Amcor (NYSE: AMCR, ASX: AMC), a global leader in developing and producing responsible packaging solutions, announced today that the Amcor Flexibles manufacturing plant in Londrina, Brazil, is the first Amcor plant in Latin America to achieve International Sustainability and Carbon Certification Plus (ISSC Plus)status. . The certification allows one of Amcor’s largest plants in Latin America to use advanced recycled materials across its product portfolio.
“We are continually exploring ways to increase the use of recycled content in our packaging,” said Ruben Melara, President, Amcor Flexibles Latin America. “The ISCC Plus certification will enable us to deliver advanced recycling materials across Latin America and expand the options for customers seeking more sustainable packaging solutions.”
The achievement also supports Amcor’s commitment to reach 30% recycled content by 2030 and aligns with the company’s sustainability pledge to make all products recyclable, reusable or compostable by 2025.
ISCC PLUS is a standard well-recognized by stakeholders for recycled and bio-based materials. ISCC PLUS certification provides traceability along the supply chain and verifies that companies meet environmental and social standards. For companies using the mass balance approach, ISCC PLUS certification verifies that the mass balance accounting follows predefined and transparent rules.
The technology behind advanced recycling materials allows plastic waste to be converted into brand new products that are no different in quality and performance from ones made with virgin raw materials. This provides customers with the benefit of increasing the use of circular content in their packaging and peace of mind for using a more sustainable solution.
