Sustainable Production at Label Craft, part of The Asteria Group.
Towards the end of 2022 Label Craft joined the Asteria Group and aligned with their sustainability practices at their Dublin factory in Ireland. The Asteria group at large proudly boasts a wide range of sustainable raw materials at its disposal. Moreover, as a group we closely follow all ecological market developments and proactively search for innovative, sustainable materials together.
Less is More, Reducing Waste.
Asteria Group companies use modern machines that greatly reduce waste production and energy consumption. In addition, Asteria’s staff are trained and made aware of how to reduce waste. The waste is not only sorted, but solutions are also constantly being sought to reduce costs and impact. The raw material waste can in many cases be recycled, think of OPP. All other waste streams are shredded, compacted and collected separately.
Asteria Group has started a project of optimal and responsible water management. Using a water purification system, the rainwater is collected and buffered for use in production. The water used in production therefore comes from a closed loop system. This ensures that the water can always be reused. The solvents are then collected after evaporation and distilled for reuse. The residual solvents are broken down by means of an own biofilter installation.
As much as possible, the Asteria Group wants to use alternative sources of energy such as solar power. For example, the installation of solar panels at one of our production sites accounts for more than 25% of its energy consumption. In addition, this results in an average CO2 reduction of 31 tonnes per year for that site. Our Label Craft Dublin factory installed its Solar Power in 2023.
