Precision Color Graphics in Franklin Achieves Certification
into Wisconsin DNR's Green Tier Program
Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch (left) and DNR Secretary Cathy Stepp (center) and other state and local dignitaries gathered at Precision Color Graphics in Franklin on Monday, June 10th, to recognize the company's Green Tier certification for environmental performance.
The certification is administered by the Wisconsin DNR and rewards earth-friendly practices of companies that voluntarily exceed regulations resulting in the continuous improvement in the State's environment, economy, and quality of life. Green Tier enables permit exemptions and easier approval for the testing and installation of new technologies, especially for those that conserve energy or reduce emissions. Precision Color Graphics earned the Green Tier certification by lowering energy consumption by switching to more efficient lights and timers; reducing the amount of garbage going to the landfill by 50% due to recycling efforts; adjusting scheduling to enhance efficiency of machine operations; revising delivery schedules to economize fuel use; reusing packaging materials that come in with supplies; recycling scrap magnesium; and their largest environmental effort of developing and patenting its Ecoterah brand compostable packaging that has layers of paper, corn-based film, and adhesives that are biodegradable.
Precision Color Graphics is a pre-press, printing and packaging company located at 9640 S. Oakwood Park Drive in the Franklin Business Park.
