Neenah Expands Sustainability Efforts by Earning Nine USDA Certified Biobased Product Labels


ALPHARETTA, Ga.-- Neenah, Inc. (NYSE: NP) proudly achieves nine verified U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Certified Biobased Products in their durable label solutions lineup as further evidence of its commitment to sustainability efforts.

With this third-party verification, various DISPERSA®, ENDURA®, and PREVAIL® durable label and board products have earned the ability to display a unique USDA label highlighting their biobased content ranging from 68-99%.

“Neenah is extending our rich history of sustainable products, partnerships, and certifications into our performance labels portfolio,” says Vishal Rao, Vice President for Neenah Industrial Solutions. “While product functionality remains key, customers increasingly factor environmental impact into their decision criteria. The USDA Certified Biobased Product label on these products highlights the renewable nature of the raw materials as a critical advantage of our durable label products, beyond their industry-leading functionality.”

The USDA Certified Biobased Product label displays a product's biobased content, which is the portion of a product that comes from a renewable source, such as plant, animal, marine, or forestry feedstocks. Renewable, biobased materials displace the need for non-renewable petroleum-based chemicals and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that exacerbate global climate change.

“Achieving this USDA third-party verification for our products is part of a long-term environmental strategy of making eco-investments over time to enrich our overall offering for our customers,” concludes Rao.
