Zume Recognized By Business Intelligence Group with Sustainability Leadership Award

By: WebWire

CAMARILLO, Calif. (September 6, 2022) - Zume, the global sustainability solutions company creating molded-fiber substitutes for single-use plastics, today announced its recognition as a winner of Business Intelligence Group's 2022 Sustainability Awards for the Sustainability Leadership Award. The Sustainability Awards honor people, teams, and organizations who have made sustainability an integral part of their business practice or overall mission – serving to highlight the exemplary accomplishments of leaders as they work to reduce their impact on our environment.

Zume offers molded-fiber replacements to plastic that are certified compostable. The company's manufacturing equipment system and technology make it affordable and easy for Quick Service Retail (QSR) brands to switch from plastic to a molded-fiber alternative, without disrupting their supply chain-manufacturing processes or bottom line.

The award comes on the heels of Zume's recent announcement that it has joined forces with Transcend, a UK-based sustainable packaging company, bringing molded-fiber products on a large scale to Europe. With partnerships like this, Zume is actively leading the way in converting up to $20B worth of single-use plastic packaging to molded fiber.

“We're on a mission to help the $390B single-use packaging industry evolve to a more sustainable future, so to be recognized by the Business Intelligence Group is not only an honor but a powerful recognition of momentum in our society to transition to sustainable alternatives,” said Alex Garden, Chairman and CEO of Zume. “We applaud the other winners who are making a sustainable future a priority.”

“We are proud to reward and recognize Zume for their sustainability efforts,” said Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer, Business Intelligence Group. “It was clear to our judges that their vision and strategy will continue to deliver results toward a cleaner, more sustainable world. Congratulations!”

Zume's viable packaging solution is made from many different global fibers including bamboo, wheat, and straw. Plant material uses significantly less water and energy and reduces CO₂ emissions when compared to the production and disposal of plastic packaging. Unlike plastic, plant-based material is 100% biodegradable and simply breaks down after use. Zume sees a future where single-use plastic packaging is a part of our past.
