Canopy, a not-for-profit environmental organization focused on the paper supply chain, is again asking Canadian printing companies to take part in its Green Print Leadership Survey and Report.
The results of last year’s survey were provided to major product brand companies across North America, as well as the more than 700 corporate partners that Canopy currently works with on establishing procurement policies.
Canopy’s survey is designed to identify printers demonstrating leadership on a range of environmental issues, with a primary focus on endangered forests policies, sustainability reporting, engagement on forest conservation initiatives and eco-paper procurement. It provides Canopy with raw data taht is then used to identify and promote environmentally progressive printing companies. Canopy does not assign grades, but rather makes note of environmental leadership.
“As more printers develop policies with support from Canopy, the Green Print Leadership Survey will help distinguish the leaders from the pack,” stated Marcus Ginder, Canopy’s Boreal Campaigner. “Print customers continue to seek printers that truly reflect their sustainability goals.”
Thirty-six printers, representing 254 printing plants and including three of North America’s biggest printing companies, responded to last year’s survey. The Green Print Leadership Report recognized TC Transcontinental, EarthColor, Hemlock and Sandy Alexander as standouts in their size categories.
All printers are invited to complete the online survey to gain third-party recognition for their sustainability efforts.
