CGL has been created by the Council of the Great Lakes Region (CGLR) to create a “future without waste” in this binational economic region. Pregis is a founding member and funder of the initiative.

The mission behind the Circular Great Lakes initiative aligns perfectly with the Pregis Purpose to “Protect, Preserve & Inspyre” and its 2k30 sustainability goals. Pregis is committed to achieving circularity through product design and making end of life collection easier for consumers so materials can be brought back through the supply chain through recycling and reuse. The company views this opportunity as a way to collaborate with industry members, academia, material processors and purpose-driven customers to create this circular economy. 

“Pregis has multiple facilities across the Great Lakes region which serve a high concentration of customers. For more than a decade, we have focused on producing protective packaging solutions that minimize impact on the environment by preventing damage and reducing reliance on virgin raw materials. Joining forces with the CGLR, as well as other environmentally-focused organizations, we are able to support and engage our local communities where many employees live and work,” said Kevin Baudhuin, president and chief executive officer, Pregis.
