Feb. 27, 2018 - Farnell Packaging Limited of Dartmouth, N.S., has achieved certification by the Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP) organization. Established in 1961, Farnell is a family-owned and operated company focusing on providing high-quality, innovative flexible packaging work. 

Nearly two-thirds of Farnell’s flexible packaging work is produced for the food industry with the balance being used in markets for tissue, personal care, horticulture, and other industrial applications.

“The Sustainable Green Printing Partnership belief that sustainability is a means of continuous improvement for every aspect of your business is very much in line with Farnell Packaging’s sustainability and continuous improvement practices – from process, to people, to profitability,” said Bill Morash, CEO, Farnell Packaging. “Part of our culture is understanding our impact on the world. Finding ways to improve our facility’s energy efficiency through our SGP certification was aligned with our culture of continuous improvement and our entrepreneurial spirit which keeps us asking, what’s next?”


Morash continues to explain that Farnell’s SGP certification process resulted in the creation of a cross-functional energy team, developing leaders for the company while growing revenue and ultimately reducing the company’s annual electrical consumption by more than 156,00 kWh.


Farnell, in announcing its SGP certification, explains sustainability in business is a longstanding corporate culture and business strategy, focusing on a people-centred safety culture, their community, facility, and the process, materials, energy management and transportation, as well as reducing, reusing, and recycling opportunities.

“With the SGP certification process, [our] accomplishments include an Energy Profile, an Energy Assessment, an Energy Team, an updated Energy Policy, a Performance Tracking model an Energy Savings Opportunity Register, and to top it off a Bright Business Engagement Award for our staff who have always been at the heart or our company’s environmental successes,” said Morash. “We are confident that our infrastructure changes are creating a more sustainable continuous improvement culture that will continue to create value, savings, and other energy efficiencies for years to come.”
