FIAUK Diamond Plus partner, Sun Chemical, has released its latest sustainability report, highlighting initiatives and results based on three pillars of its business: operations, products and services, and collaborations.
To guide its sustainability practices and roadmaps in each of the three pillars, Sun Chemical follows a strategic framework called the ‘five Rs’— Reuse, Reduce, Renew, Recycle and Redesign—which supports a circular economy and reductions in carbon footprint.
The operations section of the report shows how Sun Chemical’s recent acquisitions and additional manufacturing facilities affected overall energy and water consumption. The data highlights that despite the acquisitions, the quantities of waste incinerated without energy recovery and landfill waste continued to decrease since the last report.
“Sun Chemical’s ongoing efforts to strive for continuously improving results in waste, water, and energy reduction drive decisions and actions throughout our operations,” said Gary Andrzejewski, Corporate Vice President, Environmental Affairs, Sun Chemical.
“Our focus on decreasing energy usage, which last year included investing in solar arrays and heat recovery systems, is a key sustainable strategy that is especially important as we integrate acquisitions into our operations.”
For every sustainability report that is downloaded, Sun Chemical will plant a tree through the established nongovernmental organization, One Tree Planted.
