Mainetti views sustainability differently than other companies.  Instead of focusing on a single aspect of a product, we employ a holistic approach.  Our team considers every stage of the product life cycle, including raw material, design, manufacturing, distribution, retail usage, re-use & recycle processing and eventual end-of-life.

We are committed to a more sustainable future by establishing challenging objectives in Plan M, our corporate environmental strategy.

Our four areas of focus:

Climate Change

Reducing impact in the amount of fossil fuels and energy we use throughout the supply chain

Sustainable Resources

Minimizing the use of natural resources and newly manufactured oil-based materials

War on Waste

Striving to achieve zero waste by utilizing the latest lean tools and principles

Fair Employer & Fair Partner

Committing to be best-in-class employers, and giving back to the communities where we operate

Mainetti is the sustainability leader in the markets we operate

Several of our factories are certified “Green” and have been recognized for environmental excellence in the areas they operate.  As an example, Mainetti India was amongst the first recipients of the Indian Green Building Council’s Platinum Green Factory Certification for its energy efficiency, reduction in water usage, conservation of natural resources, and waste reduction.

Mainetti’s total carbon footprint, as calculated by electricity consumption, has dropped 22% since 2012 and continues on a downward trajectory.

In addition to operating and producing sustainably, we innovate within all of our categories to make more environmentally friendly products and solutions.  For example, our M-film and M-Pact product lines offer sustainable alternatives to traditional oil-derived flexible packaging and hangers.

Our research and development process focuses on advancements that deliver real benefits, including maximizing re-use, addressing end-of-life and working towards being carbon neutral.

Sustainability is not supplemental to our operations; it is the lens through which we examine everything we do.
