It is reported that the biggest difficulty facing the paper bag packaging industry is to reduce carbon footprints. With the vigorous promotion of government departments, brand holders, retail groups, and consumer arrangements, carbon reduction pressure on the packaging and paper label industry continue to increase. There is a growing need for eco-friendly packaging and paper labels in shopping malls, and Wepaperbag and other packaging users are also looking for new ways to reduce the carbon footprints of their supply chains.
In the UK, for example, the British Parliament passed the Climate change Act on November 26, 2008. making it the first country in the world to deal with the risk of climate change by introducing a long-term statutory binding structure-they plan to cut carbon dioxide emissions by 80% by 2050 and by 26% to 34% by 2020.
Many internationally renowned retail companies have also drawn up personal emission reduction plans. Tesco, the world’s leading retailer, plans to cut its personal carbon footprint by 30% by 2020. The company set up a supply chain collaboration a year ago, in which companies such as Diageo and Coca-Cola are now involved, while Tesco aims to bring in its top 1000 suppliers by the end of 2012.
In the United States, Wal-Mart, the world’s largest retail company, has long been committed to reducing carbon footprints in product packaging and hopes to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 20 million tons by the end of 2015 in collaboration with suppliers.
In France, the government has issued a pilot scheme that requires all multinationals to participate in the carbon footprint labeling project. Companies that have adopted carbon labels include Unilever, Heineken, and Procter & Gamble. In fact, the pilot program is so popular that many companies volunteer to take the test.
In the UK, Sainsbury supermarket has launched a new packaging message designed to help consumers make sustainable purchasing decisions. It is understood that this new type of packaging has now reduced the amount of packaging used by the company by 11% compared with the previous two years.
So how much impact can these efforts have on the labeling profession? In order to adapt to the changes in shopping malls, some label companies are actively developing new or improved products, looking for new solutions, accounting for carbon footprints, or introducing new data, and have now completed their personal policy of sustainable development or emission reduction.
Tarsus published a manual entitled “Environmental performance and Sustainable labeling” in September last year, which not only raised the industry’s awareness of environmental challenges but also led the labeling profession to a more sustainable future. Any label company, regardless of the size of the plan, can benefit from publishing books.
In spite of this, the labeling profession of the Yiwu paper bag processing factory can not be crippled. After all, there are only a small number of companies that can set and complete emission reduction policies, and many small label processing companies do not even have the time and money to establish such policies.
