The TLMI Educational Webinar Series
Paper: How to Source Responsibly

March 25, 2019 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EDT

What can companies do to ensure their paper is sourced responsibly? Since the majority of forests are not certified, learn what tools and verification methods are available and how you can develop an action plan for your paper procurement strategy. Join Tom Pollock, Sr. Manager at Green Blue and leader of The Forest Product Working Group, which is developing a responsible sourcing tool for paper; and Nathan Truitt, VP of Strategic Partnerships at American Forest Foundation. Nate designs forest conservation programs that meet the needs of companies, landowners, and other stakeholders. You will come away with a better understanding of why responsible sourcing is important and what you can do to ensure your paper meets the needs of your customers’ sustainability programs.

TLMI takes the meaning of sustainability literally – the ability to keep doing what we’re doing. We know that our member businesses can play a vital role in the continuing growth of our industry and we know the importance of being responsible stewards of our planet’s finite resources.   

Change begins with me. With this thought in mind, TLMI provides resources for our members, including an environmental management system designed specifically for the label industry; and committees where collaboration on environmental topics can enable understanding, and commitment to re-define value.

Change involves more than me. TLMI collaborates with like-minded associations in a holistic approach to resource minimization and recycling solutions. We actively participate with other organizations, including the Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR) and the Sustainable Packaging Coalition (SPC), so our members can take meaningful action toward packaging sustainability.

In a world where brands and retailers are leveraging their entire supply chain to tackle sustainable development goals, TLMI provides a vast cross-section of resources so that our members are well prepared to face any challenge, both long and short term.
