Sun Chemical has released its 2010 sustainability report, providing performance measurement for seven key sustainability metrics.

The report shows data collected every year since 2005 from approximately 170 Sun Chemical sites in over 25 countries. The key sustainability metrics measured in the data include: energy consumption/conservation at production and non-production sites; the energy carbon footprint at the production sites; process waste reduction; water consumption; materials safety; and employee safety.

Providing a report that shows the ongoing management and monitoring of key sustainability metrics is an important part of Sun Chemical’s sustainability policy.

“Through a defined road map, our sustainability policy pushes us as a company, to improve the eco-efficiency of our processes and products,” says Michel Vanhems, sustainability leader, Sun Chemical.

Both the 2009 and 2010 sustainability reports, along with the “Carbon Footprint Report 2010,” which outlines the results from nine independent environmental analyses focused on quantifying the carbon footprint of its product lines, are available to customers and can be requested online at www.sunchemical.com/company/sustainability. Customers in the United States can calculate the initial carbon footprint for their facility operations by visiting www.sunchemical.com/suncare.
