ning to attempt—it creates a green business that is just as good for the planet as it is for the bottom line. “Retailer score sheets and growing public demand have created a business context where sustainability is more a requirement than an option,” explains Roy. “ It’s an environ- ment that reflects our core values, and one we’re very happy to do business in.” INNOVATION BY DESIGN The Packaging Group is obviously one of the conglom- erate’s defining features. Considered a leading industry trendsetter in the production of specialized folding cartons, the PaperWorks Packaging Group web flexo capabilities include flexibility and responsiveness, reduced lead times, cost-effective printing and converting, backside printing up to three colors and consistent graphic reproduction. With brand values in mind, it creates packaging products that dependably reflect high standards of strength and reliabil- ity. From folding cartons to food packaging, PaperWorks has generations of experience and a full range of services to offer. PaperWorks has become a packaging giant through mod- ernization, expertise and technological confidence.
