SHEBOYGAN, Wis.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Rockline Industries, one of the world’s largest private-label
manufacturers of coffee filters and consumer, medical and commercial wet
wipes, today released its seventh annual Sustainability Report, which
outlines the company’s performance relative to the 2015 environmental
sustainability goals. The company also announced a new set of 2020 goals
designed to demonstrate Rockline’s continued commitment to
sustainability.

Among the key accomplishments highlighted in the report is a 21%

years, the company has focused on energy efficiency and invested in

projects, smart compression systems, the adoption of battery-electric

in greenhouse gas emissions.

Rockline also announced a new set of sustainability goals, building upon
the success of the past six years. These 2020 goals target further
reductions in energy, greenhouse gas, water, solid waste, landfill and
emissions from outbound transportation.

our core values and our commitment to sustainability,” said Randy
Rudolph, president of Rockline Industries. “We are proud of the work we
do every day to strengthen our company and create a better world for us
all.”
