Sun Chemical recently released its 2018 Corporate Sustainability Report, which focuses on how the company’s commitment to sustainability has led to new products and services that help customers improve their eco-efficiency goals. According to Sun Chemical, the 2018 report shows that it achieved its recent energy and water usage goals.
The report also highlights various initiatives that the company has implemented to increase its overall commitment to developing sustainable solutions for customers, including:
- A long-term strategic target to reduce CO2 levels by at least 30% by 2030
- The reduction of water usage beyond the 32% achieved in 2018
- The identification of areas to improve in driving innovation of sustainable procurements, as highlighted by EcoVadis, a provider of business sustainability ratings
- Its connection to CEFLEX to promote a circular economy for flexible packaging
- Greater levels of bio-renewable content in its products
“Brand owners know that sustainability is critically important to today’s consumers,” said Gary Andrzejewski, corporate vice president of Environmental Affairs for Sun Chemical. “Consumers want brands to partner with suppliers and companies that are equally focused on eco-efficiency in their products during all stages of production, from manufacturing to distribution. Sun Chemical is committed to ensuring the sustainability of its own products by increasing bio-renewable content in our products, improving plant recyclability, and reducing waste.”
“We’re proud of the progress we’ve achieved as a company toward our sustainability goals, but as the industry leaders, we’re determined to push ourselves further,” said Michael Simoni, global product stewardship leader for Sun Chemical. “Developing, manufacturing and distributing sustainable products helps Sun Chemical uphold its reputation for quality, service and innovation while increasing the use of bio-renewable and recyclable materials for our customers.”
The Sun Chemical sustainability report also highlights the company’s policy on good manufacturing practices (GMP), focusing on contamination control and hygiene management for products such as inks for food packaging, pharmaceutical packaging, cosmetics, and hygiene applications. The GMP policies reportedly not only limit contamination risk, but also ensure less waste in facilities.
