Flint Group has released its annual sustainability report, looking at how the company uses resources, and stays in front of legislation on chemical regulations and procedures.

The company says this year’s report reviews both energy usage and energy intensity to provide greater understanding and transparency. Antoine Fady, chief executive at Flint Group says, “We recognise that maintaining a high degree of economic, environmental and social sustainability is fundamental to delivering value for our stakeholders now and in the long term.

“In addition to forming Flint Group Africa, a joint venture with Continental Inks (South Africa), we have made five major acquisitions, most notably acquiring Xeikon, a leading digital solutions provider to the packaging and commercial printing markets, in December 2015. This propelled us further into the digital solutions market, laying the foundation of a new division – Flint Group Digital Printing Solutions – and strengthening the sophisticated, diverse portfolio of products and services we offer across our global markets.”

Russell Taylor, senior vice president Global Human Resources, HSE, Communications and Sustainability, Flint Group says, “Our people continued to show great enthusiasm in their support of local charities and worthy causes, allowing us to give back to our communities.

“Of all the great social projects we have participated in this year, one of our proudest moments was providing clean drinking water for the children at a primary school in Lamdapura, India, helping to improve children’s health and boost school attendance. We have also helped transform recycled waste into valuable income for underprivileged communities in Brazil, donated food to disadvantaged children in the US and provided free printing services to a cancer charity in Belgium.”

Flint says, “As one of the leading suppliers to the Printing and Packaging industries, Flint Group remains committed to implementing initiatives that support continual improvement in all areas, including sustainability.”
