“balancing the needs of our employees, customers, suppliers, and communities”
Good citizenship is our concern both at home and around the world.
We believe that balancing the needs of our employees, customers, suppliers, and communities is an important part of our heritage, as well as our future success.
With that philosophy as a core belief of Elanders Americas, we support a wide variety of charitable programs, institutions, and activities that enhance the communities in which our employees live and work.
Our involvements include:
Financial support of qualifying programs, as determined by our internal Contributions Committee.
Contributing our expertise and talents on investment panels and organizational committees, or by serving as board members and directors of local non-profit organizations.
Providing employees of Elanders Americas the time they request to volunteer and serve the people of their communities in ways that interest them.
Helping to innovate new services through involvement in pilot and start-up programs supporting youth in our communities.
Environmental Stewardship and Sustainability
Within our Elanders Americas facilities, aggressive programs are already in place to constantly reduce waste, minimize energy consumption and to utilize technology to improve our processes.
As you might imagine, our print facilities were early adopters of paper recycling. Today, we recycle any reusable item – including paper, plastics, chemicals, and waste water– in our aggressive approach to eliminate any impact on our environment.
When printed products are the best and most desirable form of communications, our overriding goal is to minimize our company’s environmental impact without affecting the quality of the printed product. Interest for climate neutral printed matter grew in 2011 and Elanders intensified its cooperation with paper suppliers to further reduce waste.
As evidence of our success, we have earned certifications from:
Forest Stewardship Council ® (FSC ®)
Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI)
Rest assured that energy efficiency, supply usage, ergonomics, and safety are regularly scrutinized within our operations and carefully considered when purchasing our new equipment.
At Elanders Americas, we are active participants in taking care of the planet we all share.
