Environmentally Viable Label Materials

We’re committed to offering self-adhesive labels that are sustainably sourced, recyclable and economically viable. We now have over 300 FSC certified materials in our portfolio, including wine labels and filmic materials.

What is FSC certification?

The Forrest Stewardship Council (FSC) was established independently in 1990, when concerns about accelerating deforestation, environmental degradation and social exclusion reached a peak. The organisation went on to establish a system that could credibly identify well-managed forests as the sources of responsibly produced wood products.

FSC runs a global forest certification system with two key components: Forest Management and Chain of Custody certification. This system allows us as consumers to identify, purchase and use label materials that are produced from well-managed forests.

What does this mean for our customers?

Sustainability and ethical packaging is a priority for many of our customers. Our environmental policy of offering recycled, recyclable, biodegradable and thinner self-adhesive labels supports their greener packaging initiatives. This in turn can improve sustainability and reduce our impact on the environment.

We are also actively committed to:
  • Reducing manufacturing waste
  • Implementing greener, more efficient working practices
  • Searching for more environmentally friendly products and printing techniques
  • Working closely with suppliers who can demonstrate their commitment to the environment
