ESG Press Release: National Green Tribunal puts Karnataka Govt. on notice for planning to release 1152 crores plastic labels into the environment

Type: Press Release | Published Date: 01 Feb 2018

Karnataka State has been using paper based Excise Adhesive Labels (EAL) on IML bottles and tetra packs over decades now. A Technical Expert Committee of the Government of Karnataka in its October 2014 Report on Excise Adhesive Labels (EAL) recommended that “Hybrid Labels (paper based label with Hologram) are found to be superior to polyester based labels.” Regardless of this the government has continued to use EALs. ESG has challenged the issue of a tender notice by the government for EALs.
