Becoming a Top Green Printer the Hemlock Way
It’s a combination of elements—quality, pricing, and environmental sensitivity—that all come together. We are seeing more requests for proposal (RFPs) that have environmental specifications where we are measured against other companies. We know we’ve been awarded contracts in part because of our environmental initiatives.
We’ve learned from, networked with, and shared practices with other companies in our community to broaden the effects of these programs. We readily share what has worked for us and where we have found the biggest impacts.
Next week: Dick Kouwenhoven will talk about measuring the results of Hemlock’s green initiatives, the company’s incentives and reporting, and working with designers to create projects that are recyclable or reusable.
