Green Printing is an approach that extends well beyond printed materials.
At Loftin & Company, we’re always looking for ways to make printed communications more efficient, both economically and environmentally. Annually we are audited to the Forest Stewardship Council® Chain of Custody standard to maintain our certification, further solidifying our commitment to environmentally sound print and plant management practices. That’s why our guiding principles extend beyond Chain-of-Custody (CoC) certification guidelines to encompass eco-friendly best practices in all aspects of our business.
As leaders in our industry, we proactively serve as an example in re-thinking every aspect of the way we do business – from paper choices that are elemental chlorine free, to full electronic management, to advising clients on how to make printed pieces fully recyclable. We were also early adopters of digital and print on-demand technologies, allowing our customers to greatly reduce waste by ordering only the quantities demanded by their end users and customers.
While many industries are trying to clean up their acts, the printing industry has had its hands full. Issues like ink waste, diesel truck shipping, and the use of chemicals and solvents have presented the industry with no shortage of challenges in the quest to become eco-friendly.
Traditionally, our industry has made use of a wide array of inks, solvents, lacquers, dyes, acids, resins, driers and other chemicals in the print process. Now, due to the proactive steps that Loftin & Company is incorporating, things are changing. We’re proud to take an active role in ushering in that change. We’re making great strides in pushing our industry towards more responsible practices without sacrificing quality.
We invite you to learn more about the exciting things we are doing and how we can help your company achieve its green goals. Contact a Loftin & Company representative today at 704.393.9393.
