● We’ve acquired the Ivy League of Eco-Certifications:
SFI Certified: We purchase paper that originates from certified North American lands. They are committed to continual growing and harvesting of trees while maintaining biodiversity and water quality. Since we don’t want to see 3-eyed fish, this is a good certification to have.
FSC Certified: The Forest Stewardship Council’s standards represent the world’s strongest system for guiding responsible forest management. We are proud to be certified.
PIM Great Printer Certified: We met the Print Industry of Minnesota’s certification criteria by complying with their environmental, health and safety requirements; minimizing waste, reusing and recycling waste, maximizing our energy efficiency; and by pursuing continuous environmental, health and safety improvements.
Nearly 17% of the energy used in our facility is from sustainable resources. In addition to sustainable energy use, we have made other wise decisions regarding our energy usage and have lowered our carbon emissions by 210 metric tons.
Vegetable inks and water based flexo limit the amount of volatile organic compounds being released in the air. By standard use of vegetable based inks and water based flexo at Johnson Anderson, we have created a safe working environment for our employees and less contamination in mother nature’s lungs.
We do not own delivery trucks since they generally return empty handed. That’s just not efficient. We instead use a reliable, eco-friendly delivery service that plants a tree for every delivery made. If they planted maple trees for every one of our deliveries, we could potentially be responsible for a lot of syrup! Think Johnson Anderson when you think of pancakes. Back to being serious; we also recycle roughly 120,000 lbs of paper a month.
Being environmentally conscious extends further than saving the environment. It’s also about bettering the quality of life for others. Through the use of seamless partnerships, we are able to promote local commerce and save on global energy consumption in one fell swoop
The environment is defined by that which surrounds you. To protect the environment as best we can, we also include community involvement in that category so we truly, march to the beat of a different drum.
