Drawing from our 200+ years of knowledge and experience in the flexible packaging market, 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. Using our 5Rs framework (Reuse, Reduce, Renew, Recycle and Redesign) as a guide, Sun Chemical invests significantly in R&D to improve the eco-efficiency and sustainability of packaging that utilizes its inks, coatings and adhesives to support a circular economy.
Inks, coatings and lamination adhesives may only be 1-3% of a finished package, but while they may be small in volume and weight, they could make or break the sustainability credentials of flexible packaging. Download our infographic to learn:
