As 2021 comes to a close, I want to thank Fibre Box Association (FBA) members for their continued support and encouragement. Each year has its own set of challenges and 2021 was no different. This past year, the corrugated industry’s top five issues included Covid-19, plastics substitutions, cybersecurity, extended producer responsibility (EPR) and supply chain concerns. As an association, FBA looked to its member-driven standing committees to act on these issues and others in the areas of technical, safety, health, the environment, and data services. The FBA Board and Executive Committee were very engaged in identifying strategic issues facing the industry and FBA’s role in addressing them. In the end, 2021 was one of FBA’s most productive years for delivering results and value to its members.
Below are a few highlights:
If additional information is needed on any of these topics, please reach out to me or the FBA team for assistance.
On behalf of FBA’s staff, I wish everyone peace, joy and happiness during this holiday season. From my family to yours, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year.
