Membership Application

MEMBERSHIP APPLICATIONIf you are interested in applying for SPC membership, please review the member eligibility requirements. If your organization is eligible, you may submit an application for membership. Your application will be shared with the SPC Executive Committee for review. Once GreenBlue approves your application, you will receive an email confirming your membership. This process will take two to three weeks.
ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTSSPC membership is open to any for-profit company, government agency or academic institution that complies with the following:
  • demonstrates a substantial interest in the packaging industry and is directly involved in the manufacture, use or recovery of packaging;
  • completes a membership application;
  • acknowledges the principles embodied in the vision and mission statements of the SPC and agrees in writing to act in conformance with and support both;
  • agrees in writing to abide by the membership guidelines and antitrust guidelines;
  • stays current in its membership dues to SPC;
  • is approved for membership by GreenBlue, as advised by the SPC Executive Committee, based upon the foregoing compliance requirements.

GreenBlue recognizes that non-governmental organizations/not-for-profits and business leagues/associations are representative of packaging interests and important resources to the industry and consumers, but GreenBlue is not accepting applications from these organizations at this time. GreenBlue invites these organizations to attend open SPC meetings and encourages opportunities for open exchanges.

GreenBlue may refuse to renew the membership of any company that it determines, in its sole discretion, has engaged in behavior that harms the SPC or GreenBlue or disrupts the SPC mission. Membership in SPC does not constitute membership in GreenBlue or in the Board of Directors of GreenBlue. SPC members who are not also members of GreenBlue Board have no voting or other rights in the governance of GreenBlue.

To begin the application process, please search by organization name to ensure your organization is not already a SPC member. You will then be able to submit your application online.
