The paper outlines the environmental challenges faced by the industry past, present and future, and examines how Flint Group Packaging Inks, through the actions of its task force, can provide sustainable solutions, insight and collaboration for its key stakeholders.
According to the company, there are four core areas of activity where Flint Group Packaging Inks is supporting the supply chain to become more circular, while at the same time adding value. These include addressing sustainability concerns on a broad scale, supporting converter operations, solving recycling complexities and delivering greater industry networking and partnership to drive change and innovation.
Deanna Klemesrud, global marketing director, brand and promotion, says, “Sustainability is not simply a buzzword that is going to disappear in a year or two, despite the disruption brought by the COVID-19 pandemic. It is now at the heart of every industry and sector globally and is what will determine the future success of our industry. When the global economy begins to recuperate from the virus’ effects, our industry has a unique opportunity to ensure sustainable packaging forms an irreplaceable part of the recovery. As awareness of the human impact on the environment has evolved, consumers have become increasingly concerned about packaging and its role in waste and pollution.
“Flint Group Packaging Inks has a very clear commitment towards bringing about positive environmental change in the industry, and sustainability is deeply engrained in our values and how we do business each and every day," she adds. "In our new white paper, we highlight the work our Sustainability Task Force is undertaking with our customers and partners to create a unique journey that is responsive to their own needs and allows them to benefit from our expertise and innovation to bring about change to their processes and operations.”
The Sustainability Task Force comprises 13 employees located around the globe, at all levels of the Flint Group Packaging Inks business.
