19th century Traditions–21st century Technology
 

Sustainability

Every step in our production process is designed to be as environmentally responsible as possible, and we strive to make the most ecologically sound choices in materials.

  • We offer a wide range of high-quality recycled papers from only the most reputable suppliers.
  • We print with eco-friendly soy-based inks, which make it easier to recycle paper.
  • We recycle metal (including printing plates), paper waste and non-reusable wood products.
  • We use water-soluble washes and reusable cloth rags for cleaning purposes.

Renewable Energy Certificates

In April 2011, we furthered our commitment to environmental responsibility by purchasing Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) to offset 100% of the electricity used by Abbey Press. By displacing the need to generate electricity using fossil fuels, this REC purchase will help avoid the emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Additionally, this purchase assists wind-energy facilities in the Midwest with production costs and provides funds to promote the advancement of wind-energy technologies.

Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Certified

We are proud to be an FSC-certified printing facility. If you want your next printing job to be recycled, renewable, sustainable, eco-friendly—we can make it happen.

The Forest Stewardship Council is a non-profit organization developed to protect the world’s forests. FSC certified products (wood and paper) are produced according to rigorous standards that apply to every step in the process, so that overall, the end product represents the highest attainable level of earth-friendliness and social responsibility.

FSC’s “chain of custody” approach affects every part of the manufacturing process, from how timber is grown and harvested, how it’s transported, how the paper is milled, how the product is stored, printing methods used, and how the people who make the products are treated. Specific criteria apply to each step in the chain, and an FSC-certified product must meet all of them.
