RR Donnelley Expands Forest Stewardship Council Certification to Book, Commercial Printing and Mexico Facilities
Press release from the issuing company
CHICAGO, Oct. 25 -- R. R. Donnelley & Sons Company today announced that it has achieved Forest Stewardship Certification (FSC) for its domestic and Reynosa, Mexico book production facilities as well as for its short-run commercial printing facility in Manchester, Connecticut. With these new certifications, RR Donnelley offers customers the opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to using the FSC-certified papers by displaying the FSC "checkmark and tree" logo on materials produced across its entire U.S. magazine, catalog, retail insert, directory and book platform.
Forest Stewardship Certification tracks raw material chain-of-custody to assure that paper used in printed products does not originate from unsustainable, illegal, or unverified logging.
"RR Donnelley's certifications reflect our long-standing commitment to sound environmental practices," said John Paloian, Group President, Publishing and Retail Services. "The independent, third party evaluations that led to these certifications affirm that our supply chain practices support important customer needs and deliver consistency across our manufacturing platform. We are especially pleased to have extended the certification process into our facility in Reynosa, which plays such an important role in our global book production capabilities."
"With the certification of our Andrews Connecticut, an RR Donnelley company, facility, we offer customers the opportunity to use the FSC logo on printed materials produced by an award-winning short run commercial printer," added Dean Cherry, Group President, Integrated Print Solutions. "Customers can now display the FSC logo on Annual Reports, brochures, collateral materials, and other printed communications."
