Our People

Greif places the utmost importance on protecting, engaging, and developing a diverse workforce.


Greif paper packaging is a net-positive recycler. In simple terms, we recycle more than we make! It helps that most of our paper packaging is made from a renewable and reclaimed source – old corrugated containers. In other words, your old pizza box!

Feeding people means eating up a lot of cardboard

Feeding the demand for fresh produce boxes and more requires a prolific system of recovery for old cardboard. Cardboard is one of the most recyclable materials on the planet, and Greif paper packaging is a net-positive recycler. That means we recycle more paper products than we make.

The Greif mill network churns out countless rolls of paper that get made into brand-new boxes. It’s a circularity success story.

It is then broken down into small pieces and pulped, which turns it into a slurry that is then used to create new cardboard products.

Additionally, it can help reduce the amount of natural resources needed to make new cardboard products.
