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 events 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 the 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.
