Rockline Sustainability Solutions

Rockline Industries, one of the world's leading manufacturers of coffee filters and consumer, medical and commercial wet wipes, has made significant advances since committing to a focused sustainability program on Earth Day 2008.

“As part of our comprehensive sustainability program and goals, Rockline has recently committed to an even more aggressive near-term carbon reduction goal,” said Randy Rudolph, president of Rockline Industries. “I'm very proud of all our sustainability accomplishments, particularly reducing greenhouse gas intensity by 28% since our program began.”

Looking ahead, Rockline is pledging to reduce absolute Scope 1 & 2 emissions by 50% over the next 10 years when compared to a 2022 baseline year. Scope 1 emissions are direct emissions from Rockline-owned sources, such as the thermal fuels used to heat Rockline's manufacturing sites, and Scope 2 indirect emissions are generated from purchased electricity.

Rockline is not only on track to meet that 50% reduction goal, but to exceed it. As of July 2023, Rockline has successfully sourced green electricity at three of their largest manufacturing facilities, with plans to bring on additional facilities in the coming months.

The organization's 13th annual Sustainability Report, released in February, highlights a 31% reduction in solid waste generated by Rockline's manufacturing facilities, plans to address wastewater reduction efforts, and details about Rockline's dedicated team members who work to achieve progress on all sustainability fronts. “This reflects the depth of our commitment to the environment,” Rudolph added. “We absolutely would not have made the significant progress of the past 15 years without the commitment to sustainability that runs through our whole culture and team.”

The long-term aspirations that guide Rockline's sustainability approach, with progress highlighted each year in the sustainability report, are achieving fossil fuel independence through a shift toward clean, low-carbon energy, minimizing waste and its impact on the environment, and developing ecologically intelligent products that are sustainable.
