GREEN BY DESIGN
INDUSTRY LEADER IN PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT
As a print industry leader in sustainability, we strive to supply our clients with the knowledge on how to produce graphic communications collateral in the most environmentally friendly way without sacrificing efficiency or quality. With tri-certified for chain-of-custody responsibly sourced paper (FSC®, SFI®, PEFC™), we aim to suggest sustainable alternatives to all stock requests on every project we produce. Both our sales and manufacturing teams can work with clients to re-engineer a project to suit both their needs and the growing need for environmental responsibility.
Our other certifications include:
As part of Sandy Alexander’s support of Canopy’s ForestMapper map of global Ancient and Endangered Forests, we support the creation of a science-based conservation planning process, and advocate for the establishment of moratoria in priority ecosystems including, but not limited to, rare ecosystem types and endangered species habitat.
Our Work With Canopy
ANCIENT AND ENDANGERED FORESTS
We are working with not-for-profit Canopy to encourage governments and the forestry sector to support and advance protection of the world’s ancient and endangered forests. We are committed and proud to contribute to the creation of conservation legacies in these landscapes of hope.
FOREST LANDSCAPES OF HOPE
We are conscious of the impacts of sourcing decisions on endangered species, high conservation value forests, communities and climate, in places like the Boreal and the Broadback Forest, Coastal Temperate Rainforests and Indonesian Rainforests. We are working closely with not-for-profit Canopy on policy implementation to ensure we carefully assess our fibre sourcing to avoid ancient and endangered forest regions.
NEXT GENERATION SOLUTIONS
We are committed to the conservation of the world’s ancient and endangered forest ecosystems. As part of that commitment, we strongly support the North American commercial scale development of pulp, paper and packaging alternatives that are derived from agricultural residues like wheat straw as a way to diversity the fiber basket and meet our continued need for high quality, cost effective products.
In 2017 we founded our internal social responsibility committee known as SA Cares. With increased volunteers we have been able to expand our efforts around our local communities beyond protecting the environment. Our teams have a commitment to charity runs, local park clean-ups, coat drives, school supply drives, toy drives, and much more. We have dedicated ourselves to continue to identify additional ways to contribute to our local and global communities.
Sandy Alexander is committed to publishing a biennial Sustainability Report. In fact, we were one of the first printers to produce a completely transparent, 3rd party certified report that tracked our carbon footprint performance, energy conservation, waste reduction, and recycling on a multitude of items.
