TLMI: L.I.F.E. certification for Syracuse Label & Surround Printing
USA New York-based Syracuse Label & Surround Printing has recently become L.I.F.E. certified and that the company is the 52nd facility to achieve this certification. The program was developed in order to assist TLMI members in finding cost effective ways to reduce their companies’ environmental footprint. It is designed specifically for the narrow web marketplace and addresses four key elements of the narrow web printing and converting industry: clean production, energy and greenhouse gases, product and environmentally preferable materials, and management practices. The TLMI L.I.F.E. program is the only certification platform tailored to the specific requirements of the narrow web printing and packaging industry.
Syracuse Label President, Kathy Alaimo, commented on her company’s goals in pursuing the certification, “We have made the decision to pursue L.I.F.E. Certification because it validates our efforts to reduce our impact on the environment and has also resulted in financial savings associated with environmentally friendly practices. This is also a an important mean to differentiate ourselves from our competitors.”
