Four more facilities come to LIFE

January 8, 2013

TLMI has now certified 40 companies through the program.

Four TLMI member company facilities recently achieved LIFE (Label Initiative for the Environment) certification. The program’s newly certified plants include Sussex, WI, USA-based Lauterbach Group; Avery Dennison’s Peachtree City, GA, USA division; and Green Bay Packaging’s Winchester, VA, USA and Green Bay, WI facilities.

The 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.

TLMI President Frank Sablone comments: “These new LIFE certifications mark a significant milestone for the program as the number of certified companies now numbers 40. Three years ago the TLMI Environmental Committee introduced the program to association members and it is thrilling for me, and for the TLMI Board of Directors, to see so many companies benefitting from what the certification process has to offer. The fact that we have companies like Avery Dennison and Green Bay Packaging achieving certification at multiple manufacturing sites only serves to reinforce the tangible benefits LIFE brings to our members.”
