    Lexmark Wins EPA’s WasteWise Award for ‘Green Purchasing’ Achievements

    LEXINGTON, Ky., nov 05– The U.S. Environmental
    Protection Agency, through its WasteWise program, has awarded LexmarkInternational, Inc. a Gold Achievement Award for its significant accomplishments in using recycled materials. Lexmark was also recognized withan Honorable Mention in the Large Business category.

    WasteWise is a voluntary program through which organizations partner withthe EPA to eliminate costly municipal solid waste and industrial wastes,increase reuse and recycling of materials and encourage the buying and manufacturing of products with recycled content.
     ”We are proud to be an EPA partner and to be recognized with this award,”said Paul J. Curlander, Lexmark chairman and chief executive officer. “Our commitment to the environment extends throughout our organization to the waywe design our products and services, the way we manage resources and the waywe live and work.”
    As one of the world’s largest remanufacturers and recyclers of printer
    cartridges, Lexmark keeps millions of pounds out of the solid waste stream.
    Lexmark also contributes to the general market for recycled goods by
    purchasing recycled-content materials for use in new construction and
    renovation projects, including walls, flooring, ceiling tiles and carpet. In
    addition, Lexmark encourages wise paper use such as duplexing, recycling and use of recycled-content paper products.
    Lexmark’s environmental commitment goes well beyond the EPA’s WasteWise initiative to include industry-leading environmental practices in all aspects
    of its business. As an environmentally responsible neighbor and employer,
    Lexmark established the Lexmark Environmental Program to guide implementation
    of environmental initiatives around the globe. Some of Lexmark’s recent
    efforts include achieving ISO 14001 environmental management systems
    certification in seven of its facilities, making it easy for customers to
    reuse and recycle products at the end of their useful life, and conducting
    environmental education and awareness programs for its employees.
