Green Initiatives

Good morning!

Today we will be talking about Canada’s eco-efficiency. What can businesses do to reduce their environmental footprint? What can the government do? What are you doing personally?

I’ll tell you what NCM is doing!

We are limiting the number of hardcopy edition of GOVPAGES and providing the directory in CD-ROM format as well as an on-line database that can be navigated by registered users.  The hard copies that are  being produced are printed on recycled paper approved by the Forest Stewardship Council of Canada (FSC) and printed using vegetable-based ink.

We are gradually transitioning to paperless product, thus we encourage users to sing up for the on-line database, where they can see recognize environmentally friendly businesses through an eco-efficiency icon.

Any other suggestions for us?
