Sustainability & Social Responsibility

Sustainability

TechFlex has implemented industry-leading initiatives to help our business grow responsibly.  By increasing energy efficiency and minimizing production waste, TechFlex has significantly reduced its carbon footprint.

Our packaging solutions ship more efficiently than rigid packaging, reducing trucks on the road and diminishing greenhouse gas emissions.  By using solar energy, modern lighting, servo motors and variable speed drives, our facility eliminates wasted energy and creates greener products.  TechFlex is dedicated to environmental responsibility and is proud to be a pioneer in sustainable packaging.


Solar Electric Energy System

In addition to our environmental initiatives, TechFlex has installed an 840 panel, 275 Kw solar power system on the roof of our new production facility.  Our state-of-the-art system, powered by SunPower® E20 series panels, captures up to 50 percent more energy than traditional systems.  We are proud to lead the way in packaging with the most powerful solar technology on the market today.

The TechFlex solar effort will cut down on Greenhouse Gas emissions by 6,738 tons of CO2 over the next 25 years.  That is the equivalent of planting 269,508 trees!  TechFlex is happy to create greener packaging for a greener future.


Social Responsibility – Senate Bill 657

Effective January 1, 2012, Senate Bill 657, the California Transparency in Supply Chain Act of 2010 took effect. The “Act” will require retailers and manufacturers doing business in California to develop, maintain, and implement policies related to their compliance with federal and state law regarding the eradication of slavery and human trafficking from their supply chain.  TechFlex takes social responsibility very seriously.  In compliance with SB657, TechFlex Packaging makes sure that  (1) the company and all suppliers in our supply chain will comply with the laws regarding slavery and human trafficking in the countries in which they do business, and (2) that where slavery and human trafficking is found on the supply chain, we will seek eradication rather than ceasing business in that area or with that supplier.  TechFlex supports the goals of SB657, and takes the following steps to assure compliance:

  1. Require direct suppliers to certify their sourcing materials are in compliance

  2. Maintain internal accountability
