INX releases inaugural Sustainability Report
INX International Ink Co. has released its inaugural Sustainability Report, offering a comprehensive overview of the company’s evolving practices.
The extensive 36-page report emphasises INX’s continuing commitment to become a greener company, and how it translates into providing customers with best-in-class ink and technology solutions that enable world-class printing standards.
Since the introduction of a Coloring a Safe and Sustainable Future (CSSF) model in 2020 that is aligned with the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, INX has been steadfast with its approach to developing new products and processes.
All North American INX printing facilities have also committed to achieving a significant reduction of GHG emissions by 2030.
“As an industry leader and providing customers for decades with a broad range of commercial, packaging, and digital printing applications, we are dedicated to developing products that create value for our customers and help safeguard our planet,” stated Bryce Kristo, who was promoted to INX President and CEO in January 2023.
“We recognise the value of investing in a circular economy, and we have identified specific steps to improve how we manage our resources and eliminate waste through better product and process designs,” continued Kristo, who has worked at INX since 1991.
“By aligning our CSSF model with the United Nations 2030 Agenda – and combining it with the proper focus and our extensive R&D capabilities – I am confident we will help our customers innovate and achieve their sustainability goals while delivering greater value to their customers.”
A priority assessment project helped INX identify Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) initiatives that were aligned with the CSSF model and integrated into INX’s Sustainability strategy. The report explains the company’s Sustainability strategy, focusing on the three areas of impact within the CSSF model: Product Design for the environment, Process Design for the environment, and Social Responsibility.
It further details the sustainability attributes of INX’s products, the optimised manufacturing processes supporting the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), INX’s identification of six high impact areas, and more. The INX Sustainability Report can be accessed here.
