Flint Group launches its Prism sustainability framework
May 19, 2023 By PrintAction Staff
The Flint Group outlines its plans to reduce its environmental impact under its new sustainability framework.
The company’s Prism sustainability framework includes a range of targets such as circular economy product development, reducing operational impacts, and building a diverse workforce. Plans include Flint Group’s recent commitment to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), with the company reducing carbon emissions in line with the 1.5 C scenario set out in the goals of the Paris Agreement.
Matthew Rowland-Jones, sustainability officer at Flint Group, said, “As the focus on climate change grows, brands seek packaging and label formats which are more sustainable to support their objectives. In today’s highly competitive market, printers need confidence that their vendors can help them lead in sustainable packaging via responsibly sourced, sustainable materials. Flint Group’s new Prism framework does just that. With a new set of targets and KPIs, we’re outlining how we will pave the way for even more sustainable products.”
In the same way a glass prism separates white light into different colours, the company’s Prism framework breaks the complexity of sustainability down into three essential parts: products, people, and the planet. It is designed to embed sustainability into the business, focusing on the most critical issues affecting the organization, its customers, and stakeholders, and specifically by designing products for the circular economy, helping customers be more efficient, and lowering the carbon footprint of its core products.
