As we work to reduce, reuse, and recycle we increase both efficiency and sustainability."

"Our customers communicate their sustainability practices in a variety of ways and our comprehensive certifications provide another means of reflecting this on the broadest array of printed documents," commented Michael Manzella, RR Donnelley's Chief Sustainability Officer.
