The health and safety of our environment is serious business. And because connecting audiences through ink on paper is such a big part of what we do, we actively work to make our direct mail production responsible and sustainable. In fact, we recycle thousands of tons of paper, cardboard, scrap metal, mixed plastic, and wood pallets each year—all of which drives us toward leadership in sustainable printing. We are committed to using paper that originates from forests managed in a sustainable, environmentally responsible way. IWCO Direct is Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) Chain-of-Custody certified by the Rainforest Alliance. The FSC is a nongovernmental, nonprofit organization that promotes the responsible management of the world’s forests and the Rainforest Alliance is an international, nonprofit organization committed to conservation and sustainable development. Together, they help ensure forest operations meet comprehensive standards that protect the environment and the rights and welfare of workers, their families, and communities.
Our end-to-end direct mail services platform delivers all the components of a successful direct mail campaign. But it also works to reduce common forms of waste and improve production processes. Our focus on sustainability, combined with our Lean manufacturing principles, drives efficiency, reduces our carbon footprint, and reduces material use and transportation—all of which make our customers (and Mother Earth) happier.
