Siegwerk, one of the leading global providers of printing inks and coatings for packaging applications and labels, has been shortlisted in two categories of the Packaging Europe Sustainability Awards and is also in the running in three categories of the Sustainable Packaging News Awards.
In the Packaging Europe Sustainability Awards, Siegwerk was selected as a finalist in two categories: the Recyclable Packaging category for a deinking and delamination primer solution, and in the Recyclable Packaging Pre-Commercialized category, where Siegwerk and Henkel are finalists for a co-developed oxygen barrier coating for food packaging.
This follows on the success of last year’s awards, when Siegwerk won three awards, including being selected as the overall winner of 2022.
“Siegwerk is fully committed to enabling sustainability across the value chain. This confirms that we are on the right track,” said Alina Marm, Siegwerk’s Global head of Sustainability and Circular Economy.
In the Sustainable Packaging News Awards, Siegwerk’s solutions are included in three categories: the Resource Efficiency category for the UniNATURE barrier coating with 100% natural content, in the Circular Economy category for a printable tunable light barrier coating that can be tailored to work with existing recycling streams, and in the Recyclable Packaging Innovation category for a recyclable pouch co-created with ExxonMobil, Henkel, Kraus Folie, and Windmöller & Hölscher.
The award winners for both competitions will be announced in November of 2023.
