Our Mission

Creating innovative solutions that reduce waste and revolutionise packaging to help solve the environmental crisis.

Our Agenda

We have mapped out the best plan to help us measure our progress and reach our targets by 2030.

2025 Agenda

By 2025, we aim to save 5 million trees by innovating with all our partners and help reduce their overall carbon footprint in the process.


Each metric ton of envoPAP helps save 50 trees from being chopped down for paper and packaging production. Going by that formula, we’ve saved over 800,000 trees since 2015.

2030 Agenda

By 2030, we aim to save 10 million trees across the globe and also empower 1000+ people by providing job opportunities and donating profits towards sustainable development.

Our History

envoPAP’s journey began at the University at Southampton when it became apparent to our founder Kaushal that the paper and packaging industry needed disruption. Reducing the burden on earth caused by paper and packaging production was at the forefront of Kaushal’s mind when he started considering truly sustainable innovation, instead of green-washed products. Using abundantly available agricultural waste as raw material, instead of traditional wood pulp in paper and packaging production, we created our first commercial product in 2015. Although paper is a widely used commodity that contributes to 40% of deforestation worldwide, every envoPAP product saves trees from being chopped down while performing the exact same function without the environmental costs.

We believe in embracing sustainability at every level of our company, from the technicalities of production to the ethical treatment of our employees so that we fully honour our commitment to the 2030 UN Sustainable Development Goals. We challenge conventional paper production every day in order to innovate beyond the constraints of traditional production to ensure a sustainable future. Contrary to the linear "take, make, dispose" way of living, envoPAP believes in the circular principle of creating wealth from waste.
