Flint Group, including all business units within its Packaging and its Commercial Publication & Web divisions, has achieved silver status from EcoVadis, the world’s largest and most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings with a global network of over 85,000 rated companies.

The company was considered to be in the top 21% of companies rated by EcoVadis in the manufacture of paints, varnishes, and similar coatings, including printing inks. It was rated in the top 9% of companies in the sustainable procurement category and the top 7% for Ethics.

Steve Dryden, chief executive officer for Flint Group, said, “This is a tremendous achievement for our business around the world. It reflects the hard work and commitment our teams are making in driving toward our 2030 sustainability vision, recognizing our customers, employees, and shareholders as an ethical company, supplying sustainable products and services to the packaging and printing industries. This vision supports long-term value creation and growth for our customers, employees, and shareholders.”

EcoVadis helped Flint Group in adopting sustainable practices

Flint Group employs a diligent sustainability framework covering ecological, social, and governance aspects of the business’ activities and, in 2020, became a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact. This commitment aligns the company’s operations with the UN’s universal principles on human rights, labor, the environment, and anti-corruption, in addition to the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Doug Aldred, chief commercial officer for Flint Group, said, “EcoVadis provides the leading solution for monitoring sustainability in global supply chains. The business uses its innovative technology and sustainability expertise to support Flint Group in adopting sustainable practices, and we were delighted to secure silver status, a 10-point improvement over our 2020 score.” 

 

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
