Canopy’s Blueline Report is an invaluable resource for every business requiring printing services while also striving to meet corporate sustainability objectives.

Studies have consistently shown that the highest carbon footprint of a printed product – from Annual Reports, to catalogues, mailers, advertising inserts, books, magazines and newspapers – comes from the paper these materials are printed on.

Your business needs a print partner that can help you address this and help you meet your sustainability goals.

Canopy’s Blueline Report makes it easy. Our Business Consumer Guide ranks North America’s top printers (by sales) according to 28 criteria that assess their sustainability standards, practices and the options they offer customers. It also offers useful tips on working with your printer to improve performance, along with case studies of companies who have successfully collaborated with their print partners to move up the sustainability ladder.

The printer and the papers you choose can enhance your company’s green credentials, mitigate risk and help sustain forests, threatened species and the stability of the climate. The Blueline Report is your guide to making the right choice.

The following ranking highlights key environmental performance areas of leading North American printers assessed for The Blueline Report.

If you’re a printer and would like to work with Canopy to update your company’s assessment please contact: We invite all printers to alert us to new content and changes in their public reporting by March 31, 2016 to see their rankings change.
