Sustainability Overview

Building a Sustainable Future

At AWT, sustainability is part of our DNA. We’ve been committed to sustainable operations for as long as we’ve been in business. In the early days it made good business sense to minimize waste and operate as efficiently as possible. Today, we continue to lead our industry in environment friendly practices and by developing labels and packaging that help our customers and their end consumers meet sustainability goals.

ESG: Taking Care of Our Workforce and Our World


The team at AWT works hard every day to reduce the impact our operations have on the environment. We are constantly expanding the portfolio of sustainable label and packaging solutions available to our customers. Operationally, our goal is to achieve zero waste in all our processes and share best practices across our industry.


Our most important assets are our people. Providing our employees a safe, positive, and inclusive work environment where they can thrive and advance is among our top priorities. We look for supplier-partners who have these same values, and who share our commitment to sustainable operations.


AWT has a history of looking beyond our four walls and supporting our communities. We volunteer our time and provide financial contributions to help social and environmental causes. Initiatives range from company-wide to grassroots ideas led by passionate employees who recognize a need.
