APR represents companies who acquire, reprocess and sell the output of more than 90% of the post-consumer plastic processing capacity in North America.
The national trade association supports the recycling of all post-consumer plastic packaging.
The partnership will allow ProAmpac to continue to grow its ProActive Sustainability platform towards a more circular economy.
It will also enhance its position to help customers meet their sustainability goals.
ProAmpac chief commercial officer Adam Grose said: “This step furthers our ProActive Sustainability initiative, a companywide commitment to developing and innovating sustainable flexible packaging products, as well as promoting sustainability in our manufacturing sites and the communities where we operate.
“ProAmpac has become an increasingly sought-after resource for recyclable, post-consumer recycled, renewable, and compostable products. It was time for us to not only use APR standards, but also to actively participate in the organisation that helps set them.”
Based in Cincinnati, ProAmpac provides creative packaging solutions, industry-leading customer service and award-winning innovation to various markets.
Recently, ProAmpac developed a collaboration and innovation centre (CIC) at its existing packaging facility in Rochester, New York, US.
Earlier this year, the company announced a five-year extension of its Research and Development alliance with Polytechnique Montréal.
