Combined Locks, Wis. - Appleton Coated has transitioned its renewable electricity purchasing to renewable energy credits (RECS) from Green-e® certified energy sources. Now, Green Power is a standard offer in five grades of the Utopia® brand of coated printing papers: Utopia Premium, Utopia One (sheets and web), U1X:Green (sheets and web), Utopia Two (sheets) and U2:XG (sheets and web). Effective Oct. 3, 2011, these five grades feature Green-e certified Green Power.
"One hundred percent of the electricity used to manufacture these products is matched with RECS from Green-e certified energy sources - primarily wind. Purchasing Utopia papers with Green Power increases support for building clean, efficient, wind-powered facilities and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. Demonstrating this forward-thinking commitment to the environment by choosing Green Power Utopia requires no additional effort or cost," says Ferkó Goldinger, advertising and promotion manager.
Customers also may specify Green Power for Appleton Coated's papers that do not include this as standard. Those choosing this option will be charged a small additional cost and will be provided with a certificate of purchase plus the Green Power logo, if requested.
