Vincent Lin, VP of TAYA Groups said, “I am a strong believer that green materials are the future of the large format printing industry.

And it’s only the beginning.”
TAYA signed an official Memorandum of Understanding with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), initiating a partnership dedicated promoting sustainable development goals. This is a milestone collaboration for the industry and a solid declaration of our clear vision and ambitious goals for the future.
Environmental Sustainability
Aiming to be sustainable – KAVALAN
 
The need for a clean, green alternative to PVC that delivers on performance, quality, and price has been evident for many years. KAVALAN is the answer to that challenge – a game-changing product, but also a mission to step up and do the right thing, a call to action for all of us to preserve the environment for future generations. Will you join the movement?
KAVALAN is:
· Biodegradable
· Tear-resistant
· Flame-retardant
· Suitable for welding
At the end of their lives, PVC products, even those billed as recyclable, still end up in landfill in some form, with no commercially available methods to recover any of the original PVC.
 
“When it comes to making decisions, often the choice is between doing what is easy, and doing what is right. Wanting to take the easy route sometimes is human nature. But with KAVALAN, finally making the right choice and making the easy choice are one and the same – it’s never been easier to do the right thing, so follow our lead and be a part of KAVALAN’s green revolution.” - Vincent Lin, VP of TAYA Groups
 
KAVALAN, designed with responsible end-of-life disposal at its core, is different. A world-first in 100% clean large format media for the printing industry, KAVALAN’S complete biodegradability not only means no harmful toxins are produced during the disposal process, but also that waste resources are able to be converted into energy, generating heat and electricity that further benefits our planet.
TAYA’s sustainability mission isn’t limited to the KAVALAN range – every office, factory area, and employee is committed to reducing carbon emissions.
From our temperature control policy to our sustainable water circulation system, from our energy-saving solar panels to our pledge to use only green packaging materials, as well as our company initiative to reject single-use plastic entitled: ‘Let’s Fight the Plastic War Together’, we are creating a low-carbon, pollution-free ecosystem to be proud of.
