Northeast Delta Dental Annual Report
Reducing Environmental Impact
Northeast Delta Dental actively seeks ways to reduce its environmental impact, often saving money in the process. Our sense of corporate responsibility includes a belief that reducing any negative impact that we could have on the environment helps everyone—our business, and everyone with whom we share our planet’s limited natural resources.
RAM Printing in Hampstead, New Hampshire is the company we trust to print our annual report. One of the proudest moments in RAM Printing’s 30-year history was receiving the Forest Stewardship Council Chain-of-Custody Certification from the SmartWood Program of the Rainforest AllianceTM in 2006—the first commercial printing company in New Hampshire to achieve certification.
The paper Northeast Delta Dental chooses for its annual report is manufactured by Monadnock Paper Mills in Bennington, which has operated since 1819. Monadnock Paper Mills produces premium, high performance papers using sustainable product design and manufacturing processes. By using an FSC certified printer and paper, and doing business locally, Northeast Delta Dental saved:
