Hi Cary,
Would you please share with my your source behind the statement indicating print as the world's #2 polluter?:

"Of equal—and related—importance, there was also a focus on sustainability, with a goal of reducing the industry’s environmental impact: it’s the world’s Number 2 polluter, not a good thing."

Barb, the 2nd largest polluter is the textiles industry as a whole. This was not referring to the commercial print/packaging industry
