This spring, Canopy will publish the annual Blueline Report, a comprehensive guide to the environmental performance of North America’s largest printers. The report, which actually ranks these printers based on environmental performance, is designed to help print consumers identify those suppliers that are being environmentally responsible.

Canopy will be assessing and ranking major printers on a set of 28 criteria, including fibre preference, sourcing policies, certified and recycled paper availability, transparency and CSR reporting.

In 2016, Canopy’s report found that seven of North America’s largest printers had entered the top 10 in the sustainability ranking.

“With customer demand for environmental print continuing to strengthen, we look forward to reporting on significant progress by North America’s leading printers,” Nicole Rycroft, Canopy founder and Executive Director, says.

Printers aiming to improve their ranking must post their sustainability progress on their Websites by April 30.
