Sensormatic Solutions Showcases New, Sustainable SPX AM Label Designed to Protect Merchandise and the Environment

Sensormatic Solutions, the global retail solutions portfolio of Johnson Controls, is showcasing 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 organization 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 and product general manager, loss prevention and liability and inventory intelligence, 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.”

US shoppers are taking a stronger position when it comes to sustainability. According to Sensormatic Solutions’ US Consumer Sentiment Survey, over 70 percent of consumers would change their shopping habits after learning a brand isn’t operating sustainably. These trends 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 percent plastic-free and made from renewable materials, this sustainable SPX AM Label can help reduce the 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, 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.
