Press release from the issuing company
[CLIFTON, NJ, March 17, 2006] -- Sandy Alexander, Leaders in Printing and the Environment, today announced that it has obtained certification under the Center for Resource Solutions’ Green-e Renewable Energy Certification Program for its 100% reliance on Green-e certified wind-generated energy to run its Clifton, NJ, printing, bindery, and office operations. Sandy Alexander is the largest consumer of green power in the printing and publishing sector, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Power Partnership, of which Sandy Alexander is a member.
To qualify for Green-e certification, Sandy Alexander was required to submit its seven-year commitment to purchase 9,000 megawatt hours (MWh) per year of Green-e certified wind power for certification by the Center for Resource Solutions. Sandy Alexander’s total reliance on wind-generated electricity is part of the company’s overarching initiative to reduce printing’s environmental impact on the planet. Sandy Alexander purchases its wind-generated power through Pennsylvania-based Community Energy, a Green-e certified company.
“Our environmentally conscious clients benefit directly from our certification under the Green-e program,” says Chip Stine, Sandy Alexander’s Senior VP of Sales. “Companies choosing to print with us can now demonstrate their own environmental commitment by including the Green-e seal on their printed pieces. It is a highly credible, third-party verified claim that will resonate with their customers, shareholders and stakeholders.”
"Sandy Alexander stands out as a leader in the printing and publishing industry through their strong commitment to Green-e certified renewable energy," says Këri Bolding, Director of Communications at the Center for Resource Solutions, "By powering their printing facilities with wind power, and promoting this commitment to their customers with the Green-e logo, they are setting an outstanding example for both their competitors and their customers."
