Nowadays, working in the manufacturing industry means facing an increasing amount of demands especially in terms of sustainability. Dominating topics are climate change and how industrial processes contribute to the damages done to nature and people alike. A worthwhile and future-oriented concept for achieving environmental as well as economical sustainability is the circular economy: a world where recycling puts an end to waste, especially to toxic waste.
This concept of circular economy is represented by the Cradle-to-Cradle Innovation Product Institute. Their certification program stands for sustainability that takes social, ecological and economic perspectives into account. All adhesives by ALFAPURA® are certified and we can guarantee that our whole value chain has been thoroughly tested – from the extraction of the raw materials to the recyclability of our end products. In this blog post, we will talk about some aspects regarding sustainable production and products. First, we will inform you about eco-friendly materials and how and why to achieve a Cradle-to-cradle Certification®. And second, we will present sustainable solutions for printed products and the packaging industry.
