Hatteras recognizes the vital role we play as a responsible manufacturing company, while being a champion of sustainable print solutions for our clients
We’re committed to protecting our earth’s resources by utilizing a wide range of environmentally-friendly production processes and recycling programs throughout all aspects of our business, while embracing the Circular Design model by promoting sustainable print alternatives that are safer for our planet.
It’s one thing to “talk” about your sustainability initiatives, and another to demonstrate a measurable commitment to industry standards. Hatteras partners with a variety of regulatory and environmental organizations who are leading the effort to create a more sustainable global ecosystem while ensuring compliance to best practices.
The Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP) is the leading accrediting body in the United States and Canada that certifies printers as maintaining the highest environmental operating standards.
Through a comprehensive audit that identifies a printer’s commitment to eliminate waste, reduce energy consumption and transition to sustainable materials, SGP Certification demonstrates to our customers that we’re an active participant in ensuring a more sustainable supply chain.
The Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC) is the most trusted organization overseeing sustainable forest management around the world.
Hatteras maintains FSC Chain-of-Custody (COC) Certification, with annual audits to ensure that the timber used in production is sourced from responsibly managed forests and other controlled sources, and is traceable through the entire manufacturing process until it is ready for distribution to the end consumer.

You’ll see us using this logo throughout our facility and on materials that meet a specific set of criteria – and we encourage our clients to do the same! Using this logo on printed materials means they are:
