FDDI certificate for footwear adhesives

97

‘Green Label’ authorization is issued to manufacturers after a strict quality inspection that analyzes the use of certified material and environment-friendly processing chemicals as well as production processes that reduces energy consumption and carbon emission. It also evaluates the nature of the product and ensures that it is non-hazardous and safe for the human body.

S Sunil Kumar, business director – industrial adhesives, South Asia, Henkel, said, “We are extremely proud to have been bestowed with the ‘Green Label’ certification from FDDI and thank the prestigious body for their support. This certificate is strongly aligned with our customer values to ensure sustainability and offer innovative technology solutions to our customers. As most of our customers are global entities, they have been keen and highly supportive to adopt new environmentally safe options such as the water-based technologies. We see this ‘Green Label’ certification by FDDI as a joint win-win for the industry and Henkel team.

Henkel has always been in the forefront of innovation and manufacturing environmentally safe adhesive solutions. As market leaders across the world, Henkel’s water-based technology not only helps the environment but also helps in optimizing costs. In 2014, Henkel India, in partnership with FDDI kick-started Henkel-FDDI Shoe Academy in Noida. This academy offers certified training programmes and shares best practices with customers, with an objective to learn, share knowledge and together upgrade the Indian footwear industry by introducing sustainable and value-added practices.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
