Avery Dennison has some ambitious sustainability goals it wants to hit by 2025. It wants to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 3 percent year-over-year, go up to 95 percent landfill-free, eliminate 70 percent of matrix and liner, and source film and chemicals more responsibly, among others.
Sarah Sanzo, Avery Dennison’s product compliance and sustainability manager, is responsible for all of these 2025 goals, which are based on the natural set principles. And while she admits that reducing and responsible sourcing are “no-brainers” when it comes to a more sustainable planet, others pose much more of a challenge. For instance, liner waste recycling.
