– September 11-13, 2012 – In order to showcase its efforts in sustainability, Sun Chemical will be an advertising sponsor of Ecovillage, a small pavilion at Labelexpo Americas 2012 which specifically highlights technologies that reduce waste in the label and narrow web market.
The Ecovillage location at Labelexpo will allow Sun Chemical to spotlight its 2011 sustainability report, which expands on its established data-driven metrics by showcasing how the company’s leadership in sustainability is helping customers adapt and be more eco-efficient.
“Our sustainability policy pushes us as a company to improve the eco-efficiency of our processes and products,” said Gary Andrzejewski, Sun Chemical’s Corporate Vice President of Environmental Affairs. “Our R&D efforts are an integral part of this process as we provide our customers with eco-friendly and money-saving solutions. This data-driven sustainability report plays a key role in helping our customers achieve their eco-efficiency goals.”
The 2011 Sun Chemical Sustainability Report highlights Sun Chemical’s leadership role in sustainable ink technology. The report focuses on helping customers minimize the environmental impact of printing processes while maximizing their profits.
The report offers seven key metrics customers can use to unlock their company’s eco-efficiency potential: energy consumption/conservation at production and non-production sites, the energy carbon footprint at the production sites, process waste reduction, water consumption, materials safety, and employee safety.
