Avery Dennison has reaffirmed its sustainability commitments with the adoption of the Carbon Trust footprint solution. This bespoke carbon footprint tool created in collaboration with the Carbon Trust will allow the global materials science leader to continue its drive towards transparency and continuous improvement in environmental impact measurement and reporting on its products for the labelling and packaging industry.
The Carbon Trust will present information and insights with the use of verified primary data from Avery Dennison’s suppliers and operations to accurately measure the impact of current and future products. It will also enable Avery Dennison to advance efforts in meeting its 2030 sustainability goals and provide more certainty for guidance on customer product selections and new product development.
The Carbon Trust is intended to provide information on the carbon and water footprint specific to Avery Dennison’s label products. With key learnings and takeaways from the tool’s initial implementation, it will progressively broaden its data with additional product information availability.
“As a company, we’ve monitored and assessed the sustainability of our products for the past 10 years, and this is another important step forward in our goal to provide the most accurate information to our customers,” says Claudia Mariconda, Global Director Sustainability, Materials Group, Avery Dennison. “By implementing the Carbon Trust tool, we facilitate further transparency and offer customers a more trustworthy assessment of our label products’ impacts.”
