Press release from the issuing company

VENTURA, Calif.- April 19, 2001 As part of the company's ongoing commitment to care for the environment, Kinko's, Inc. honored three of its branches with the company's "2nd Annual U.S. Environmental Branch of the Year" award. Kinko's University branch in Arcata, Calif. took top honors for the second consecutive year. Pittsburgh's Greentree location and the Scottsdale, Ariz. Civic Center store were first and second runners-up, respectively. The company recognized ten branches in all for their hard work and the resulting benefit to the environment. "At Kinko's, we point with pride to how we care for our environment. In fact, it's part of our Company Philosophy, which forms the foundation of how we do business," said Scott Seay, chief of field of operations for Kinko's. "I would like to personally thank all of our award-winning co-workers for their hard work and dedication to upholding Kinko's values and helping the environment." The top ten was rounded out (in order) by branches in Van Nuys, Calif.; the Pacific Avenue branch in Olympia, Wash.; West Akron in Fairlawn, Ohio; Ventura, Calif.; Fountain Square in Cincinnati, Ohio; and, tied for ninth, the Downtown branch in Orlando, Fla. and Kearny Mesa in San Diego, Calif. The "U.S. Environmental Branch of the Year" award recognizes outstanding branches for their commitment to caring for the environment and stewardship of the natural resources required by Kinko's every day. The competition is judged based on criteria that measure superior, environmentally friendly performance in employing energy conservation technologies, utilizing recycled materials, eliminating the generation of waste, recycling waste streams that are generated, and implementing in-branch and community-based environmental outreach programs.
