    MONTREAL, Feb. 12 /CNW Telbec/ - CGI Group Inc. (TSX: GIB.A; NYSE:   GIB),
a leading provider of information technology and business process services,
today announced that it earned chain of custody certification from FSC (Forest
Stewardship Council) for its print center in Quebec City. This certification
allows CGI clients to demonstrate that they promote sustainable business
practices to their customers, and furthers CGI's own commitment of
contributing to an improved environment.
    With its Quebec City center printing more than 100 million sheets per
year, CGI considers the tracking of paper, the control of wood harvesting and
reforestation as crucial issues. The certification allows a forest product to
be tracked from a tree in the forest through all the steps of processing and
production until it reaches consumers. The designation also confirms that
certified materials are kept separate from non-certified materials.
    "CGI is committed to helping protect the environment by operating
responsibly. Obtaining this certification also allows us to enhance how we
support our clients, helping them demonstrate this environmental commitment to
their own customers who are increasingly requesting this type of
certification," stated France Côté, CGI's Vice-President, Document Management
Services. "At CGI, we believe strongly that the needs of our diverse partner
groups are interdependent and that everyone benefits from socially responsible
    From in-bound management that brings documents into the digital
environment to back-end processes that personalize documents for end users,
CGI combines technology capabilities, industry knowledge and document
management expertise to improve its clients' operating environments. The CGI
print center offers printing, conversion, insertion, multi-channel
distribution and production services.
