Carton Council of Canada (CCC) is a coalition of carton manufacturers working together to deliver long-term solutions to help increase carton recovery and recycling in Canada.
CCC was established in 2010. Through the Carton Council of Canada, carton manufacturers Elopak, Evergreen Packaging, Tetra Pak and SIG Combibloc seek to further reduce the environmental impact of their products. CCC replicates similar associative models that have been put in place, including the Alliance for Beverage Cartons and the Environment (ACE) in Europe, and the Carton Council of North America.
Carton Council of Canada provides a platform for carton manufacturers in Canada to benchmark and profile cartons as renewable, recyclable and low-carbon packaging solutions. CCC helps increase carton recovery and recycling in Canada by:
- Financing and producing carton-recycling awareness campaigns
- Providing consulting services to optimize sorting processes
- Financing pilot projects
- Connecting sellers and buyers of carton bales
