Clif Bar and Sustainability

We're working to understand the impact of everything we do—from farmers' fields to our final products. Ultimately, we hope to become not just a more sustainable business, but also a restorative one.

Founded on a love of the outdoors and a passion for making and enjoying good food, we recognize that we need to reduce our footprint through the food we make. As our business grows, being profitable sustains our business, but equally important are our four other aspirations—or bottom lines: sustaining our brands, our people, our community, and the planet.

Printing Green

On Earth Day 2001, we formally launched our sustainability program, making a commitment to green our business. As we evaluated our business practices, transitioning from traditional printing to green printing was a natural progression for us. Conversations began to happen with our business partners; Greenerprinter being one of them. Through their services, Greenerprinter educated us about the importance of green printing and helped us support our aspirations of sustaining the planet and sustaining our business.

Green Printing & Sustainability

Making the change to green printing helped educate our organization about the importance of using less paper and utilizing the latest green printing technologies. Supporting Greenprinter in their efforts helps us meet the commitment we made to lessen our environmental footprint in 2001.
