Sun Chemical Monitors Regulatory Changes Globally and Helps Brands Comply with the Latest Updates

Serious environmental issues are resulting in an increasing focus on sustainability in recent years. From contributions to overall global waste and pollution and natural resources being depleted at rates faster than they can be replaced, to the damaged ozone layer and increased evidence of climate change, the question of how to minimize our environmental impact is more urgent than ever before.

Government bodies are certainly hard at work doing their part to protect the health and safety of their citizens and reducing carbon emissions by researching and updating regulations governing food packaging. These changes happen regularly in every country across the globe.

Non-compliance to the latest regulations could come with severe consequences, namely the threat of a brand’s reputation and more seriously, the health of consumers. As a leader in regulatory and compliance issues, Sun Chemical works closely with customers to help them comply with the strict standards required by brand owners and regulations.

Backed by a significant investment in research and development, Sun Chemical places a priority in the care required in procurement and the selection of raw materials used to formulate our products. In fact, Sun Chemical uses a balanced scorecard approach to evaluate suppliers’ environmental performance, helping to ensure that suppliers remain vigilant in developing new technology that reduces the overall environmental footprint of their products.

Sun Chemical strives to be active with suppliers and various industry associations that are dedicated to corporate social responsibility and responsible material sourcing, such as EcoVadis, the Responsible Mica Initiative and the responsible Sustainable Palm Oil Organization, ensuring that Sun Chemical’s suppliers are as committed to sustainability and regulatory compliance as we are.
