New ISO Standards Coming to Packaging Industry

Nature Earlier this week Danielle Jerschefske reported on the Labels and Labeling blog that new ISO standards are being developed for the packaging industry. This is good news for consumers and for environmentally friendly label and packaging companies. It is bad news for those companies in our industry who don''t believe in sustainable business practices. Jerschekse points out that both consumers and packaging companies in Europe are more aware of the impact that their choices have on the environment than in this country. But having an organization such as ISO bring some standards specific to the label and packaging industry will help raise awareness worldwide. This combined with the work of the Sustainable Packaging Coalition and the Tag and Label Manufacturers Institute will help motivate companies to adopt more sustainable practices. I am confident that in the next few years a nationwide sustainability movement will ensure that all label printing companies will think of the environmental impact of the labels and packaging they produce. Consumers will soon demand it. Photo courtesy of Bruno Monginoux
