Socially Responsible Practices

Sustainable Forestry
Twenty-six U.S. production facilities have obtained certifications with the Forest Stewardship Council® and/or Sustainable Forestry Initiative®. Through FSC® and SFI® chain of custody systems, we help customers demonstrate their commitment to responsible forest management and label their products with the FSC or SFI trademark.
Avoiding Endangered Hot Spots
Taylor carefully manages our fiber sourcing to avoid ancient and endangered forest regions, including North America’s boreal forest, coastal temperate rainforests and Indonesian rainforests.
Through a focused effort, Taylor was able to recycle more than 31,000 tons of waste materials in 2020 (paper, plastic, metals, electronics, etc.), representing 78% of our total waste tonnage.
Waste Reduction
Taylor used more than 4,000 tons of its non-recyclable waste from 19 sites to create energy in 2020, yielding a diversion-from-landfill rate over 87%. We have 10 “landfill free” locations in Minnesota, two in Indiana, and one each in Florida, Hawaii and Pennsylvania.
Water Conservation and Reclamation
Our main product lines involve label and paper converting, with minimal use of water in the production process. Effluents from Taylor facilities are directed to local municipal water treatment plants where they are treated and recycled through the municipality. Any and all permits are in place for these municipalities.
Replacing Volatile Organic Compounds
Decades ago we stopped using petroleum-based inks in offset printing and adopted vegetable (soy) based inks instead. This transformation from alcohol/solvent-based to synthetic-based material is much safer for employees and the environment. We also purchase carbonless paper that uses vegetable-based carbonless capsules.
Our Approach
Taylor has earned national recognition for its commitment to sustainability by following a three-pronged approach grounded in responsible sourcing, recycling and resource management.
Sustainability Goals
Each year, Taylor analyzes data to plan sustainability-minded projects that increase efficiency and protect the environment for the future. In 2020 we were able to surpass both our waste-to-energy diversion and recycling goals for the year despite lower production volumes.
Sustainability Scorecard
Taylor is committed to maintaining high standards by serving as responsible managers of natural resources, being good corporate citizens and protecting the health and safety of our employees, clients and visitors. We grade ourselves annually and report results in our Sustainability Scorecard.
