DistribuTech received the gold award for the Most Progressive Printing Process at the 2007 Environmental Printing Awards held on February 21st at the Palais Royale in Toronto. The Environmental Printing Awards recognizes environmental leadership within the graphic arts, communications and printing industry.
DistribuTechs recognition was based on the implementation of a specific technology or process designed to reduce or eliminate practices harmful to the environment.
We were thrilled to be recognized at the EPA states David Reeve, President of DistribuTech. This award underscores our commitment to the environment and also our close partnership with Hewlett-Packard Canada.
Hewlett-Packard, one of DistribuTechs clients, was experiencing high rates of return mail in their B2B direct marketing efforts. The average rate of mail that was being returned as undeliverable was approximately 15 per cent in 2005. DistribuTech responded with a solution that has dramatically reduced the undeliverable mail rates for the client, resulting in increased ROI for their programs, reduced cost and a significant reduction in waste associated with print production and delivery of direct mail pieces that were undeliverable.
This award is very important to HP as it not only recognizes a marketing innovation and vision that was developed in partnership to solve a business problem, but it also recognizes our environmental commitment to reduce the impact of our products, services and operations. Our environmental commitment spans across many topics ranging from product design, reuse and recycling, energy efficiency, materials innovation and ensuring that our supply chain operates in an environmentally conscious manner, states Sandra Pakosh, Manager of Marketing Communication for HP Canadas Technology Solutions Group.
