Sustainability

Our Commitment

Alcom is committed to implement sound environmental, health and safety (EHS) practices in every facet of our business. Our passion for continuous improvement and ongoing communication with EHS issues will exceed regulated expectation; execute source reduction, pollution prevention, reuse and recycling. We consider this responsibility an opportunity to encourage enthusiasm for the sustainability of the environment; through the continued quest for knowledge we will educate and engage our stakeholders who are our colleagues, family, friends and community leaders.

Alcom became the 13th printer in the United States to be certified as a sustainable green printer by the Sustainable Green Printing Partnership. We believe in doing what we can to maintain the health and viability of the world in which we live. The SGP encourages participation in the worldwide movement to reduce environmental impact and increase social responsibility of the print and graphic communications industry. This certification is given to those who have built an ongoing sustainable approach to doing business every day to minimize the impact on our environment and yours.

Our  Policy

The definition of industry sustainability that Alcom accepts is “adopting strategies and activities that allow a company and its stakeholders to realize their profit goals in ways that protect, sustain, and restore the Earth’s life support systems.”  While Alcom’s commitment to the environment is strong and ever increasing, so is its commitment to the quality of its products and customer satisfaction.  Therefore, Alcom will always work to reduce its carbon footprint by exploring new means of recycling, waste reduction, chemical usage, ink usage, supply sourcing, etc., so long as it does not compromise the ultimate quality of the products Alcom provides.

Alcom commits to continue to research and implement acceptable alternatives to current processes where necessary and feasible, and to always adhere to the guiding principals of the Sustainable Green Printing Partnership.  Alcom commits to achieving and maintaining EHS regulatory compliance while continuing to demonstrate continuous improvement of the facility’s sustainability performance.  Alcom commits to educating its customers on the values of sustainable printing and will urge customers to consider the environment in the printing choices they make.  And, finally Alcom commits to remaining an industry leader in visual communications by ensuring that our green vision does not interrupt customer satisfaction or product quality, but rather coincides with it so that we may e a model corporation for others seeking effective ways to become sustainable without product sacrifice.

Review. Re-Tool. Re-Train.

Alcom has implemented a sustainability management system (SMS) that measures specific steps to reduce our environmental footprint. We have implemented pollution prevention activities and committed to fundamental social and ethical norms. Alcom provides annual reporting and takes part in an independent biennial certification audit to assure we are doing all we can to make our facility, our processes and our work habits healthy for our employees and our planet.
