Last week, readers were most drawn to news from Henkel regarding recent recognition for its sustainability efforts (Debatin Names Henkel a Sustainability Champion): “Henkel has been named a Sustainability Champion for its customized adhesive solutions for Anton Debatin GmbH products. Debatin, a producer of packaging materials, mailing bags, and secure packaging, has recognized Henkel’s focus on sustainability to provide a total package that is tailored to the customer and that supports the company’s efforts to conserve resources. Debatin’s packaging, bonded with Henkel products, is used successfully in a wide variety of sectors worldwide. The Sustainability Champion title, which is being awarded for the first time this year, honors a Debatin supplier for particular commitment in the categories of ecological, economic, and social sustainability.

“‘E-commerce has been an absolute core market for the packaging industry—a trend that preceded the surge in online orders during the Covid 19 pandemic. Logistics and converting processes, as well as the product solutions used, must take this development into account, alongside increasing customer demand for greater sustainability,’ said Erhan Eker, head of sales DACH for Packaging Adhesives at Henkel.”
