Project Horizon

Investing in URB

Sonoco has invested $125 million to strengthen our uncoated recycled paperboard mill system in the U.S. and Canada. The majority of the URB investment – known as Project Horizon – includes transforming the company’s Hartsville, S.C., corrugated medium machine into a state-of-the-art URB machine with annual production capacity of approximately 180,000 tons.

We look forward to bringing our customers a wide variety of high-value URB grades.

Sustainable Packaging Solutions

Responsible Sourcing, Impactful URB Products

All but two of our 23 global paperboard mills use 100% recycled fibers in their production. Sonoco is committed to responsible use of natural resources through responsible sourcing, recycling, and use of recycled fiber in our paper-based packaging. Sonoco's mills throughout Europe, the U.S., Canada, Brazil, China, and Mexico (Atizapan), are certified to one or more fiber certification programs. These are: the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®), Sustainable Forest Initiative® (SFI®) and the Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification® (PEFC®) Chain of Custody and Due Diligence System Standards.
