Press release from the issuing company

[Clifton, NJ October 16, 2006] Sandy Alexander, a national leader in environmentally responsible graphic communications solutions, has been named the Clean Power Purchaser of the year by the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (NJBPU). The State award is presented annually to the company or organization that best demonstrates leadership and advances the market for renewable clean power. Based in Clifton, New Jersey, Sandy Alexander relies on clean, wind-generated electricity to fulfill 100 percent of its electrical needs for both its Clifton and St. Petersburg, FL facilities. Sandy Alexander is also the largest consumer of green power in the printing and publishing sector, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Green Power Partnership. The company's 100% reliance on wind power is just one facet of Sandy Alexander's broader agenda, which includes FSC Chain-of-Custody certification, as well as certification to the ISO 9001:2000 quality management and ISO 14001:2004 environmental standards. "We applaud Sandy Alexander for demonstrating its leadership in the printing and publishing sector by making such a large, long-term commitment to renewable energy," said NJBPU President Jeanne M. Fox. "By making such a bold commitment to clean power, Sandy Alexander is showing its clients, its competitors, its community, and companies everywhere that it makes good business sense to take a stand to address global climate change and to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels." Sandy Alexander's annual purchases of wind power offset more than 23 million pounds of carbon dioxide (CO2) that would have been released into the atmosphere through conventional power generation. The environmental benefit of this offset is equal to reducing the CO2 emissions from more than 2,200 passenger cars each year, according to calculations based on US EPA data. "Sandy Alexander continues to lead our industry by example by reducing our environmental footprint and demonstrating that environmental responsibility is a sound business practice," said Sandy Alexander President and CEO, Roy Grossman. "We are honored to have the State of New Jersey acknowledge our efforts with this prestigious award."
