Package printers are more than willing to meet customer demands and tout their environmental stewardship, but when it comes to inks, there remains some skepticism that the many “low-VOC” inks advertised by ink manufacturers actually are as environmentally-friendly as they claim. Many want hard facts and figures to prove those claims.

It is for this reason that Sun Chemical developed data-driven methodologies to assess its impact on the environment to use as a guide toward the innovation of processes and products that are more sustainable simultaneously from an economic and environmental dimension.

Sun Chemical’s data-driven metrics have been reported now for three straight years through its annual Sustainability Report and go an extra step in showing how Sun Chemical’s leadership is helping printers adapt to legislative and customer-driven demands, and still be more eco-efficient.

This white paper shows how Sun Chemical collects its data for these reports, utilizes the metrics to benefit customers, and highlights product examples that could help the eco-efficiency of flexible packaging printers.
