The Tag and Label Manufacturers Institute (TLMI) has announced that Liverpool, NY-based Syracuse Label & Surround Printing has become LIFE certified and that the company is the 52nd facility to achieve TLMI LIFE certification.
The LIFE program was developed in order to assist TLMI members in finding 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.
The TLMI LIFE program is the only certification platform tailored to the specific requirements of the narrow web printing and packaging industry.
Syracuse Label President Kathy Alaimo comments on her company’s goals in pursuing LIFE certification. “Syracuse Label & Surround Printing made the decision to pursue LIFE certification because it validates our efforts to reduce our impact on the environment and has also resulted in financial savings associated with environmentally friendly practices. We feel it is important to differentiate ourselves from our competitors and LIFE certification demonstrates our commitment to the environment and embodies the sustainable objectives that our customers demand.”
