Transforming Paper Packaging Sustainably With Sun Chemical
Every year, 46 million tons of paper/board packaging waste is produced and only 68.2% of it gets recycled. Now more than ever, the opportunity is before us to reduce that waste and improve recycling rates. Sun Chemical is committed to supporting the paper packaging industry to achieve its sustainability goals with our unique knowledge and 200+ years of experience.
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.
By choosing to operate more sustainably, your print operation will not only play a vital role in helping to reduce waste and lower global CO2 emissions, but it can also cut costs, boost business growth, and significantly enhance public perception.
For the paper packaging market, we have developed inks with the highest bio-renewable content in the market as well as inks and coatings that are recyclable or certified and specified to be compostable. If the sustainability goal converters and brands want to achieve is to print packaging using mono-materials, we have the solutions to help achieve those goals. Our SunEco portfolio of products for the paper packaging market has a wide variety of solutions to help you achieve your sustainability objectives.
