Sun Chemical (Parsippany, NJ) released a new corporate sustainability report, which outlines the company’s sustainability strategy as it relates to operations, products and services, and collaborations.

Sun Chemical organized a corporate sustainability committee in August of 2020 designed to facilitate environmental initiatives. Under this committee, Sun Chemical says it has built a sustainability framework that are guided by “five Rs”: reuse, reduce, renew, recycle and redesign.

The latest report shows Sun Chemical achieved its recent energy and water usage goals, outlining new initiatives that align with the United Nations’ sustainable developmental goals. The initiatives include:

  • a long-term strategic target to reduce CO2 levels by at least 50 percent by 2030, building on the company’s previous target of 30 percent
  • the reduction of water usage by 6 percent compared to 2019
  • the reduction of overall waste sent to landfills by 6.5 percent compared to 2019
  • developing products that decrease overall packaging weight or waste, such as the water-based SunVisto AquaSafe and sheetfed SunPak DirectFood Plus direct-food-contact inks that enable packaging lightweighting by allowing for removal of protective film layers
  • developing proof-of-concepts for collaborative industry projects that contribute to the enhancement of packaging sustainability and recycling, including monomaterial MDO-PE barrier flexible packaging with Elif
