Lowe-Martin named Most Environmentally Progressive Printer in Canada



    OTTAWA, Feb. 28 /CNW Telbec/ - The Lowe-Martin Group was presented with
the GOLD AWARD for Most Environmentally Progressive Printer in Canada at the
3rd Annual Environmental Printing Awards, held on February 27, 2008 at the
Palais Royal in Toronto. The prestigious award was presented by PrintAction
magazine with former UN Special Envoy for HIV/AIDS in Africa, Stephen Lewis,
as keynote speaker. Lowe-Martin was chosen based on their holistic strategy to
lessen the environmental impact of their products and processes.
    Environmental sustainability has been a cornerstone of Lowe-Martin's
corporate philosophy since 1999. Based on a balance between ecology and
economy, Lowe-Martin's Environmental Business Strategy focuses on eliminating
the gaps between ecological values and environmental performance, while
considering the financial growth of the business. Along with their Eco Logo
and FSC certifications, the Lowe-Martin Group has also built numerous
eco-friendly features into their new facility on Hunt Club Road in Ottawa.
    Lowe-Martin has been recognized as an industry leader by encouraging
investment in greener processes, by sharing ideas and best practices, and by
demonstrating that environmental sustainability provides a competitive
advantage. Celebrating their centennial in 2008, the company continues to
advance a clear strategy to reduce its ecological footprint by implementing
meaningful solutions that do much more than pay lip service to the cause of
environmentalism.
    "We have committed to stringently measuring our carbon footprint and
setting aggressive targets to reduce it over the next 10 years. We have
prospered for 100 years now, and understand that in order to thrive for
another century, we must protect our resources and our planet, and give back
to the community that has assisted in our growth. We are deeply honoured to be
recognized for our efforts," says Lowe-Martin's President and CEO Ward
Griffin.
    Headquartered in Ottawa, the Lowe-Martin Group provides progressive print
