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.
 
Recycling
 
Through a focused effort, Taylor was able to recycle over 40,000 tons of waste materials in 2019 (paper, plastics, metals, etc.), representing about 80% of our total waste tonnage. We also recycled 40 tons of electronics.
 
Waste Reduction
 
Taylor used more than 3,900 tons of its non-recyclable waste from 19 sites to create energy in 2019, yielding a diversion-from-landfill rate of 87%. We have 10 “landfill free” locations in Minnesota, two in Indiana, one in Pennsylvania and one in Florida.
 
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.
Capabilities-Sustainability-Goals
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.
