Asahi Photoproducts has announced it has achieved carbon neutral certification in partnership with the Carbon Trust for its AWP-DEW CleanPrint water-washable flexographic plates in compliance with PAS 2060. This certification is renewed on a regular basis; with each renewal period, carbon reduction requirements escalate, with the goal of reducing the actual carbon footprint of the certified product, from sourcing raw materials through packing and shipping the product, its use at the customer site, and its disposition at end of life.
ʺWe are proud to have achieved this important milestone in our sustainability journey,ʺ said Dieter Niederstadt, technical marketing manager of Asahi Photoproducts. “We understand the importance of accountability and continuous improvement in carbon footprinting, and we are grateful to the Carbon Trust for their expert guidance and oversight. We look forward to ongoing interaction with the Carbon Trust as we continue our whole-of-company compliance with the carbon management plan that is part of the Carbon Neutral certification process. We are also dedicated to helping our customers leverage this certification in their own carbon footprinting efforts.”
