RESCO earns 'green' certification

Local printing firm RESCO, 1450 Heggen St., recently completed certification in the Great Printer Environmental Initiative administered through the Printing Industry of Minnesota Inc.

The initiative is the country's longest-running certification program exclusively for the printing industry. Members go through an audit process which assures compliance with all applicable environmental, health and safety requirements.

In addition to passing the audit, members must commit to the program standards and complete ongoing projects in subsequent years that go beyond compliance by minimizing, reusing or recycling waste, and increasing energy efficiency. This is a voluntary program aimed at increasing environmental, health and safety compliance and pollution prevention within the printing industry.

RESCO has implemented several recycling and energy conservation projects and continues to explore additional ways to increase recycling and conserve energy in its operation.

"We are proud to be a member of the Great Printer program and do our part to reduce waste and improve in several areas of improved sustainability," said President John Knutson. "This certification demonstrates RESCO's commitment to go beyond what is required by regulatory agencies in environmental, health and safety."
