Strategic Factory is Leading the Way in Sustainable Practices

April 21, 2023 / Marketing

As consumers become increasingly environmentally conscious, businesses are recognizing the importance of sustainability and the need to reduce their carbon footprint. At Strategic Factory, we recognize that as an industry leader, we have a responsibility to advocate for sustainable practices and be a steward of green initiatives. We take that commitment seriously and continuously strive to do our part by improving our environmental performance and finding new ways to enhance our initiatives.

From paper stock to promotional items, we regularly offer eco-friendly product and service options to our customers. We also invest in environmentally sound equipment, such as our DI presses that use recyclable plates, and utilize green printing materials whenever possible, like soy-based inks, which are biodegradable and emit 70% fewer volatile organic compounds (VOCs) than traditional inks. As a proponent of recycling, Strategic Factory has reduced waste by almost 33% with the help of cutting-edge software that minimizes waste production—that’s 66 tons of recycling a year!

We’re especially proud of the 100-kilowatt solar panel system installed on the roof of our main building. The system consists of 392 panels that generate approximately 130MWh of energy per year, which accounts for about 25% of the energy used at the facility. That’s 1,415,918lbs of CO2 emission saved and is equivalent to 10,970 trees planted.

Extending beyond our own operations, we partner with Trees for the Future, a non-profit organization based in Maryland, in their efforts to reverse climate change and end world hunger. The organization works around the world to plant trees and establish forest gardens, not only repairing degraded land and transforming it in a matter of months but also providing food. In proudly supporting Trees for the Future, we’ve contributed thousands of trees to the 225.1 million trees planted and 58,605 acres restored since their organization first started.

As more of our customers become eco-conscious, we’re always looking for ways to partner with others in the industry who share our values and are taking steps to reduce their environmental impact. By offering eco-friendly products and services, we look to meet the needs of customers and prospects who want to make responsible choices when it comes to their printing and branding needs. And by reducing our own carbon footprint, we hope to set an example for others to follow.

We’re always looking for new sustainable solutions to our processes and product offerings so we can help our customers make environmentally responsible choices when it comes to their business needs. By partnering with our team, you can feel good knowing that you’re making the best choice for your business and the planet. Start making a positive impact on the environment now.
