FINAT launches new sustainability competitionVictor Alonso
FINAT, the worldwide association for manufacturers of self-adhesive labels and related products has launched a new award to promote environmental sustainability in the label industry to reduce, reuse and recycle.
Sustainability is key to the packaging industry and with the launch of the award, the association will highlight efforts by members to focus on sustainability’s three Rs: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. “There’s an enormous opportunity across the label industry to reduce waste, reuse containers and recycle the materials we use in our products. We know that many of our members are already working hard to reduce their environmental impact, and we want to recognise the initiatives that are making our industry more sustainable,” says Jacques van Leeuwen, head judge and a former recycling consultant for FINAT who is himself a veteran of green initiatives across the label industry.
