With concern growing about the fragile state of the world’s environment, businesses in all sectors are under pressure to adopt eco-friendly practices in the drive to attain Net Zero.

Digital printing machines offer an agile and cost-efficient solution to many pain points in the packaging process and are redefining the commercial landscape, as we will explain in this article.
