Avery Dennison Label and Packaging Materials Business Unit recently announced it has received the 2011 Environmental Leadership Award from the Tag and Label Manufacturers Institute (TLMI). The award, given by the TLMI Environmental Committee, recognizes the leadership efforts of member companies that consistently demonstrate a commitment to worthy environmental practices. Avery Dennison was previously given the TLMI Environmental Leadership Award in 2008.

“Our commitment to environmental responsibility has carried through to our product strategy, customer relationships and business culture,” said Darrell Hughes, vice president and general manager of Avery Dennison Label and Packaging Materials. “That promise drives us to work collaboratively to create value for our customers by developing solutions that enable the industry to be more sustainable and more competitive.”

Avery Dennison was recognized for its environmental efforts, including reducing waste across the value chain through enterprise lean sigma (ELS); obtaining measurable environmental and economic benefits by applying lifecycle assessment (LCA) to products; creating low-waste, pressure-sensitive labeling and packaging products that use thinner liner and facestock materials; developing new products that help reduce waste and enable recycling; and its next-generation adhesives and facestocks, which are compatible with both polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and glass recycling, allowing labels to be fully removed from the packaging material during the recycling process.
