Dexter Solutions offers a variety of environmentally responsible, green, and recycled content products. By fostering continuous learning and growth at each level of our organization, our employees seek opportunities to offer and recommend environmentally sustainable and eco-certified materials to support our customers’ socially responsible programs and practices. Through our FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®) certification, we maintain strict control and chain of custody of certified materials from the forest to the final product (FSC-C023401). Upon completion, these materials are certified as being produced using environmentally responsible and sustainable practices.
At present, over 60% of our products are manufactured using FSC certified or PCW (Post Consumer Waste) recycled materials to reduce the use of virgin fiber and strengthen recycled paper and tree-free paper markets.
In an effort to reduce Volatile Organic Compound emissions, we use and recommend high-performance soy- and vegetable-based inks, adhesives, and solvents; 100% of the off-set ink we purchase is soy- or vegetable-based.
We encourage our customers to proudly support these important environmental initiatives by carrying the corresponding FSC, recycled or other eco-friendly logo to demonstrate their support of environmentally responsible practices.
We conduct educational outreach programs to facilitate continuous learning around print-related sustainability opportunities. By delivering customized seminars for customers as well as our industry counterparts, we influence environmentally responsible decisions on a scale beyond the walls of our own organization.
