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!

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. The process of recycling cardboard can be energy-intensive, but it is definitely worth it since it can help reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills. Additionally, it can help reduce the amount of natural resources needed to make new cardboard products.
