The Traction Five: ESG (Sustainable Packaging)

Neal Silverman

At the core of what we do is help our clients accelerate digital transformation projects and their corporate development, whether that’s through our SaaS application or research services that evaluate what we call “enterprise-ready” emerging technologies. Discovering technologies that solve our clients’ most challenging needs, we come across many early-stage companies that surprise and delight us. Here are a few who have developed game-changing technologies in the area of Sustainable Packaging that we think are worth sharing and keeping an eye on:

This week’s Traction Five:

1 Xampla: Xampla has created the first fully plant-based protein material for commercial use that performs like synthetic polymers but decomposes naturally. They utilize it to develop products such as films and capsules used in packaging and encapsulation.

2 Urthpact: Urthpact developed a 100% compostable, clear bottle product - including the cap and label - from plant-based resins.

3 noissue: Noissue offers a full range of recyclable, compostable, and reusable packaging products including tissue paper, boxes, labels, pouches, tape, and others.  Their manufacturing process and partners follow rigid sustainability guidelines to ensure a minimum carbon footprint and a fully eco-friendly lifecycle.

4 PaperFoam: Their feedstock (industrial starch, fibers, and water) is biobased & renewable, the manufacturing process is energy efficient and low-carbon, and the products are home compostable and naturally break down in weeks with no harmful byproducts.

5 Notpla: Notpla is a revolutionary material made in a sustainable fashion from seaweed and plants which naturally biodegrades in weeks.  It is used in single-use liquid sachets and pipettes, as well as compostable paper, boxes, and containers.

Keeping with our ESG theme, our next Traction Five will be in the area of Carbon Capture and Carbon Accounting technologies.
