Best new innovation in sustainability

The company’s Logistics Grade Linerless Solution was announced by MHI, the renowned material handling, logistics and supply chain trade association

Avery Dennison, a global leader in material science and digital identification solutions, is celebrating once more having received recognition for its innovative approach to sustainability.

The company’s Logistics Grade Linerless Solution was announced by MHI, the renowned material handling, logistics and supply chain trade association, as the winning entry in the category of Best New Innovation in Sustainability. MHI CEO John Paxton presented the award during the MODEX 2O24 supply chain experience event at the Georgia World Congress Center in the US.

Avery Dennison’s linerless labels can have a significant positive impact on a logistics operation’s productivity, efficiency, safety and carbon footprint. According to the Carbon Trust Footprint, switching from a direct thermal linered product to Avery Dennison’s direct thermal linerless solution results in a 49% reduction in carbon and a 34% reduction in water usage.

The solution supports organizations committed to tackling Scope 3 emissions, while advancing their decarbonisation and sustainability journey.

Paxton says, “The logistics grade linerless labels from Avery Dennison are a true innovation that can have a significant positive impact on operational efficiency and sustainability.”

Colleen Costello, senior manager, Label Solutions, Avery Dennison, adds, “Sustainability is ingrained in everything we do as a business. A key part of this is helping our clients identify ways to operate in a more environmentally responsible manner and progress to reach their respective sustainability goals. We are thrilled the MHI award judges recognize our deep commitment to both innovation and sustainability in an ever-evolving business world.”

The award win follows the launch of Avery Dennison’s 2023 Integrated Sustainability and Annual Report, which presents highlights of the company’s performance and progress against its 2025 and 2030 sustainability goals.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
