FINAT announced the winners of its 2022 Sustainability Awards during a ceremony at the FINAT Technical Seminar 2022 held in Barcelona, Spain, on November 23.
This year five initiatives were entered in the competition, covering innovative paper-based labels, renewable energy generation, decorations optimized for environmental impact, and compostable flexible packaging.
The jury judged the submitted data for its demonstration of improved environmental and social impact, achievements, relevance, cooperation along the value chain and overall uniqueness.
The Jury decided to award two initiatives among the received ones, in the categories of Converter Small & Medium, and Converter Large.
Securikett Ulrich & Horn won in the category of Converter Small & Medium with its entry IT’S PAPER series – VOID Labels and VOID Tapes. The initiative was prized by the jury for incorporating renewable content, contributing to the recyclability of packaging including security features, and for providing a unique solution that replaces film with fibre-based materials.
All4Labels Group won in the Converter Large category with its initiative Starshine. The jury cited the reduced environmental impact of the products, including a reduction of use of hazardous materials, reduced energy consumption and the elimination of plastic filmic materials required for the process. The initiative is the result of cooperation within the organization, from R&D and sustainability to marketing and sales.
