SERVICE LITHO-PRINT INC. APPLIES FOR GREEN TIER

June 10, 2014

OSHKOSH, Wis. -- The public has an opportunity to comment on an application for Wisconsin's Green Tier program by Service Litho-Print Inc. The application is for Service Litho-Print's Oshkosh facility in northeastern Wisconsin.

Service Litho-Print is applying for Tier 1 of the Green Tier program, which is designed to encourage, recognize and reward companies that are committed to superior environmental performance. Green Tier encourages businesses to voluntarily collaborate with the Department of Natural Resources (DNR). Applicants must have a good environmental record as well as implement an Environmental Management System (EMS), a framework that helps companies achieve environmental goals through consistent control of its operations.

Service Litho-Print offers sustainable packaging options to all customers and has in place a three part sustainability initiative. Service Litho-Print believes that by continuously finding ways to increase efficiency and reduce its carbon footprint, they allow the benefits to flow to its customers in reduced costs, product innovations and faster turnaround times. This commitment will be further developed through Green Tier participation and with the development of a new EMS.

The DNR will accept public comments on Service Litho-Print's Green Tier application through July 10, 2014. Comments may be directed to Jessica Lawent, Wisconsin DNR, 2300 N. Martin Luther King Dr., Milwaukee, WI, 53212, by email to Jessica.lawent@wisconsin.gov, or by calling 414-263-8653.
