Sensormatic Solutions, the leading global retail solutions portfolio of Johnson Controls, today showcases a new, sustainable Acousto-Magnetic (AM) label designed to protect merchandise and the planet: the Sustainable SPX AM Label.  With the new patent-pending label, the organisation replaced previous polystyrene with renewable, Forest Stewardship Council (FSCTM)-certified material, ultimately helping retailers with their sustainability objectives while safeguarding against shrink.

Responsible retail has long been central to our mission, and advancements in manufacturing processes and material options are helping us continue to champion our vision for a more sustainable future,” said Craig Szklany, vice president & product general manager, Loss Prevention & Liability and Inventory Intelligence of Sensormatic Solutions.  “Meaningful change begins with one action, and many of our retail customers are taking stronger stances on eco-friendly initiatives.  This new label can give retailers another easy, accessible way to do their part to protect the planet and move the needle on helping reduce environmental impact while maintaining precision loss prevention.”

According to research in Sensormatic Solutions’ recent report – Europe: The Green Shopper – 48% of consumers would be more likely to buy from a retailer that offered more sustainable packaging, where less packaging was used and materials that were used could be recycled.  This shopper sentiment along with the ‘Directive on Single Use Plastics’ which took effect in the European Union in July 2021, played a key role in Sensormatic Solutions’ decision to focus on plastic-free materials rather than recycled plastic for a more positive impact on the environment:

Designed to reduce environmental impact.  The label is created using FSC-certified material, fabricated using eco-friendly manufacturing processes and shipped in recyclable packaging.  With a design that is over 90% plastic-free and made from renewable materials, this sustainable SPX AM Label can help reduce environmental impact.

Adopt sustainable practices with fewer barriers to entry.  Sensormatic Solutions SPX AM Labels are making it easier for retailers to answer the call to pursue responsible practices.  That’s because material innovations integrated within the label help reduce waste during Sensormatic Solutions manufacturing processes.  Additionally, the FSC’s sustainable forestry standards translate into tangible actions that make a positive impact on the world’s forests.

Protect high-risk items without impacting customer experiences.  The label’s versatile design fits various packaging form factors, so retailers can effectively protect difficult-to-tag items, without the friction that comes with locks or cases.  The SPX AM Labels offer the same high-quality performance retailers expect from Sensormatic Solutions and are compatible with the brand’s existing AM ecosystem of solutions, and are precision-tuned for reliable detection and deactivation.

Sustainability has always been a focus for Sensormatic Solutions, and it’s woven into its processes and facilities, products, solutions, and services.  The SPX AM Label is part of these efforts while also maintaining the same quality, durability and reliability that the brand has been known for since its inception in 1966.  The SPX AM Labels will be available later this year.
