Innovia Films launched Encore C45cn, the first carbon-neutral BOPP label film. Encore C45cn is ISCC certified and will reduce carbon footprint and reduce the use of fossil resources.
Stephen Weber, Key Account Director, Labels at Innovia Films, explains, “in addition to being carbon neutral, Encore C45cn is a high MD stiffness 45um BOPP bubble film for automatic label dispensing performance. This could allow the replacement of standard 50um films giving a further 10% material saving. “
Encore 45cn is carbon neutral on a mass balance and cradle to gate basis as certified by the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC Plus) program.
According to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation program, CE100 co-authored the report “achieving the 2030 UN Sustainable Development Goals and Paris Agreement climate targets will hinge upon the global transition to a low-carbon circular economy”. In line with this, major brand owners are making commitments to move towards net-zero emissions, and as part of this, they will communicate the carbon footprint of each product. A carbon-neutral film’s availability to lower the labels’ carbon footprint is one step to help towards this net-zero emissions goal.
