Printing industry sets sustainability goals for labeling

Printing industry sets sustainability goals for labeling | Sustainable Procurement News | Scoop.it

The Sustainable Green Printing Partnership, (SGP) has set its goals for the print manufacturing on how to acheive higher levels of responsibility and sustainability. The fifth anual SGP Community Day, held in Cincinnati, included in-depth discussions on a wide range of issues that the print and retail industries are facing, specifically with respect to the circular economy, green procurement and recycling. For the cosmetics and personal industry, printing plays a large part in the production of packaging, both for labeling and for the design of secondary packaging.

EcoVadis's insight:

The concept of a ‘Circular Economy’ has been growing in prominence over the past few decades, particularly as corporate social responsibility has become increasingly integrated into mainstream business strategy. This trend is likely to continue as the current linear economic system is challenged by growing resource scarcity.

Globe introduces eSIM in PH 

Globe Telecom continues to be the leader in digital lifestyle by bringing the embedded Subscriber Identification Module (eSIM) to the Philippines. The eSIM removes the use of plastics in SIM activation and contributes greatly to environmental sustainability efforts. Transitioning to eSIM, which removes the need for extra plastic and paper packaging, strengthens the commitment of Globe to support a circular economy by reducing solid waste and avoiding single use plastics getting into landfills.

EcoVadis's insight:

Great Sustainable initiative by Globe. The concept of a ‘Circular Economy’ has been growing in prominence over the past few decades, particularly as corporate social responsibility has become increasingly integrated into mainstream business strategy. Collaborating and innovating with suppliers will be essential to  combating barriers and reaching the potentials of a circular economy, as well as motivating and educating consumers about their purchasing habits and its impact on sustainability.
