It includes the company developing products suitable for a circular economy, minimising its operational impacts and building a ‘diverse’ workforce.

According to FLINT, the PRISM framework will break down sustainability complexities into three main parts that will comprise ‘Products, People and the Planet’.

This separation has been created to embed sustainability into the company’s core business, allowing it to shift its focus on the most crucial issues that are directly impacting the company, as well as its customers and stakeholders.

Flint Group CEO Steve Dryden said: “For Flint Group, it is essential that our inks and coatings be integral to the packaging circular economy.

“With PRISM, our commitments become clear – to innovate, and to reduce the environmental impact of our products, the footprint of our business, and that of our customers. 

“Importantly, to invest in our people, building a diverse workforce who can support these objectives.”

The new framework will further help the company to reinforce its commitment towards the ‘Science Based Targets’ initiative by reducing its overall carbon emissions.

It is also in line with the 1.5°C scenario that was specified in the goals of the Paris Agreement.

Flint Group sustainability officer Matthew Rowland-Jones said: “As the focus on climate change grows, brands seek packaging and label formats which are more sustainable to support their objectives.

“In today’s highly competitive market, printers need confidence that their vendors can help them lead in sustainable packaging via responsibly sourced, sustainable materials.

“Flint Group’s new PRISM framework does just that – with a new set of targets and KPIs, we are outlining how we will pave the way for even more sustainable products. But more importantly, this framework will see us overhaul our business.”
