Actega Unveils Sustainability Commitments

Actega, a manufacturer of specialty coatings, inks, adhesives and sealing compounds for the print and packaging industry, has unveiled its latest strategic commitments toward operating more sustainably and supporting a more sustainable future for the industry.

The company is developing and investing in its facilities and R&D, and working together on a global scale to achieve this goal. 

Actega’s five tactics to achieving circular economy model are recycle, reduce, displace, replace and degrade. Closely linked to tactics one, two and five, an initial raw materials investigation into the carbon footprint of Actega’s products concentrated on selected paper and board coatings. 

These first findings concluded that reducing the carbon footprint of binders within Actega’s water-based products can significantly reduce the products’ overall carbon footprint. This could be achieved by incorporating either exclusively bio-based materials or biomass balanced raw materials (using both the original components and a certain amount of certified renewable feedstock within existing chemical pathways).

Individual Actega facilities are also developing and implementing numerous projects, designed to boost each sites’ environmental credentials. As part of the Let’s Act campaign within the business, teams are working together to minimize their local environmental impact. Such initiatives range from significant investments, like the installation of solar panels at Actega in Vigo, Spain, to utilizing specialized skills within the Lehrte, Germany, team to promote biodiversity and nature at the site, including successfully nurturing six bee colonies.
