The biggest printer and outsourcer in the world is actually more green than most people would know at first glance. They will win more business because of that, among other things (like having mastered the outsourcing game ahead of their competitors). Disclosure: I work for RRD at a low level in the Bay Area.

As printers go, RRD is very green, but that doesn't help win any business. The conversation goes like this: can you print that on environmentally friendly paper? Why yes we can, it will cost..... WHOA! I don't want to pay any more. Most green certifications are nothing more than Trojan Horses. The only green people actually care about is what they can put into their pockets. Right now Donnelley is the largest book printer in North American, and that market is falling like a turn-of-the-century dot com. They are also big magazine printers....what has happened to your Newsweek lately? It is a sliver of what it was used to be. The company is run by an accountant (CEO was former CFO). The vision here amounts to cutting costs only. I say thumbs down on this one.
