Sun Chemical’s Approach to Sustainable Metal Packaging
Sun Chemical is committed to supporting the metal packaging industry achieve its sustainability goals.
Our approach to sustainable product development includes risk management and eco-efficiency improvements, as well as a proactive approach in working with suppliers, customers, and industry trade groups to promote best practices.
We’re working to increase the amount of raw materials sourced from bio-renewable sources. For the metal packaging market, some of our inks use soybean oil that comes from fields that have been certified as not replacing other pre-existing natural biodiversity.
Critical to our approach is aligning our goals with those of the United Nations in its Transforming our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, “a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity.”
Our Guide to Sustainable Metal Packaging identifies actions we have taken that align with some of the 17 UN goals below that we believe will have a positive impact in the development of a more sustainable metal packaging industry.
