Specialty film producer Charter Next Generation (CNG) has received the International Sustainability and Carbon Certificate (ISCC) for its Lexington, KY manufacturing campus. CNG received the ISCC PLUS certification through SCS Global Services, an inspection, verification, testing, and certification company that ensures proper traceability along the supply chain for the usage of circular materials, both recycled and/or bio-based via a mass balance approach.

CNG’s Lexington campus is one of the single-largest extrusion sites in the world with multiple facilities serving key markets such as fresh produce, personal care, e-commerce, dry foods, and protein.
