Sustainable Packaging Solutions

Learn about the sustainable packaging solutions offered by H.B. Fuller and how thoughtful packaging design is critical to further our path to a circular economy model.

At H.B. Fuller, we are committed to sustainability and strive to meet the needs of the present generation without compromising future generations. And we’re not alone. Global brand owners are committing to long-term sustainability goals. Organizations are creating partnerships and certifications to create alignment and change. Plus, governments are creating policies and regulations to advance sustainability around the world.

This increase in sustainability goals, partnerships and regulations is causing a shift from a linear economy to a circular economy model. With a sharp focus on this model, we are tackling sustainability issues by creating products that reduce energy usage, minimize waste, and more.

Accordingly, with our sustainability strategy for packaging applications, we have created a new Earthic™ packaging product line to indicate which products help address these issues. At H.B. Fuller, we strive to lead an ethical culture. For us, that includes providing ethical packaging solutions for our Earth. There is only one Earth, and it is our collective responsibility to protect it.
