Green

Kingery Printing understands the importance of providing eco-friendly commercial printing services. From our chain of custody certifications to the soy ink we use, and even to the lighting initiatives in our plant – we take care to be good stewards for our environment.

Certification

Kingery Printing Company's Chain of Custody Commitment:

What is Chain of Custody? Chain of Custody is the unbroken path which products take from the forest to the consumer, including all stages of manufacturing, transformation and distribution.

Chain of Custody certification tracks fiber from certified forests, certified sourcing and recycled content through production and manufacturing to the end product.  Companies can use chain of custody certification to track and communicate forest fiber content through the supply chain.

Chain of Custody certification is required whenever a company carries out any physical alterations to the timber / products, they take physical or legal ownership of the timber / product and whenever a company wishes to make independent use of the FSC® or SFI® trademarks.

Chain of Custody Certificates

In 2009, Kingery Printing Company became bi-certified for Chain of Custody standards established by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI) and Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC).

Green Initiatives

Kingery Printing Company has embarked on a variety of green initiatives. One of the most important environmental considerations includes recycling. Kingery Printing Company recycles more than 90% of their scrap waste. Other recyclable materials from the plant include ink, aluminum, metal strapping, cardboard and plastics.

Other green initiatives include facility upgrades to reduce our footprint, such as the installation of a humidification system to stabilize the moisture content of lightweight paper stocks. We also realized a significant energy reduction by participating in Ameren's Act On Energy® program, which included the installation of motion-activated lighting systems, and more efficient fluorescent lighting fixtures throughout the facilities.
