Shaughnessy, headquartered in St. Louis and serving customers throughout the Midwest, is an independent distributor of Fine Paper for the commercial print and publishing industries. "We felt that our commitment to be stewards of the environment was not only a responsible business choice, but also, the right thing to do," says Vice President of Operations Jerrry Callahan. In that light, Shaughnessy has committed to the purchase of renewable energy certificates (RECs) covering a significant portion of their energy use. Shaughnessy has also committed to offset 100 percent of the carbon emissions from their fleet of delivery trucks covering the entire Midwest. "During our decision making process to commit to Carbon Offsets and third-party certified RECs, Shaughnessy realized that it doesn't take vast resources to make a difference. Any company, regardless of size, can contribute and become a factor towards a better environment." The recognition that Shaughnessy has gained from their responsible commitment has generated similar actions by some of their customers, as the environment is a common concern.
