Dow Packaging and Specialty Plastics recently announced it has received the Label Life Sustainability Award 2016 from UPM Raflatac. Dow was reportedly recognized for its best-in-class sustainability practices across the industry’s value chain.

Marco Amici, EMEA sustainability marketing leader for packaging, and Courtney Fretz, EMEA sales director, presented The Dow Chemical Sustainability Footprint Tool©, which can help Dow employees and other players in the industry bring sustainability into the innovation process and assess cost-benefits before real investment is undertaken.

“This simple tool helps evaluate innovation projects through different dimensions of sustainability: social, economic, organizational, greenhouse gas emissions, water and resource efficiency,” said Marco Amici. “It also facilitates sustainability education across the company as well as collaboration throughout the whole value chain. I believe all these features combined were key to win this prestigious recognition.”
