Sustainable Print Matters: An Introduction to Green-e re:print

Businesses in the Mid-Atlantic region are more concerned than ever about both the environmental impact of their operations and their bottom line. Green-e, a leader in renewable energy since 1997, has created a new supply chain sustainability tool that can help organizations lower their printing footprint and drive opportunities to connect with new customers. Participants in this webinar joined Orrin Cook, Green-e Marketplace Manager, for an introduction to the Green-e re:print program and Laura Pagliarulo, Manager, Green Products, WGES, to hear how the company has implemented and benefited from the program.
