Thinner. Stronger. Greener.®

At Paragon Films, sustainability isn’t just part of what we do, it’s who we are. We believe in creating products our customers, stakeholders, and employees can feel good about, so that we can go home at the end of each day knowing the work we did made a difference—to our communities and our planet.

We do this by bringing technology, science, bold ideas, innovation, visionary problem solving, continuous improvement, and optimization into every aspect of what we do—channeling our efforts into a “lifecycle” approach to engineering stretch film. From design and formulation to end user application, we focus on stretch film sustainability at every step. The result is the industry’s thinnest stretch film—a better product that significantly reduces waste and overall carbon footprint. We believe the tagline for our Titus™ handfilm says it best: Thinner. Stronger. Greener. It’s the purpose that drives our practice and our commitment to this cause will never waver.

Darin Tang Paragon Films CEOA Message from Paragon Films CEO Darin Tang

At the heart of Paragon’s mission lies the word, character. It is a word that captures our beliefs, values, and integrity—and makes the sum of these parts visible for the world to see. At Paragon, character excellence takes its strongest form in our daily commitment to stand behind the principles that matter and always do the right thing.

It is in keeping with our character that we now accelerate our initiative to champion the cause of sustainability within the stretch film industry. We believe this is not only essential to corporate responsibility, but also to being a good steward for the environment and the communities we serve.

The strongest pillar of our sustainability platform is reducing use—and we do this better than anyone in the industry by designing stretch film products that feature the thinnest possible gauge to keep the highest possible volume of waste out of landfills. Reducing the plastic thickness of our films makes a real difference, but we know the path to sustainability only begins here.

To acknowledge our commitment, we have added sustainability to our annual goals chart and have hired consultants to help us determine a strategic sustainability approach for 2021 and beyond. This approach includes CDP disclosure, which will set a benchmark for our environmental impact, quantify our progress, and boost our competitive advantage within the industry. We are also currently researching avenues for incorporating post-consumer recycled materials into our stretch film formulas, while preserving and prioritizing our platform for thin-gauge products. We look forward to the results of this research and evaluation phase—not only as it relates to our products, but as we look internally to find new ways of reducing our emissions and energy use in our daily operations.

When it comes to sustainability, Paragon’s goal is to be the standard bearer for the industry. We are a technology leader and we believe now is the time to prioritize being a sustainability leader. We have answered the call and are ready to dedicate our efforts and resources toward building a sustainability culture at Paragon. Why? Because it’s the right thing to do and we owe it to our employees, our stakeholders, our communities, and our planet to champion this responsibility. We look forward to taking this journey with you.
