The subject of environmental protection is becoming more and more important and Sihl is therefore also endeavouring to ensure greater sustainability in its products: through the sustainable use of resources, a reduction in the total weight of some FACESTOCK varieties of 20 – 40% is achieved. The possibility of using two printing technologies – inkjet and laser – leads to reduced transport and storage costs and thus to an improved CO2 balance.
For PET-based products, the base can be replaced with a film containing up to 90 % PCR. PCR, post-consumer recycling, is the reprocessing of plastic waste generated by consumers in households and offices.
These measures enable Sihl to significantly improve the CO2 footprint of the FACESTOCK range.
