Sandy Alexander On-Track to Meet 2012 Greenhouse Gas Reduction Goals

Monday, January 12, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

[Clifton, NJ – January 8, 2009] – Sandy Alexander Inc., a national leader in environmentally responsible graphic communications solutions, announced today that it was successful in  reducing its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2.85% during 2007, and is on-track to achieve its goal of cutting its total U.S. GHG emissions by 11% per dollar of revenue from 2006 CO2e levels by 2012. Sandy Alexander's announcement coincides with the company's finalization of its latest Environmental Responsibility Report, covering calendar year 2007.
 
A member of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) Climate Leaders program since 2006, Sandy Alexander's pledge to reduce its GHG emissions is part of the company's continued commitment to reduce its dependence on fossil fuels and to minimize its role in climate change. Sandy Alexander initiated its greenhouse-gas reduction effort in 2005, and in 2006 announced a seven-year commitment to use 100% clean, renewable wind power for all of the company's electrical needs as well as a capital investment to reduce natural-gas consumption.
 
"In reporting these GHG-reduction results, Sandy Alexander renews its commitment to lead our industry by example in minimizing the impact of our business on the environment," said Sandy Alexander's President, Mike Graff. "I am proud of the progress our employees have made to date, and of the level of environmental responsibility that is reflected in all of their actions."
 
Graff adds that Sandy Alexander intends to make additional substantive improvements during 2009. "In the coming year, we will continue to increase the efficiency of our processes, reduce our reliance on fossil fuels, and further reduce our volume of solid waste to landfill through recycling and reuse. Minimizing our carbon footprint and our impact on the environment through tangible actions is not just the right thing to do, its good for our business, especially in these challenging economic times."
 
The EPA's Climate Leaders program is an industry-government partnership that works with companies to develop long-term comprehensive climate change strategies. Climate Leaders partners represent a variety of industries and sectors, from manufacturers and energy providers to financial institutions and retailers. More than half of the EPA's Climate Leader Partners are Fortune 500 companies.
 
Each Partner inventories its emissions, sets a corporate-wide greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction goal, and reports information on its progress to the EPA. By reporting inventory data to EPA, each Partner creates a lasting record of its accomplishments. Partners also identify themselves as corporate environmental leaders and strategically position themselves in their market sectors as climate change policy continues to unfold.
