Forest Stewardship, Sustainability and Conservation

AGC is progressively engaged in adopting sustainable business practices. We’ve obtained both Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) Chain-of-Custody Certification and Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) Chain-of-Custody Certification. We are committed to using environmentally friendly printing processes, including recycled/certified papers and the lowest VOC (volatile organic compound), vegetable- and soy-based inks and varnishes.

In September of 2009, AGC was named a finalist in the Crain’s Cleveland Business Emerald Awards for our progressive approach to sustainable initiatives regarding design and print. In February of 2009, AGC won a bronze award in the category of Green/Sustainable Marketing from the National Association of Printing Leadership for successfully integrating eco-minded solutions in our design and print projects. In September of 2007, AGC was the first full-service, integrated marketing services provider in Ohio to be dual certified by both the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®).

The Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®)
is an international non-profit organization that promotes responsible management of the world’s forests by recognizing products and processes that meet their rigorous environmental and social standards. Purchasing FSC® certified forest products supports environmentally responsible, socially beneficial and economically viable management of the world’s forests. Chain-of-Custody is the path taken by raw materials from the forest to the consumer, including all successive stages of processing, transformation, manufacturing and distribution.

The Sustainable Forestry Initiative®
is a comprehensive system of principles, objectives and performance measures developed by professional foresters, conservationists and scientists, among others, that combines the perpetual growing and harvesting of trees with the long-term protection of wildlife, plants, soil and water quality. There are currently over 250 million acres of forestland in North America enrolled in the SFI® program, making it among the world’s largest sustainable forestry programs.

Soy & Vegetable Based Inks
We exclusively use EcoSmart Sheetfed inks and EcoPride Blending inks and varnishes formulated with a combination of soy and vegetable oils. These inks and varnishes contain less then 3 percent petroleum distillates and less than 5 percent volatile organic compounds (VOCs), with a minimum of 45 percent renewable resource content. EcoSmart inks feature clean, dense prints with a wide range of colors, including Pantone Goe.
