TLMI’s Sustainability Purpose
As an association, we will inspire a culture of sustainability awareness through leadership, education, support, and advocacy to help members reduce their impact on the planet

TLMI takes the meaning of sustainability literally – the ability to keep doing what we’re doing. We know that our member companies play a vital role in the continuing growth of our industry and we know the importance of being responsible stewards of our planet’s finite resources.

Change begins with me. With this thought in mind, TLMI provides resources for our members, including an environmental management system designed specifically for the label industry; and committees where collaboration on environmental topics can enable understanding, and commitment to re-define value.

Change involves more than me. TLMI collaborates with like-minded associations in a holistic approach to resource minimization and recycling solutions. We actively participate with other organizations, including the Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR) and the Sustainable Packaging Coalition (SPC), so our members can take meaningful action toward packaging sustainability.

In a world where brands and retailers are leveraging their entire supply chain to tackle sustainable development goals, TLMI provides a vast cross-section of resources so that our members are well prepared to face any challenge, both long and short term.
