Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
This book provides label converters and industry suppliers with information about the environment, sustainability, climate change and waste debate as it affects the label industry, and reviews the legislation, guidelines, directives, protocols and industry initiatives that have been introduced over the past decade. It sets out guidance on how the converter or supplier can establish an environmental management system, implement ISO 14000, EMAS, LIFE or supplier scorecard programs in the areas of materials selection and usage, production performance, carbon emissions, waste management and disposal, life cycle assessment, transport and distribution, and concludes with a chapter on retailer and end-user considerations. Throughout the book there are guideline environmental policy statements that the converter can adapt and use, case study examples of how companies are meeting environment and sustainability challenges, together with flow charts, diagrams and other illustrations that help to analyse and explain environmental solutions. It is hoped that this book will guide the industry towards a more sustainable and hopefully more profitable future. Chapters include:
