Siegwerk Headquarters

Siegwerk, one of the leading global providers of printing inks and coatings for packaging applications and labels, has announced that Siegwerk has signed an agreement for a Standard Membership with the World Climate Foundation. 

The World Climate Foundation is one of the largest and most influential global platforms focusing on climate, biodiversity, and health resilience. For over a decade, it has been promoting collaboration between governments, businesses, financial institutions, and international organizations to accelerate the transition to a green economy. 

“We are excited to be a part of this initiative, that aims to promote climate protection and energy efficiency. This membership allows us to drive the sustainable business transition together with peers”, said Alina Marm, head of Global Sustainability and Circular Economy at Siegwerk.

According to its sustainability strategy ‘HorizonNOW’ Siegwerk has committed to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions across the value chain by 2050. The company has set near- and long-term company-wide emission reductions in line with the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi). Siegwerk is also committed to achieve carbon neutrality for scope 1 & 2 already by the end of 2025.  

As a member of the World Climate Foundation, Siegwerk will have the opportunity to participate in year-round events, connect with a diverse global network, and create partnerships that advance individual and organizational objectives. Siegwerk is excited to be part of this global initiative and is looking forward to working with the World Climate Foundation to promote a sustainable future.

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 grown 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!
