sustainability

Because it’s the right thing to do.

Facts Speak Loudest

Sustainability is often something committed to in thought and word, but seldom carried out and measured — our goal at Bolger is to change that. By caring for our immediate surroundings, we aspire to affect the wider world.

Using our company platform to encourage sustainability in our industry.

SGP-Certified Facility

When choosing a printer, choices matter.

We are one of the first printing companies in the United States to be an SGP-certified printing facility. As an SGP-certified facility, we must pass environmental, health and safety, indoor air quality, and energy audits by an independent, third party. We’ve dedicated a team of employees to coordinate ongoing sustainability efforts and processes.

It’s one thing to talk like an environmental steward, it’s another thing to be one.

Caring for the environment isn’t only about FSC and recycled paper. In fact, it’s less about those items and more about committing to the environment and constantly measuring that commitment. As a customer of print and digital communications, you have every right to look behind the curtain of words on a website and ask to see what is measured and what the results of those measurements are.
