Making a Difference
Jostens is committed to educating employees about the impact of their daily activities on the environment as well as sponsoring opportunities for employees to take active steps in making a meaningful positive difference.
A Jostens team that is developing and refining a framework to reinforce our position as an environmentally conscientious industry leader. The team deploys a balanced strategy that focuses on earth-friendly designs for products, employee awareness and engagement and energy-conserving operational efforts.
Employee Environmental Sustainability Pledge
In addition to Jostens efforts, many of our employees have pledged to do their part to support environmental sustainability and make a difference for Jostens, our customers and our environment.
Jostens celebrates Earth Day every year, with participation steadily growing with the support and involvement of the Green GRADS team and Jostens Environmental Champions. 2011 marked the first year where the majority of our facilities celebrated this worldwide event.
Jostens is committed to providing a safe and healthy working environment for our employees and to avoiding adverse impact and injury to our employees, the environment and the communities in which we do business. We provide training to ensure employees understand and comply with all applicable environmental, health and safety laws, regulations and company standards.
Beyond this basic compliance, Jostens has systems in place to continually evaluate work conditions to identify and minimize hazards inherent to the manufacturing environment. Employees are an active part of safety processes through employee safety committees, training programs, audit and awareness tools, and other key indicators of the safety process. This preventative-minded approach has resulted in injury rates far lower than the industry average – with a focus on continually improving as we move forward.
