Coveris Wins FINAT Sustainability Award

FINAT, the international association for the self-ad- hesive labelling industry, named Coveris this year’s winner of the 2018 FINAT Recycling and Sustainabili- ty Awards at its annual European Label Forum. The jury recognized that the Coveris facility was al- ready recycling more than 6,500 tons of materials that would normally go into the waste stream and this was not only recycled material generated by Cov- eris, but also by its customers. In addition, Coveris has developed the world’s first automated delaminator of waste material to actively address a major obstacle in label material recycling. To swiftly complete the project, and to recycle mater- ial that could not be processed by its own system, Coveris has embraced collaboration with strategic supply chain partners.
