That forward-thinking legacy continues today under the guidance of Anantshree Chaturvedi, FlexFilms’ vice chairman and CEO. His philosophy for business and for life? “Where focus goes, energy flows.” In this interview, Chaturvedi discusses the “soul” of the company and the issues and developments that center on a circular economy…

  • Major new capital investments for producing biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) and PET (BOPET);

  • Exciting new films using plant-enzyme based biodegradation and nanotechnology;

  • Plastic bans, consequences, and the need for a balanced approach to sustainability.
