The one word that captures the essence of IPW is – sustainability. Sustainability is reality today and customers are going to demand it!
Businesses must be sustainable. To be sustainable, a company must be profitable and must have the ability to compete in the marketplace. IPW’s support to the Printing Industry and to our members is fundamentally based on sustainability, leadership and environmental stewardship.
IPW is proud to be closely associated with an industry
where the primary raw material is one of the most sustainable materials on our plant – that material is paper. Throughout our twelve-year history, IPW procurement solutions have team teamed with environmentally savvy suppliers, many of who are leading industry sustainability. The best-of-the-best include Domtar, Kodak, Agfa and Sun Chemical. IPW fully endorses this recent statement by the President of Domtar:
“For us, sustainability is not a “buzzword”. It is a comprehensive framework whose three pillars – the environment, the economy and society – are fully embedded into our daily activities. Sustainability guides our policy-making, our operational decisions, the way we source our materials, and how we treat our employees, customers and other stakeholders.”
