Sustainability is key to the packaging industry, and it is one of the 6 pillars of FINAT’s strategy.

The 2021 FINAT Sustainability Award recognizes the efforts of the self-adhesive label vale chain to reduce, reuse and recycle.

For instance: are you working on initiatives that lead to a reduction of label material used or waste generated? Are you implementing processes to facilitate the reuse of labelled containers? Or maybe somehow improving the recycling of labelled containers?

If yes, we invite you to share your initiative with the FINAT members to be recognized for your efforts. The winners will be interviewed in a showcase video, and the initiative will be featured in an article in a leading sector publication, as well as on the FINAT website and events. Honourable mentions will also be recognized!

To apply, simply submit the details of your initiative in the online form (see link above) make sure that we get all the details before August 31st! The competition is open to label converters, suppliers and brand owners. We encourage initiatives showing high industry potential, cooperation along the value chain and originality to apply!
