Environmental policy

Last updated:
September, 2023

My mission is to support purpose-driven organizations and individuals whose goal is to have a positive impact on people and the planet. I do this through visual communication.

I am committed to reducing my environmental impact. I strive to improve my environmental performance over time and initiating projects and activities that further reduce my impact on the environment.

This commitment to the environment extends to my customers, collaborators, and the community in which I operate. I am committed to:

  • Comply with all applicable environmental regulations;
  • Prevent pollution whenever possible;
  • Train collaborators on the environmental impact of design and empower them to participate in further environmental impact reduction activities;
  • Continually improve over time by striving to measure my environmental impact and by setting goals to reduce these impacts each year.
