Responsibility

We define sustainability as meeting the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.

Operating in multiple geographies—and running a company with paper at its core—Wentworth and RR Donnelley are extremely aware of the interdependence and fragility of our world. We consider it our foremost responsibility to operate in ways consistent with maintaining the quality of our environment, including recycling, using earth-friendly inks and doing business with other like-minded entities. In every choice we make, we strive to behave in ways generations to follow us will respect.

Environmental Stewardship

As a leader in the commercial printing industry and a good corporate citizen, Wentworth is committed to protecting our environment and taking responsible actions to ensure that we continue to minimize our impact on the environment. We will continue to operate in full compliance with local, state and federal environmental regulations regarding air emissions and the disposal of waste materials to land and water; and we will continue to adopt new, environmentally-friendly printing processes and methods as they are introduced in our industry.

We support responsible management of the world’s forests and value business solutions that promote sound environmental stewardship. Wentworth also practices conscientious recycling of all its major consumable materials and will continuously invest in equipment to increase the environmental friendliness of all operations. Wentworth uses soy-based inks and recycles 98% of all paper waste produced during the manufacturing process. We also recycle all aluminum press plates.

RR Donnelley offers an exclusive brand of environmentally responsible paper: Inspire Earth. Superior characteristics include 10% Post Consumer Waste, triple forest certification and outstanding printability that equates to less waste.  For a swatch book or more information, contact us.
