Canopy Looking for North America's Greenest Printers
TORONTO—Canopy, a not-for-profit environmental organization, is looking for North America’s greenest printers.
The Green Print Leadership Survey will be circulated to 50 "top" printers in North America, and all other printers are being invited to take part.
“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 Green Print Leadership Survey is strictly confidential according to Canopy, and is intended to provide the raw data to identify and recognize North America’s greenest printers.
The results will be released as Canopy's Green Print Leadership List, available publicly to the growing number of large scale print customers. Canopy said it will begin promoting the Green Print Leaders in the fall of 2012, through trade outlets, conventional news outlets, Canopy’s web site and social media, and more than 700 corporate partners.
All printers are invited to complete the voluntary, no-fee online survey to gain third party recognition of their sustainability efforts.
