Cenveo Anderson Lithograph Becomes A Climate Action Leader
Press release from the issuing company
LOS ANGELES, California – Cenveo Anderson Lithograph has successfully certified its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions inventory with the California Climate Action Registry, thus earning the title of Climate Action Leader. Cenveo Anderson Lithograph, a high-end printer based in Los Angeles, joined the Registry in 2003 and is now publicly reporting its certified GHG emissions through the Registry’s website at www.climateregistry.org.
The Registry’s voluntary program for calculating and reporting GHG emissions boasts over 40 members representing a wide range of California’s large and small businesses, government agencies, and national environmental organizations. All Registry members are required to report GHG emissions produced in California, and may also include emissions from operations outside of the state.
The reported emissions undergo third-party certification, which contributes to the standardization and credibility of the reporting program. Maintaining an exceptional level of data integrity, the Registry’s guidelines are considered the gold standard for GHG accounting and are based on WRI/WBCSD’s The Greenhouse Gas Protocol.
“Cenveo Anderson Lithograph’s ability to quickly and easily collect the data on our greenhouse gas emissions stems from our use of a detailed environmental management system,” said Frank Barnett, Director of Environment, Health & Safety for Cenveo Anderson Lithograph. “Adding the measurement and reporting of our greenhouse gases to this system was seen as a critical next phase in our ongoing goal to reduce our impact on the environment.”
Along with being named a Climate Action Leader by the Registry, the facility has received many a number of environmental accolades. In 2003, Cenveo Anderson Lithograph was the proud recipient of the California Governor's Environmental & Economic Leadership Award, the state’s highest and most prestigious environmental honor. Cenveo Anderson Lithograph was also awarded the SCAQMD's Clean Air Award for recognition of it outstanding contributions to improved air quality in the South Coast.
Cenveo Anderson Lithograph will continue to certify GHG emissions under the Registry program annually and plans to document significant reductions in total annual GHG emissions over time.
”Environmental responsibility is not a one-time achievement, rather it is an ongoing process, to which Cenveo Anderson Lithograph has committed itself for over 15 years; and we’ve done so to improve the health of our employees and the quality of the environment for our customers and community,” said Mark Tennant, President of Cenveo Anderson Lithograph. ”Now that we have completed the measurement of our GHG emissions, the next step is to reduce these emissions.”
Diane Wittenberg, President of the California Climate Action Registry, applauded Cenveo Anderson’s achievement “By voluntarily tracking and reporting their GHG emissions, Anderson Lithograph is making a strategic business decision to address the issue of climate change. This is something that we believe companies all over the state and the country should be doing to prepare their organizations for a carbon-constrained future.”
Additional California Registry members including Southern California Edison and LADWP will be certifying their GHG reports in the coming months. Entity wide emissions reports for all Registry members will be available at www.climateregistry.org.
