SCG Packaging (SCGP) has invited more than 40 companies from across the globe to collaborate in “elevating” the environmental friendliness of packaging solutions.
SCGP, a fully integrated packaging chain in Southeast Asia, intends to work with international companies to collectively ensure eco-friendly practices at every stage in the supply chain.
These stages in the supply chain start from the sourcing of raw materials to packaging design, technology advancement, recycling methods and finally delivery to customers.
This effort is expected to promote the development of sustainable packaging and contribute to a circular economy.
SCGP also highlighted this initiative during a recently held seminar entitled SCGP Circularity in Action: Pursuit of Packaging Sustainability.
It was attended by a number of companies and sustainable packaging partners.

SCGP Consumer and Performance Packaging Business COO Karan Tejasen stated: “The seminar is the starting point for gathering partners to collaboratively find sustainable packaging solutions that meet the diverse needs of customers and applications while also caring for society and the environment.
“SCGP plans to continuously develop technology and innovation for environmentally friendly packaging, whether rigid or flexible packaging, to align with the company’s policy and encourage product manufacturers to use various types of packaging to jointly develop both internally and with SCGP.
“All these efforts aim to allow SCGP to achieve quality growth, move towards the goal of achieving net zero by 2050, and most importantly, to promote a sustainable society and environment.”
The collaboration will further ensure that the packaging is recyclable and durable.
Dow Thailand Commercial and Carbon Business Development vice-president Supot Katetopragran said: “Our sustainable vision aligns with SCGP, and we have collaborated on various projects, such as the development of easily recyclable and thinner but stronger rice bags for the Royal Umbrella brand.
“The initiative addresses both waste reduction and carbon reduction and is in line with Dow’s commitment to helping our customers achieve carbon neutrality.”
