Reducing Packaging Materials

We continually evaluate the sustainability of our packaging, and search for innovative ways to reduce packaging, use environmentally friendly materials, and design for recycling or reuse while maintaining product protection and quality. Our environmentally conscious efforts include switching to smaller shipping boxes to use less materials, changing to unbleached shipping boxes with sustainably harvested materials and using biodegradable and recyclable air pouches that protect our products. In addition, we have implemented designs that that minimize package air space and incorporate better insulating materials, efforts that reduced both shipment weight and the amount of dry ice. Our Australian branch is now a member of the Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation (APCO).

Conserving Water

From collecting rainwater for cleaning and irrigating plants in Australia to low-flow faucets and toilets in California and Wisconsin, conserving water is an integral part of how Promega functions. In the last year, water usage decreased by 8% as indexed to revenue. Of note, reusing wastewater from cooling towers at the Feynman Center in Madison, WI, resulted in saving over 500,000 gallons (1.8 million liters) of water in less than six months.
