We are pleased to announce that we've been awarded the Acterra Business Environmental Award in the small business category for Pollution Prevention/Resource Conservation.
The Acterra judges recognized Greenerprinter's leadership in the industry: "Greenerprinter is making its operations as waste-free as possible and educating both its suppliers and customers to do the same," said Walt Hays, Judging Team Captain. "By using high post-consumer recycled paper, and low VOC ink, the company is taking a lead in greening a traditionally inefficient industry. It regularly seeks to educate and exchange ideas with customers and peers at industry events and via social media outlets. Because of these efforts, we are pleased to recognize Greenerprinter for its environmental leadership in the printing industry."
Acterra's Business Environmental Awards is one of the San Francisco Bay Area's oldest and most prestigious environmental recognition programs. Initiated in 1990, it is considered a heavyweight among award programs due to its rigorous application and judging process. "Our awardees must demonstrate their environmental commitment and achievements through a careful vetting process," states Board President Laura Teksler. "In addition to a thorough written application, the top contenders must demonstrate their programs' merits firsthand to the judges during a visit to the applicants' facilities. By the time they are selected to receive our award, they have truly proven that their programs are "setting the bar" in corporate environmental leadership."
The official awards reception was held on Thursday, June 3rd in Palo Alto, California, and Greenerprinter was recognized alongside some very impressive organizations such as Applied Materials, Inc., Adobe Systems, Webcor Builders and the City of San Jose.
