INX International is committed to formulating state-of-the-art, environment-friendly products that deliver unsurpassed performance and quality while minimizing their negative impact to the environment. Providing sustainable product solutions and environmental stewardship have always been part of our core values and strategic direction.
As times change, we will continue to monitor the environmental needs of the Industry. We will continue to work with our customers and partners to address the evolving social concerns about the environment.
Our research and development efforts continue to look for opportunities to utilize environmentally friendly raw materials and develop new products that have the least impact on our environment. We choose raw materials and processes that maximize the use of renewable and recyclable materials. We identify and utilize the best-available technology that is both environmentally friendly and economically viable to meet our customers’ requirements.
To reduce emissions of Volatile Organic Components (VOC’s) we have adopted the use of more environment friendly raw materials. Examples include the replacement of petroleum oil with naturally replenishable vegetable oils such as soy, the replacement of solvent-based materials with water-based and the utilization of UV curable raw materials formulated without VOC solvents.
We strive to reduce waste throughout our products’ lifecycles through the recovery and recycling of inks and coatings. To help our customers reduce print waste we offer proprietary INXManager® Software that allows users to recycle existing colors into one batch. Where waste is neither recoverable nor recyclable we aim to ensure that it is environmentally safe for all probable end-of-life scenarios.
Our Environment, Health & Safety team works internally, with our customers, and with local communities in which we operate to ensure that we are meeting or exceeding standards set by regulatory and industry organizations around the world.
