03 Reduce

Pufferprint is implementing a Reduction Action Plan to reduce emissions from within its own operations and supply chain.

Current Year Reduction Actions

01

What We’re Reducing

Emissions from the materials used in our hardcover books.

How We'll Reduce It

See about sourcing only 100% recycled paper for our board-stock (the backing on hardcovers and on boardbooks). If possible, instruct our supplier to source this 100% for all books.

02

What We’re Reducing

We're working on ways to further reduce shipping emissions (our largest single source of emissions as a company) by combining packing orders together when possible.

How We'll Reduce It

Work on a promotion to provide a small discount if customers are willing to wait a few extra days to receive their samples, which will allow us to ship multiple samples together and reduce vehicle miles travelled to deliver samples to our offices for QC.

Other Sustainability Notes

Climate change presents the greatest challenge, and conversely, the greatest opportunity of our generation. We are down to the most critical 10 years to reducing emissions and so we all must decide what type of business we want to be. Pufferprint is dedicated to a "do no harm" business practice that gives back more to the planet than it takes. 2020 represents our second year of offsets and we purposefully overestimated in hopes of also offsetting some of our historical carbon debt (for years prior to 2019). We can't imagine doing business any other way. We hope our customers, authors and publishers, also appreciate having a choice in the industry that accepts responsibility for our global impact and is dedicated to taking steps to address those impacts.
