Abstract:John Roberts Company, a large commercial printer located in Minneapolis, MN, has installed a new ink pumping system that has reduced ink waste by over 2,000 pounds per year, which has translated into a savings of about $20,000 per year. The ink pumping system has allowed John Roberts to extend its commitment to managing all of its operations in an environmentally sound manner. The company’s published Environmental Policy states that its intention to involve employees, suppliers and customers in applying the principle that to conduct business at the expense of the environment is simply unacceptable. John Roberts has vowed to minimize the company’s intrusion on the environment through awareness, understanding, education and action.
