Our Sustainability Policy
At Sun Chemical, it is our responsibility to raise awareness about environmental issues that are part of our industry, including regulatory and consumer driven forces. Given that responsibility, we continue to develop methodologies to assess our impact and innovate processes and products that are more sustainable from both an economic and environmental standpoint.
We have in place a rigorous development process and analytical tools that guide our choice of materials and the safety of our products. We strive to use manufacturing processes that demonstrate environmental excellence through lower waste generation, lower energy and water usage, and strong safety performance as measured by several key metrics:
- greenhouse gas emissions,
- energy and water consumption,
- carbon footprint, and
- safety records.
We commit to meet local regulatory requirements and proactively work with the government, industry trade groups, and business partners in the value chain to better define, measure, and promote sustainability.
Product stewardship and risk management are also important components of our sustainability policy. We are committed leaders in this area and will continue to take a responsible analytical-based approach in our efforts.
The result of all of our efforts is our ability to provide our customers with eco-efficiency and, in turn, enhance the sustainability of their processes and end products. Using our long-standing reputation for quality, service, and innovation, our dedication to improving sustainability influences both our daily work and our strategic direction across the globe.
“As the world’s largest producer of inks, pigments and coatings, we are the materials leader in the graphic arts industry. As such, we are committed to lead in establishing analytical protocols and high operational and product performance for sustainability. The markets, in which we participate, with our influence, should strive to set a standard for resource efficiency, safety and environmental protection. At Sun Chemical, we are constantly looking for ways to make our customers profitable and responsible leaders.”
