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 Consolidated Graphics 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.
We support responsible management of the world’s forests, 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.
Consolidated Graphics 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.
Wentworth, and all Consolidated Graphics’ operating companies, are Forest Stewardship Council-certified by the Rainforest Alliance (FSC® C015782). The FSC® certified label provides a credible link between responsible production and consumption of forest products, enabling consumers and businesses to make purchasing decisions that benefit people and the environment as well as providing ongoing business value.

We are also certified through the Sustainable Forestry Initiative. SFI chain-of-custody certification is an accounting system that tracks fiber content through production and manufacturing to the end product. Companies can make claims about how much of their product comes from certified lands, how much contains recycled content, and how much is non-certified/non-controversial forest content.
