Channeled Resources achieves LIFE certification

July 6, 2009

The label materials company is the first industry supplier to receive certification.

Channeled Resources Group was awarded LIFE certification after successfully completing an audit conducted by NSF International Strategic Registration in early June. LIFE – Label Initiative or the Environment – is an environmental certification offered exclusively by the Tag & Label Manufacturers Institute (TLMI).

To achieve certification, a company must address each of four categories – clean production, energy and greenhouse gases, product design, and management – containing 31 metrics. LIFE promotes environmental responsibility throughout the labeling industry. Certification necessitates best practices and sustainable products that meet or exceed environmental standards. LIFE enables TLMI members to find cost effective ways to reduce their environmental footprint.

Calvin Frost, Channeled Resources Group CEO, and a long time environmental activist in the label industry, is very proud of his team in Wisconsin that went through the certification process. He says, “Our people worked very hard evaluating our current state, identifying areas that need to be improved, making necessary changes and documenting the process and new procedures. LIFE gives TLMI members the opportunity to implement sustainable initiatives in a cost effective manner.”

Channeled Resources Group, based in Chicago, is a leader in the field of reprocessed specialty paper and film.
