Associations and Memberships
Achieving more together
Siegwerk promotes responsible business practices, even outside the company. To achieve this, we work closely together with industry associations and organizations around the world, and share our expert knowledge and convictions there.
Siegwerk plays a leading role in the committees of the European Printing Ink Association (EuPIA), and the most important national printing ink associations in Europe. We also work actively in industry associations outside the borders of Europe. Siegwerk is a member of the China Printing Ink Association (CPIA) and the American National Association of Printing Ink Manufacturers (NAPIM). In addition, we are represented in all of the industry associations around the world that are relevant to our business.
Transparency strengthens trust
Our commitment goes far beyond the technical association work. We are members of organizations and initiatives that promote greater sustainability across different industries. In order to increase the transparency of the entire supply chain, in 2012 Siegwerk became the first printing ink manufacturer to join the initiative Supplier Ethical Data Exchange (SEDEX). This platform allows member companies to exchange information relating to sustainability. We are also part of the evaluation platform EcoVadis, which closely examines the sustainability of companies and generates ratings. We share this information with our customers in order to further promote the topic of sustainability.
Particularly important to us is involvement in initiatives that promote sustainable development. We are therefore active in Responsible Care, a voluntary global initiative of the chemical industry that campaigns for responsible business practices. Its aim is to improve health protection, environmental protection, and safety in companies. We have joined the industry initiative “Chemie³”, which pursues the aim of anchoring sustainability as the mission statement of its member companies. In CEFLEX we contribute to the development of more sustainable future flexible packaging. And with our support of the SAVE FOOD initiative we joined forces to fight against food waste.
