GLOUCESTER, MA | Mitsubishi Polyester Film has been awarded L.I.F.E. (Label Initiative for the Environment) certification from the Tag & Label Mfrs. Inst. (TLMI). The Project L.I.F.E. program was developed in order to assist TLMI members to find cost effective ways to reduce their companies’ environmental footprint and was designed specifically for the narrow web marketplace. It addresses four key elements of the narrow web printing and converting industry: clean production, energy and greenhouse gases, product and environmentally preferable materials, and management practices.
Frank Sablone, TLMI president, comments, “I would like to congratulate Mitsubishi Polyester Film on their recent TLMI L.I.F.E. certification. The central objective in developing the L.I.F.E. initiative was to offer the association’s members a credible and comprehensive program that addresses their sustainability requirements, and the opportunity to take their L.I.F.E. certification to their own customer base to further demonstrate their commitment to the environment and to the greater industry. I applaud Mitsubishi for their efforts and dedication.”
TLMI is a member-driven association that offers forums to address issues critical to the success of the tag and label, packaging, and converting industries in the North American marketplace.
Mitsubishi Polyester Film, Inc., together with its polyester film affiliates in the Mitsubishi Plastics, Inc. group, is a global leader and is said among the largest suppliers of polyester film in the world.
