S-One Aligns Strategies & Operations With UN Secretary-General’s Special Initiative

S-One Holdings Corporation, a global company headquartered in Sarasota with a focus on the digital imaging industry, proudly announces that we have joined the United Nations Global Compact initiative — a voluntary leadership platform for the development, implementation, and disclosure of responsible business practices. The UN Global Compact is a call to companies to align their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption, and to take action in support of UN goals and issues embodied in the Sustainable Development Goals. Launched in 2000, the UN Global Compact is the largest corporate sustainability initiative in the world.  

“S-One is committed to sustainability across all companies and business practices to reduce our environmental footprint,” said Co-Founder Art Lambert, S-One Holdings Corporation. “Being sustainable is part of who we are and how we help make our communities cleaner and healthier.”

With subsidiaries and brands dedicated to developing and selling products for the printing and graphics industry, sustainability is one of the ways S-One does business ethically and responsibly. S-One designs and produces environmentally conscious printing products manufactured, used, and recovered in a sustainable way that embraces a circular economy. Our products are designed to help our customers reduce their environmental impact while delivering exceptional results.                                                                                          

Innovative product designs with a focus on sustainability are demonstrated through our subsidiaries. Brand Management Group (BMG), an S-One subsidiary, developed HP Recycled Satin Canvas, a first-of-its-kind, printable canvas made with recycled water bottles and coating materials. BMG’s HP Large-format Media Portfolio includes 39 Recyclable Products, 41 FSC-Certified Products, 4 Products with Recycled Content, and 3 CE-UKCA- Certified wall coverings.

Another S-One subsidiary, LexJet’s ink recycling program has decreased waste and toxins in the environment. Below is a snapshot of the environmental impact since the inception of this initiative in February 2021 through January 2024.

Our ink cartridge recycling program has resulted in a total reduction of 21,665 pounds of CO2 which equals:
• The carbon sequestered by 163.8 tree seedlings grown for 10 years
• CO2 emissions from 22.86 barrels of oil consumed
• CO2 emissions from 1,105.85 gallons of gasoline consumed
• CO2 emissions from 409.49 propane cylinders used for home barbeques

Our recycling program’s environmental impact has resulted in reducing 8,257 pounds from landfills to include:
• 5,730 pounds of plastic
• 1,395 pounds of steel
• 453 pounds of aluminum
• 13 pounds of copper
• 622 pounds of other metals
• 44 pounds of other materials

S-One Labels & Packaging (S-OneLP) designs and develops sustainable packaging containing renewable materials that when they reach their end of life, can be composted and returned to the earth. A variety of S-OneLP ReEarth compostable flexible packaging films received both TUV OK compost HOME and TUV OK compost INDUSTRIAL certification. Another sustainable choice is S-OneLP’s ReTreve recyclable family of films. These flexible packaging films meet the Sustainable Packaging Coalition guidelines for store drop-off recycling.
