The Printing House has been recognized as one of Canada’s Greenest Employers for 2018, based on the criteria of Mediacorp Canada Inc., which manages Canadian employment programs and events. Mediacorp explains The Printing House’s green volunteerism goes hand-in-hand with its philosophy of being eco-friendly in its operations.
TPH explains that 93.7 percent of the paper it purchased in 2017 was environmentally certified, with 91.5 percent of the paper designated as Forest Stewardship Council-certified. “Our continued goal is to inch ahead to 100 percent,” said Andrew O’Born, VP of Business Development.
TPH, among a range of initiatives, also points to recognition as the most sustainable and forest friendly printer in Canada – number two in North America – by Canopy in 2017, as well as its implementation of a Paper Procurement Policy in 2015, with guidelines provided by not-for-profit partner Canopy. This policy ensures TPH is not sourcing from ancient and endangered forest hotspots.
