In creating Duggal’s sustainability vision, we drew inspiration from resources such as the Natural Step, Cradle to Cradle and Life Cycle Analysis that are sustainability frameworks to aid in environmentally friendly product development and printing processes, as well as responsible end of life management. Products like Eco Weaves, Eco Ultra Poplin, and Eco-Mural have allowed us to offer immediate alternatives to their toxic substitutes used as a standard by the rest of the industry. Our entire Eco-Imaging product line is designed as a closed loop system, so when the products manufactured reach their end of life, they are transported to our partner recycling facility and brought back into the production chain. Currently we are recycling between 80 - 90% of all waste in each of our five main production facilities. In our corporate location on 29 w. 23rd Street, we worked with ITAC (Industrial + Technology Assistance Corporation) to reduce our lighting energy usage by over 60%. ITAC replaced all of our 275 bulbs with energy efficient bulbs to save energy and reduce cost. Over the next year, we will be updating our heating and cooling system to further reduce our energy usage. Duggal is proud to be FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council) and RainForest Alliance Certified at our 23rd Street location, and SGP (Sustainable Green Printer) certified in our Brooklyn Navy Yard Building 500.
PhILOSOPhY SUSTAINability At Duggal, sustainability means a philosophical commitment to innovate, detoxify and recycle across all aspects of our supply-chain and production processes. We realize that there is no such thing as a zero-carbon production process, but by eliminating environmentally hazardous materials throughout our product line and working with our customers, we can truly make a difference. We are raising the bar for the entire graphics industry to adopt environmentally responsible practices and reduce their collective ecological footprint.
