About Membership

The Sustainable Packaging Coalition carries out its mission and operates through its dedicated members. We bring together businesses, educational institutions, organizations, and government agencies that make up the entire lifecycle of packaging from sourcing to end-of-life considerations. With the guidance of our SPC staff, we encourage and maintain a collaborative environment with the end goal of advancing and strengthening the business case for more sustainable packaging.

Since 2004, the SPC has been the leading voice on packaging sustainability. By giving our members a space at the table, we continue to build a more sustainable future. Membership provides access to our member directory, published material, technical guides, and reports. In addition to our industry leading annual SPC events, our collaborative space creates an environment to introduce new product ideas and partnership with others within similar supply chain positions.

SPC membership is open to any for-profit company, government agency, or academic institution that complies with the following:

  • Demonstrates a substantial interest in the packaging industry and is directly involved in the manufacture, use, or recovery of packaging
  • Acknowledges the principles embodied in the vision and mission of the SPC and agrees in writing to act in conformance with and support both
  • Agrees in writing to abide by the membership guidelines and antitrust guidelines
  • Stays current in its membership dues to the SPC
  • Is approved for membership by the SPC staff, as advised by the SPC Executive Committee, based upon the foregoing compliance requirements.

GreenBlue recognizes that non-governmental organizations/not-for-profits and business leagues/associations are representative of packaging interests and important resources to the industry and consumers, but GreenBlue is not accepting applications from these organizations at this time. GreenBlue invites these organizations to attend open SPC events and encourages opportunities for open exchanges.

GreenBlue may refuse to renew the membership of any company that it determines, in its sole discretion, has engaged in behavior that harms the SPC or GreenBlue or disrupts the SPC mission. Membership in the SPC does not constitute membership in GreenBlue or in the Board of Directors of GreenBlue. SPC members who are not also members of GreenBlue Board have no voting or other rights in the governance of GreenBlue.
