Business Management - Sustainability
As service providers switch customers from paper to electronic bills, a study conducted by Two Sides North America reveals that consumers are not pleased. The "green" claims made by these companies are being criticized for their impact on the environment and the printing industry.
We spoke with Paige Goff, vice president of sustainability at Domtar, who explains three of the biggest reasons print service providers need to think about sustainability now.
Nekoosa announced Nekoosa Promise, a new portfolio of sustainable print media comprised of new and existing PVC-free alternatives for promotional signage, graphic displays, and more.
In this partnership, Domtar has committed to working with local small forest landowners to plant two trees for every registration made for the 2023 PRINTING United Expo.
Furthering Canon U.S.A.'s sustainability initiatives, employees at the Canon Americas headquarters in Melville, New York were invited to bring in gently-used books for a program run by Book Fairies. The company contributed 470lbs. of donated books for people in need.
As U.S. consumers become increasingly aware of the environmental impacts of the products they use, there remains a wide gap between perception and reality when it comes to the sustainability of paper products. A new survey details this misunderstanding.
Sustainability is a hot topic among college students, who are willing to spend 10% more for sustainable products. In one ACUP+ session, Dylan Turner of Northern Arizona University detailed how his in-plant is getting ahead of this trend and decreasing its carbon footprint.
In a last minute and shocking action by the Washington State legislature, a bill making its way through the legislative process was amended to include a ban of all printing inks and paints that use chlorinated pigments. If this ban were enacted, it would have a devastating impact on the printing industry.
