Sun Chemical has unveiled the 2017 Corporate Sustainability Report on its work in increasing the use of bio-derived raw materials in its products and shows positive progress on its eco-efficiency goals. Sun Chemical is a leading producer of printing inks, coatings and supplies, polymers, liquid compounds, solid compounds, and application materials.

Highlights from the report focus on Sun Chemical’s commitment to the development of eco-friendly solutions, including how solvent-based liquid inks use resins responsibly sourced from certified forests, how water-based liquid inks use bio-derived resins that do not impact ink performance, how printed biosensor technology detects levels of pyruvates in onions to determine pungency, how bio-based food colorants are using spirulina derived from photosynthetic bacterium, and how its MirrorTech inks reduce waste by replacing metallised board with printable metallic ink.

The report outlines Sun Chemical’s sustainability roadmap which uses a phased approach to improve the eco-efficiency of each production and non-production facilities’ processes and products by monitoring key metrics to understand and manage its environmental impact. Its internal key sustainability metrics measure: energy consumption/conservation, energy carbon footprint, process waste reduction, water consumption, material safety, and employee safety.

Michael Simoni, global product stewardship leader, Sun Chemical said, “Sun Chemical is committed to doing its part to be a sustainable organisation. We want to show our customers that we are continuously working with suppliers and challenging ourselves to improve the eco-efficiency of our processes and products. Our latest sustainability report shows a variety of exciting ways we’re increasing the use of bio-derived raw materials in our products.”

Gary Andrzejewski, corporate vice president, environmental affairs, Sun Chemical said, “Improving our manufacturing processes from production to distribution helps Sun Chemical uphold its reputation for quality, service and innovation while improving sustainability practices for our customers. It is a critical component of our sustainability policy. Our commitment to sustainability drives us to provide our customers with meaningful data that they can use, and in turn help meet their environmental goals.” (GK)
