Hagerstown, MD-based Hub Labels has recently been awarded LIFE (Label Initiative for the Environment) certification from TLMI. The Project LIFE program was developed in order to assist TLMI members to find cost effective ways to reduce their companies’ environmental footprint. LIFE is a program designed specifically for the narrow web marketplace and addresses four key elements of the narrow web printing and converting industry: clean production, energy and greenhouse gases, product and environmentally preferable materials and management practices.
Frank Sablone, TLMI president, comments, “I would like to congratulate Hub Labels on their recent TLMI LIFE certification. Hub marks the 33rd company facility that has achieved LIFE certification and the TLMI Board of Directors predicts that by the end of 2012 more than 40 companies will be LIFE certified. As brand owners continue to prioritize greening the supply chain, narrow web converters are recognizing the importance of certification and of positioning themselves as companies that truly value environmental stewardship.”
TLMI is a member-driven, progressive association that provides forums to address issues critical to the success of the tag and label, packaging, and converting industries in the North American marketplace.
