As part of its sustainability strategy ‘We think green’, Doneck Network focuses on the circular economy. For this reason, the international printing ink manufacturer has had its entire raw material assortment subjected to the material health check of the ‘Cradle to Cradle’ Certified® Products Program.
Almost the complete ink range is based on raw materials that correspond at least to the C2C bronze level. There are also numerous raw materials that allow the Doneck Network to achieve silver or gold status through appropriate formulations.
For example, the Doneck Network has a special tissue ink series with certified C2C silver status. Furthermore, there are already numerous varnishes based on a selection of raw materials that meet the gold status criteria. If required these can be brought to certification in cooperation with our customers.
Cradle to Cradle is based on a scientific assessment of the sustainability of products. Doneck Network’s aim is to enable the entire packaging supply chain to make ambitious and measurable progress in the advancement of sustainable technology.
As an independent assessor and innovation partner, the Epea institute has subjected the Doneck Network’s raw materials to a material health assessment of the Cradle to Cradle Certified® Products Program. By material health, the C2C principle means environmentally safe, healthy and reusable materials (technical recycling). The safety of materials for man and the environment is thus guaranteed for the product.
“This detailed assessment was an important milestone for us to permanently increase the sustainability level with new and innovative products”, says Michael Heinenberg, Head of Technical Safety Service, Doneck Network.
