EcoLogo is North America’s most widely recognized and respected certification of environmental leadership, setting standards and certifying products.
Colour Innovations prides itself on having a vigorous environmental policy and is EcoLogo CCD-041 TerraChoice-certified by the federal government. In fact, Colour Innovations was the first printer in Ontario to be CCD-041-certified in 1997. The EcoLogo program was developed to help move the entire marketplace toward sustainability, stewarded by TerraChoice environmental marketing. EcoLogo considers an organization’s overall environmental stance, as opposed to just one initiative, and that is a significant change in mindset. In our case, EcoLogo certification means that we have identified the process by which jobs move through our plant, have assessed the resulting environmental impact, and have taken steps to reduce our effluent by more than 90%.
Colour Innovations is an FSC (Forest Stewardship Council®) certified printer. This chain of custody program ensures that FSC certified paper is made from wood from responsibly managed and harvested forests.
The FSC is an international organization dedicated to better utilizing, managing, and promoting responsible use of our forests.

Colour Innovations is FSC certified by the Rainforest Alliance. The Rainforest Alliance works to conserve biodiversity and ensure sustainable livelihoods by transforming land-use practices, business practices, and consumer behaviour.
It also sets standards for sustainability that conserves wildlife and wild lands and promotes the well-being of workers and their communities. Farms and forestry enterprises that meet comprehensive criteria receive the Rainforest Alliance certification seal.
Bullfrog sources power exclusively from generators who meet or exceed the federal government’s Environmental Choice Program EcoLogo standard for renewable electricity. Its power comes from clean, emission-free sources like wind power and low-impact water power instead of carbon-intensive sources like coal.
