Sun Chemical Issues “Green” Report


PARSIPPANY, NJ | Sun Chemical recently released its 2011 sustainability report, which expands on its established data-driven metrics by showcasing how the company’s leadership in sustainability is helping customers adapt and be more eco-efficient.

“We’re now going beyond providing meaningful data that will help meet customer goals,” says Gary Andrzejewski, Sun Chemical’s corporate VP of Environmental Affairs. “We are showing concrete examples of things we are doing to help customers produce less waste and carbon dioxide, while at the same time improving the efficiency of their operations.”

Included in the report is information on Sun Chemical’s role in offering low-migration inks for use on food packaging as the regulatory landscape in Europe in this area has changed dramatically. Other products and services mentioned in the report include: SunGraphics SunLite in-position printing plates for corrugated carton printers; the Sun dispenser program for the commercial and label, narrow web market; and SunClean/SunWash cleaner and wash technology for heatset printers.

The key sustainability metrics measured in the data include: energy consumption/conservation at production and non-production sites, the energy carbon footprint at the production sites, process waste reduction, water consumption, materials safety, and employee safety.
