MINNEAPOLIS, MN – NOVEMBER 3, 2023 – AWT Labels & Packaging is proud to announce we have received the Calvin Frost Sustainability Leadership Award from the Tag & Label Manufacturers Institute (TLMI). AWT was presented with the Journey Award for companies which have not only established sustainability programs, but also continue to expand the scope of sustainability efforts and goals.
The TLMI Sustainability Leadership Awards recognize converter and supplier members who have consistently demonstrated a commitment to progressive sustainability practices across a range of areas. TLMI noted AWT’s comprehensive sustainability program which includes customer education tools, an established sustainability committee that meets regularly to review and report progress, a reduction in energy consumption, and reductions in VOC emissions as factors when considering AWT’s submission.
“We are grateful to have been chosen for this award,” said Michelle Zeller, President of AWT. “We’ve made efforts to reduce waste, identify and track our greenhouse gas emissions, and provide guidance and leadership with our customers to ensure their packaging is being designed with more sustainable labels. AWT’s sustainable journey was greatly propelled when we were introduced to Calvin Frost, and we thank him and TLMI for sharing their knowledge and sustainability practices with us.”
