Ranpak Holdings Corp. (“Ranpak”) (NYSE: PACK), a global  leader of environmentally sustainable, paper-based packaging solutions for e-commerce and industrial supply  chains, today announced that all of its European manufacturing facilities have obtained a Chain of Custody  certification from the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC) and that, going forward, packaging products produced  by Ranpak for the European, Middle East and Asia-Pacific markets will be FSC certified. The designation  further solidifies the company’s mission to ‘Deliver a Better World™’. 

Circularity is the ultimate goal for sustainable business operations and using paper packaging produced from  responsibly managed forests helps to close the loop. Ranpak’s packaging materials begin life in responsibly managed forests and, after use, can be readily recycled through the conventional recycling infrastructure or  biodegraded naturally, without causing long-term pollution. 

“At Ranpak, our goal is to help our customers conduct their businesses as sustainably as possible, without  sacrificing efficiency or performance and, by offering FSC-certified products, we further empower our customers  to do exactly that,” said Omar Asali, Chairman & CEO of Ranpak. “Our solutions are extremely important to our  customers, both for the environmental benefits and the positive effects on customer satisfaction and brand  reputation. We are proud to play a key role in reducing the environmental impact of our customers by replacing  their plastic packaging with a better more sustainable solution – paper.” 

The FSC sets standards for responsible forest management, and FSC certification ensures that products come  from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits. A voluntary  program, the FSC uses the power of the marketplace to protect forests for future generations. Today, more than  380 million acres of forest are certified under FSC’s system worldwide. 

“Whether by capturing carbon from the atmosphere or safeguarding biodiversity, responsibly managed forests  are an essential component to a more sustainable future,” said David Murgio, Chief Sustainability Officer at  Ranpak. “By setting and enforcing responsible forestry standards, the FSC is a leader in ensuring that the  world’s forests will continue to play this vital role for generations to come. FSC certification ensures a reliable  and verifiable chain of custody for our products and underscores for our customers that, by using Ranpak  products, they can be part of the solution,” said Murgio. 

Since 1972, Ranpak has been a leading provider of environmentally sustainable, paper-based product  protection solutions in an effort to replace the more than 400 million tons of plastics produced every year. Unlike  plastic, all of Ranpak’s paper packaging materials are renewable, biodegradable and curbside recyclable. 

Ranpak is a member of the Plastic Pollution Coalition, a global alliance working toward a world free of  plastic pollution, and the Sustainable Packaging Coalition, which brings packaging sustainability stakeholders  together to catalyze actionable improvements to packaging systems and lend an authoritative voice on issues  related to packaging sustainability.
