Consolidated Label Company has published a report on sustainability trends in the label industry to help consumers better understand how some in the industry are responding to environmental concerns. The report also offers advice to label customers on things to consider before getting started with eco-friendly labels like budget, product compatibility and available options.

The report defines sustainability as a strategy that drives long-term corporate growth and profitability by mandating the inclusion of environmental and social issues into the business model. The report mainly focuses on the role of sustainability in the label industry and what’s being done to address various environmental issues.

“After receiving the LIFE (Label Initiative for the Environment) certification from the Tag and Label Manufacturing Institute (TLMI), we thought it was important to share our insights on sustainable label practices to help others better meet their own environmental goals,” says Joel Carmany, president of Consolidated Label. From types of label materials to internal processes, sustainability can represent different things in the label industry.

Sustainability trends covered in the report include: recyclable labels and the development of new eco-friendly label materials; environmental certifications and programs that assess and monitor green initiatives; mproving energy efficiencies and decreasing waste output with more streamlined processes; internal green initiatives that promote sustainability and conservation, such as employee recycling programs.
