The EPS Industry Alliance (EPS-IA) was formed in March of 2012, uniting more than 60 companies in the expanded polystyrene (EPS) industry. Leading the industry through key performance and environmental issues, EPS-IA facilitates the development of recycling and awareness communications and programs. Open communication is maintained with Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and other EPS packaging manufacturers around the world to provide up-to-date information on packaging issues that can affect their business operations. EPS-IA also provides the OEM community with the tools and resources necessary to communicate with their consumers.
With a deep commitment to the sustainability of EPS and to protecting our environment, EPS-IA created a proprietary network for the collection, reprocessing and reuse of foam packaging. To further protect the environment, EPS-IA joined CarbonFund.org. Partnership with this organization helps successfully reduce carbon emissions while still allowing business to run effectively and efficiently.
