City of Industry, CA: The Pace Group is leading the way to a greener world with “net tree neutral” printing. The award-winning Los Angeles area printing services provider, in partnership with PrintReleaf, pledges to replace every single standard tree used for all its print projects. The formula for healthier forests is powerful: Print with Pace, Plant Trees.
“Best of all, our clients can print with Pace in the knowledge that, together, we are making a positive difference for our planet,” Bob Bennitt, CEO of The Pace Group, said in his announcement today. “This move is in keeping with our commitment to provide our clients the best quality available, while conducting business in harmony with the Earth. This is the most essential conservation initiative we have ever seen in our industry.”
Here is how it works: Every print project produced by Pace is measured for paper consumption. The number of trees that were harvested to produce that paper is calculated. The identical number of trees is then reforested under the guidance of PrintReleaf at planting sites around the world. This global effort restores and protects native ecologies and animal habitats, while providing much-needed jobs for people local to these sites. Importantly, all reforestation efforts are monitored and certified by a third-party auditor.
Simple, and powerful. And good.
Additionally, each Pace client can track their individual reforestation impact in real time on the PrintReleaf website. They can use that information to support their own commitment to sustainability programs.
The Pace Group has consciously built a legacy of environmental stewardship and conservation, including robust recycling and the use of vegetable-based inks and FSC-certified and recycled papers. The company has a history of supporting environmental groups, including the Humane Society of the United States, Center for a Humane Economy, Animal Welfare Action, and Yosemite Conservancy, among others. Bob Bennitt has been a board member of the Yosemite Conservancy since 1994 and served as board chair for three years. This partnership with PrintReleaf enhances and deepens The Pace Group’s sustainability legacy.
