We believe there is a responsibility and an opportunity for businesses to contribute to a more sustainable future. What is our vision at Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions, and how are we supporting our customers?
What does Sustainability mean within Avery Dennison?
Our focus on sustainability has evolved over many years, but since 2015 we have been trying to think 10 years ahead when planning our sustainability strategy and setting concrete goals at a global level.
Avery Dennison’s view of sustainability is holistic, because sustainability encompasses more than just the products we sell. It also includes social responsibility, diversity and inclusion in our workplace. Sustainability is integrated into all our functions. It affects how we design products, how we source our raw materials, how we understand our customer's needs within our commercial teams, and of course how we manufacture our products. An external focus is also important: we take our responsibility as a producer in the graphics business very seriously, so we make sure to look beyond our own four walls.
We tackle industry-wide challenges by working with customers and other value chain partners and believe that education, transparency and collaboration are the keys to success.
