environment by redesigning processes, recycling, reducing, and reusing materials.”
