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


Sustainability is central in our approach to business. 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 reduce waste and emissions and energy consumption 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.


We are committed to advancing ESG and providing transparency on our progress. AWT has a long history of looking beyond our four walls, acting with integrity, and supporting our communities. As we grow and continue to expand, we will set aspirational goals and report metrics that align with industry and stakeholder expectations.
