Canopy, a Vancouver-based not-for-profit organization primarily focused on the paper-supply chain, has launched a new initiative which aims to identify the most environmental printers in North America. The organization will circulate a survey to identify the ones demonstrating the highest green standards.
“Customers with sustainability goals, paper procurement policies and environmental programs are asking for our help to identify printers who embrace their green goals," said Neva Murtha, Canopy Print Campaigner. “Our new survey is responding to the needs of a growing green marketplace by distinguishing printers moving forward on issues of sustainable paper purchasing and forest protection.”
The survey will be confidential, with no failing grades assigned for participants.
“As more printers develop policies with support from Canopy, the Green Print Leadership Survey will help refine and distinguish the leaders from the pack,” added Marcus Ginder, Canopy Print Campaigner.
All printers are invited to complete the voluntary, no-fee online survey to gain third-party recognition of their sustainability efforts. The survey can be found here.
