Partner Profile
Boutwell, Owens and Co. is a designer and manufacturer of printed paperboard packaging. The company purchases wind power for both its facilities in Massachusetts. It has also completed a GHG audit, confirming its carbon credit purchase level. "We made this decision which is consistent with our past and long standing commitment to do what is right, attempting to be a good corporate citizen," says William P. Hodges, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "We have seen a massive outpouring of support and interest from our community and our customer base which was expected, but not at the level that we are presently enjoying. Following the purchase of the assets of Guynes Printing of El Paso Texas, and their integration into the Boutwell Owens Company as our Guynes Packaging and Printing Division, we increasd our renewable energy commitment to include 100% of Guynes' energy consumption as well, bringing our kWh purchases of RECs to 3,893,000 annually. In addition we increased our carbon offset credit purchases to 430.91 per year for two years, covering both facilities 100%."
