The Tag and Label Manufacturers Institute, Inc. (TLMI) recognized Constantia Flexibles for their Environmental Leadership during TLMI’s annual Awards dinner.
TLMI’s Environmental Leadership Award recognizes both a converter and a supplier member each year that consistently demonstrated a commitment to progressive environmental practices across a range of areas. These include solid waste reduction, recycling, waste, or energy recovery, the implementation of a new ‘clean’ technology and/or process, or the implementation of an educational program.
This year Constantia Flexibles was recognized for SpearRC®, a cost-effective pressure sensitive label that is recognized by both the Association of Postconsumer Plastics Recycling (APR) and the European PET Bottle Platform (EPBP) to be fully compatible with the PET recycling process.
This is the second time that Constantia Flexibles had been awarded the TLMI’s Environmental Leadership Award. In 2009, Spear/Constantia Flexibles was awarded the award for their SpearEARTH® program. SpearEARTH®, was and still is Spear/Constantia’s global corporate program that addresses source reduction, recycling, eco-friendly materials, processing, supply chain involvement and external validation.
