ECO3 Green Works leaves 1200x800

Every GreenWorks customer receives a marketing toolkit to help promote their environmental stewardship. It includes the GreenWorks logo, GreenWorks Certified digital badge and suggested ways to promote their business. In addition, accredited GreenWorks companies receive content for their website & RFPs, a press release template, digital ad templates, infographics that can be used in email and social media communications, search engine optimization keyword support and professional guidance to help market their environmentally-safer practices.

GreenWorks accredited companies may also be featured in ECO3 public relations, testimonial campaigns, and on the ECO3 website, providing further exposure if desired. Buyers today are increasingly committed to environmental safety. All things being equal, the environment can play a strong role in tipping the scales in your favor.

A track record in developing environmental solutions

ECO3 critically examines environmental and safety issues through each stage of a product’s life cycle to provide best manufacturing practices and solutions that meet our customers’ business needs as well as reduce waste and resource consumption. Some of these include:

  • Plate systems that reduce waste, chemistry and energy use
  • Chemistry with reduced Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) or gases emitted from some solids or liquids that contribute to ground-level air pollution
  • Workflows that reduce waste (paper, ink, etc.) throughout the production chain

How to qualify

To be accredited, customers must meet the following criteria demonstrating their environmental commitment, including:

  • Using ECO3’s environmentally-safer chemistry-free, process-free or no bake digital offset plates, such as Adamas, Avatar T-ZP, Azura TS, Azura TU, Eclipse Pro, Energy Elite Pro, Energy Elite Eco, N95-VCF, all of which have significant environmental benefits compared to conventional digital plates.
  • Using ECO3’s ink-saving solutions including PressTune, InkTune and SPIR@L screening technology, key elements of ECO3's philosophy of focusing on ecology, economy and extra convenience. These products can reduce ink consumption up to 30% while maintaining or even increasing print quality.
  • Actively recycling, participating in community waste reduction, conservation programs or using recycled materials or alternative energy sources in their plants.
  • Spreading the word; companies must promote and communicate the benefits of practicing environmental safety.
  • Using products that maximize renewable resources, minimize environmental impact from toxic chemicals, or reduce waste, and lower ink, water or energy consumption.
  • Participating in other environmental programs such as SFI and FSC.

To apply for GreenWorks accreditation

To be accredited, customers must meet all criteria demonstrating their environmental commitment. To be considered for GreenWorks accreditation, please contact the GreenWorks program manager, Dave Carey.

There is no limit to the number of company locations that can receive GreenWorks accreditation.
