Sun Chemical has released its 2017 Corporate Sustainability Report, which details the work the company is doing to increase its use of bio-derived raw materials in its products and shows positive progress on its eco-efficiency goals.
Michael Simoni, global product stewardship leader, Sun Chemical, said: “Sun Chemical is committed to doing its part to be a sustainable organisation. We want to show our customers that we are continuously working with suppliers and challenging ourselves to improve the eco-efficiency of our processes and products. Our latest sustainability report shows a variety of exciting ways we’re increasing the use of bio-derived raw materials in our products.”
The report outlines Sun Chemical’s sustainability roadmap which uses a phased approach to improve the eco-efficiency of each production and non-production facilities’ processes and products by monitoring key metrics to understand and manage its environmental impact. Its internal key sustainability metrics measure: energy consumption/conservation, energy carbon footprint, process waste reduction, water consumption, material safety and employee safety.

It is a critical component of our sustainability policy. Our commitment to sustainability drives us to provide our customers with meaningful data that they can use, and in turn help meet their environmental goals.”
