RR Donnelley Expands Forest Stewardship Council Certification to All United States and Canadian Locations

Tuesday, August 01, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

CHICAGO, July 31 -- R. R. Donnelley & Sons Company today announced that it has achieved Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) chain-of-custody certification for fifty-four additional domestic and Canadian production facilities. With these new certifications, all of RR Donnelley's United States and Canadian locations, as well as its Reynosa, Mexico facility, have achieved FSC status. Forest Stewardship Certification tracks raw material chain-of-custody to assure that paper used in printed products originates from sustainable, legal and verified logging. Certifications are granted only after a rigorous examination of raw material procurement by a third party auditor. Customers whose products are produced in a Forest Stewardship Council Certified facility may choose to display the FSC "checkmark and tree" logo on their printed materials, as another way of demonstrating their commitment to sound environmental practices. "These new certifications mean that RR Donnelley can provide from a single source the industry's broadest selection of printed materials capable of carrying the FSC logo," said Dean Cherry, RR Donnelley Group President, Integrated Print Solutions. "In producing books, magazines, catalogs, retail inserts, billing statements, operating documents, labels, financial printing, digitally printed materials, and other printed items, RR Donnelley works with our customers to support sustainable forest management." "Achieving complete FSC status across all of these North American facilities reflects our long-standing commitment to sound environmental practices," said John Paloian, Group President, Publishing and Retail Services. "We believe that RR Donnelley is the first to achieve such comprehensive certification. Our customers continue to count on us to provide leadership in developing consistent solutions to a broad variety of production challenges."
