Environment

"We work across the world, meaning it is our responsibility to consider the environment in everything we do."

At SML we believe that being environmentally sustainable is about more than just choosing the right materials. It’s a total approach, applicable throughout the packaging supply chain, from concept design to the sampling and approval process through to the selection of raw materials, printing, converting and distributing of your products.

Simply put, at SML, being environmentally sustainable means all our designing, sourcing, manufacturing and distribution methods are as ecologically sound as possible.

 

 

 

Reduced Waste

From the initial design process, products can be made more efficiently to eliminate unnecessary components, reduce inputs such as water and chemicals, and minimize carbon footprint.

We incorporate designs that utilize as much of a selected piece of material as possible to offer more compact and simplified products and packaging, reduce waste, maximize container storage and lower logistics costs.

Smarter Logistics

Our advanced information management and knowledge-based systems allow us to support more sustainable and efficient processes across the entire supply chain, both lowering costs and reducing environmental impact. Additionally, our global manufacturing sites are closer to key garment manufacturers, helping to decrease distribution distances and reduce waste from transportation.

 

Sustainable Materials

We continually develop our sustainability offerings, with a dedicated team researching the latest in quality alternatives to traditional techniques. Our offering includes easily-recyclable materials that enhance product durability and longevity, suit functionality, and allow for low-impact maintenance.
