It is no brainer that sustainable packaging is the future. With over 80% of companies shifting towards sustainability, businesses are nowadays more aware than ever before to contribute towards a greener and sustainable tomorrow.
At Kamakshi, we believe in fostering next-gen packaging excellence. Built on pillars of qualitative outcomes, safe business practices and pro-environment activities, our team works relentlessly to deliver par expectations.
Zero-compromise quality being at the forefront, right from picking the best of best raw materials, our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, delivers high craftsmanship packaging solutions. Not only this, it complies with the environmental norms and uses safe business practices, to ensure minimal harm to nature. In a nutshell, the packaging solutions at Kamakshi are an amalgamation of it all.
With the same vision, we are opening up an IGBC-certified infrastructure facility, to contribute toward a greener and more sustainable tomorrow.
Formed in the year 2001, the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) is a part of the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII). This council is built with the vision, “To enable a sustainable built environment for all and facilitate India to be one of the global leaders in the sustainable built environment by 2025″.
Benefits of Green Existing Buildings
This very first rating programme of India exclusively for the industrial sector is based on accepted energy and environmental principles. It also strikes a balance between known established practices and emerging concepts. The various tangible and intangible benefits are as follows:
- Energy savings: 30 – 40%
- Water savings: 20 – 30%
- Enhanced indoor air quality
- Good daylighting
- Health and well-being of the occupants
- Safety of the workmen
The Green Features
Any industrial project that addresses the green features under the following categories can opt for the IGBC Green Factory Buildings rating system.
- Site Selection and Planning
- Water Conservation
- Energy Conservation
- Materials Conservation
- Indoor Environmental Quality and Occupational Health
- Innovation & Design Process
Keeping in consideration the above pointers, our new greenfield project addresses all the environmental concerns. It is all set to manufacture sustainable flexible packaging solutions that are just the right fit for our customers.
With the increasing concern for the environment, usually, there are higher challenges when it comes to recycling composite laminates. This generates the need for lineally compatible laminates like PE/PE, OPE, and BOPP which are easy to recycle and fulfil the packaging needs of the product.
At Kamakshi Flexiprints, we always are bound on finding a balance between the packaging requirements and environmental needs. Our team keeps a keen eye on what the market demands and how we can effectively integrate it into our existing processes. Hence, we are focusing on shifting from traditional craft-based to engineering and science-based packaging.
Bridging the Gap Between Sustainability and Packaging Needs
Considering the weather conditions of India, which are mainly ruled by dust, water quality, excessive heat, usually solvent evaporation and heat dissipation creates a big challenge in creating a cleanroom environment for producing packaging material.
We have invested in engineering the infrastructure to improve the quality of water, addition scientifically designed ventilation to purge the room, HVAC etc to address these challenges.
Another challenge is the shortage of qualified and talented workforce. Hence, we are building a strong base in training, research and development-based product design. We are therefore making the endeavour to handle the complexities of the industry through engineering and science.
To facilitate just with the best-of-best, we are in discussion with vendors who are in line with our practices. FMCGs, following the global norms being the main driving force for this industry, we are synchronising our practices to conform to their global needs with them.
At Kamakshi, since its inception, our endeavour has been to offer technological excellence with aesthetic appeal. This ensures that our clients can build brands and provide safe and durable products based on our Packaging Solutions.
Our team is relentlessly working towards making all the ends meet for a greener, sustainable, healthier and most importantly, a better tomorrow.
