OMET – The Green Side of Printing

A cleaner world, a more protected environment and plastic-free oceans. OMET takes up the challenge launched by international institutions and organizations to renew and share its commitment to environmental sustainability and energy efficiency in view of Labelexpo 2019. At the fair in Brussels, OMET will show new solutions, materials and technologies able to protect the planet beyond ensuring greater productivity and profitability to the customer.

In 2015, the United Nations members adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals, highlighting that sustainability is not just an environmental issue, but also an economic and social one: all stakeholders should work to reach these goals, from companies to public organizations.

Respect for the environment is one of OMET’s fundamental values: the company believes it’s precise responsibility towards the society and future generations. OMET has always invested in research and development paying attention to waste reduction, energy saving and sustainability of production processes through the whole value chain, starting from the raw materials to the final product.

This commitment takes shape today in the “The Green Side of Printing” project, which brings together all OMET’s “green” innovations over the years, and will be the hallmark of its participation at the upcoming Labelexpo 2019. OMET is ready to amaze and involve its visitors with new ideas and solutions, following the “green” path to show how efficiency and sustainability are perfectly fitting together and enhancing each other.

“With the Green Side of Printing project, we want to highlight all sustainable technologies already implemented on our machines – explains Antonio Bartesaghi, OMET President and CEO – and to officialize our commitment in developing innovative solutions with our partners. We aim to give our customers the possibility to work with greater care for the environment, and at the same time gain advantages in their business, as for example new possibilities for finished products and production and time savings”.
