Acucote publishes sustainability commitment statement

Coating manufacturer Acucote has published a sustainability statement detailing how it has been incorporating environmentally friendly approach throughout its production plants, material sourcing and corporate culture.

The ‘Protecting our Planet: Acucote’s Commitment to Sustainability’ document details how sustainability has been incorporated throughout the organization and its production plants and describes participation in industry organizations. It delves into product development and provides examples of the company’s sourcing of raw material alternatives and current and future development of products which will contribute to the goals of reducing, recycling, reusing or renewing materials.

‘Acucote understands our corporate environmental responsibility. From the way we work to the products we offer; we’re committed to being stewards of the environment,’ reads the company statement. ‘We are actively launching and seeking raw material alternatives to build more sustainable product lines. We have joined environmental and regulatory committees to ensure we are up to date with our customers’ needs. Internally, we have teams dedicated to ongoing projects designed to reduce Acucote’s environmental footprint.’

‘I’m very proud of the progress that Acucote has made working toward a sustainable culture that resonates soundly with our employees, customers and suppliers,’ said John Leath, CEO of Acucote. ‘It’s important that all companies within the label and packaging industry continue to increase programs that implement processes and develop materials complementary to our global environment. I look forward to continuing this journey and augmenting our portfolio with additional sustainable product offerings in the coming months and years.’

Acucote has dedicated a Continuous Improvement Project team to furthering their progress in the sustainable movement. This team is reviewing 2020 and 2021 projects and will be adding measurements and time frames to support the Acucote Sustainability Commitment. These goals will be published on the Acucote website as they are finalized.

The complete sustainability statement is available on the company’s website.
