Environmental management is a core value of our Company. We are committed to implementing company wide environmental and chemical management systems to achieve environmental compliance and sustainability. It’s been part of the DNA of Appvion from the start.

As market leaders we introduced the world’s first carbonless paper, NCR PAPER* Brand. With the removal of the carbon ply, we proudly introduced a 100% recyclable product back in 1954 providing a lower environmental impact. We were one of the first to remove BPA from our Thermal products to improve product safety and sustainability attributes. We do not use any solvents in our coating technologies, only water based, which is more harmonious with the environment.


Innovation is the key to developing new products that provide a sustainable future. Some of our many product highlights include:


Appvion has produced BPA-Free products since 2006.

All of our carbonless products are 100% recyclable and use more environmentally friendly vegetable oil-based capsules.
