GR Label Environmental Policy and Standards
Environmental Protection Standards & Initiatives
Protecting our environment is an integral part of our company and culture at Grand Rapids Label. We were instrumental in setting the official standards for TLMI's Label Initiative for the Environment (L.I.F.E.), and we were the first label converter to meet these standards and receive L.I.F.E. certification. Embracing a structured, company-wide program enables us to effectively promote the continual improvement of environmental standards. Examples of elements we address include the recycle-compatibility of adhesives and the source and destination of liner materials. Front office issues are also addressed such as total energy utilization and waste-to-energy efforts. Of course, Grand Rapids Label is certified to environmental standard ISO14001.
