As I wrote last month, my firm was honored to receive a green business award at the Boston Business Journal Green Business Summit. We were especially excited to be the only firm in the marketing services space to be recognized. Many thanks to our client, Zipcar, for nominating us.
The summit was held last Friday, 5/15/09, and we were presented with our award (even the plaque was made with recycled materials!). Please click here for a list of the other winners.
Here’s a summary of the main points of the article that appeared in Friday’s issue about why my firm, Grossman Marketing Group, was recognized:
- We were the first marketing & printing company in our region to offset 100% of its energy with certified wind power – and offer that eco-benefit to our clients at no extra cost
- As a result of our wind power initiative, we have produced more than a quarter billion eco-friendly direct mail packages since 2006 for clients including the National Park Foundation
- We recently negotiated preferred pricing arrangements with paper producers that enable us to offer printed materials made from a minimum of 25% post-consumer waste at no extra cost over the virgin fiber alternative
- We have plans to build a sustainability consultancy
