natureOffice USA helps printers develop green business models

Press release from the issuing company

Henderson, NV - natureOffice USA, a consultancy that helps commercial printers convert to green printing, is proud to announce new corporate programs that make going green a cost-effective and seamless process. natureOffice USA offers comprehensive programs for printers to evaluate their environmental impact. natureOffice USA also assesses the potential savings -- from an ecological and economic perspective -- when printers convert to a green business model. With the natureOffice USA program, printers can reduce environmental impact while responding to the growing demand for eco-friendly products.

"It's time to dispel the myth that converting to green printing is too expensive and that customers won't invest in sustainability," said Erwin Hudelist, president, natureOffice USA. "Converting to green printing can be a smart environmental choice and a rewarding business decision."

natureOffice USA offers printers a complete program to develop green business models; offering eco-friendly products. The program begins with a full audit of the printer's operations. Audits examine ways printers can:
- Decrease shipping of raw materials and finished goods;
- Use more recycled paper, reduce use of toxic chemicals, and increase recycling efforts overall;
- Reduce energy consumption on the print shop floor;
- Improve waste disposal;
- Provide innovative employee training programs;
- Educate customers on the benefits of green printing;
- Increase profitability;
- Purchase certified carbon credits to mitigate specific print jobs.

"Around the world, the demand for eco-friendly products is growing," continued Hudelist. "As suppliers to virtually every industry in America, printers have a significant opportunity to reduce environmental impact while meeting customer demand for green printing."

In the natureOffice USA program, printers and their customers have the option to buy carbon credits for projects certified by the European Gold Standard. These carbon credits have tracking numbers, making it possible for anyone to verify the integrity and exact origins of each credit. natureOffice USA carbon credit projects also aim to create green jobs that support social transformation in communities hard-hit by the recession.
