Sun Chemical helping customers to be greener

While Sun Chemical continues to be data-driven in its sustainability efforts by reporting the performance measurement for seven key sustainability metrics as outlined in its previous reports, its 2011 sustainability report expands on this commitment by citing specific examples of how its products, services and projects are helping customers improve their environmental impact.

“We’re now going beyond providing meaningful data that will help meet customer goals,” says corporate vice president of environmental affairs Gary Andrzejewski.

“We are showing concrete examples of things we are doing to help customers produce less waste and carbon dioxide while improving the efficiency of their operations.”

As the regulatory landscape in Europe around the use of printing inks on food packaging has changed dramatically, Sun Chemical was the first company to offer low migration inks and provide best practice guides to help printers comply with the regulations. Additional products and services mentioned in the report include: SunGraphics SunLite In-Position Printing Plates for corrugated carton printers; Sun Chemical Dispenser Program for the commercial and label, narrow web market; SunMag Synergy ink/fount emulsion system for publication printers; and SunClean/ SunWash cleaner and wash technology for heatset printers.

“Our sustainability policy pushes us to improve the eco-efficiency of our processes and products,” continues Andrzejewski. “Our R&D efforts are a pivotal part of this process as we provide customers with solutions that will be eco-friendly and save them money.”
