INX Releases Inaugural Sustainability Report

Bobst, Partners Win Packaging Europe Sustainability Award

INX International Ink Co. has released its inaugural Sus- tainability Report, offering an overview of the company’s evolving practices. The 36-page report emphasizes INX’s continuing commitment to become a greener company. Since the introduction of a Coloring a Safe and Sus- tainable Future (CSSF) model in 2020 that is aligned with the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Devel- opment, INX has been steadfast with its approach to de- veloping new products and processes, said the company. All North American INX printing facilities have also committed to achieving a significant reduction of GHG emissions by 2030. A priority assessment project helped INX identify En- vironmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) initiatives that were aligned with the CSSF model and integrated into INX’s Sustainability strategy. The report explains the com- pany’s Sustainability strategy, focusing on the three areas of impact within the CSSF model: Product Design for the environment, Process Design for the environment, and So- cial Responsibility. It further details the sustainability attributes of INX’s products, the optimized manufacturing processes sup- porting the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), INX’s identification of six high impact areas, and more.
