Neenah, WI – November 6, 2019 - Outlook Group has earned two prestigious sustainability awards with a combination of products and processes that reduce environmental impact, including its ultra-thin pressure sensitive labels, custom contract packaging services, and landfill diversion practices.
The Tag and Label Manufacturer’s Institute (TLMI) bestowed the label and packaging converter with its 2019 Calvin Frost Environmental Leadership Award while Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce (WMC) recognized Outlook Group as a 2019 Wisconsin Business Friend of the Environment.
Outlook Group’s proprietary MICROLINER® ultra-thin film pressure sensitive labels has reduced customers’ material consumption by as much as 80%, and the PET film material can be used in waste-to-energy programs. Additionally, with more labels on a roll, end users not only reduce their carbon footprint with MICROLINER labels, but also realize 15-50% savings on transportation, warehousing, and employee handling costs associated with labeling their products.
TLMI Vice President of Sustainability, Rosalyn Bandy, said, “MICROLINER was a prominent standout in Outlook’s submission as an option to help their customers with their own sustainability goals.”
For the contract packaging market, Outlook Group simplifies the complexity in bringing a product to market – through expert engineering consultation, on-site printing, packaging, and distribution – delivering real sustainable savings. Outlook Group's customized Contract Packaging services have reduced product and material waste by 13% for one healthcare customer while an OTC customer has condensed its supply chain footprint from eight touch points to one with Outlook Group’s strategic services.
Outlook Group diverts 95-98% of the process waste generated at its manufacturing plant in Neenah, Wisconsin from going to landfill. As a manufacturer of paper and film labels, flexible packaging, and folding cartons, there are numerous waste streams running through the 330,000 square-foot headquarters. Fiber materials are collected and recycled into new paper products. Plastics, matrix waste, and laminated materials are separated and sent to a waste-to-energy partner to be extruded into fuel pellets and sold back into the energy grid.
Said Outlook Group President, Kevin Hayes, “Our success story reflects our continued commitment to environmental protection and reducing our carbon footprint. We are honored to be given these awards among the many other companies nominated and especially grateful to our employees––who live out our sustainability goals every day––and our clients who lean on us to help make their packaging more sustainable.”
