EMDRIA Announces Go Green Program

AUSTIN, Texas, December 4, 2008 – EMDR International Association (EMDRIA) announced its Go Green Program this week, which is designed to make EMDRIA a more environmentally responsible organization by January 2009. The program, which was put into motion in November, includes new green commitments made by the EMDRIA staff, as well as initiatives for EMDRIA members.

“The EMDRIA staff is very excited about the new Go Green Program. Everyday we are looking for new ways to eliminate waste, and we are working hard to develop new greener business practices, which we plan to begin implementing immediately, and continue throughout the coming years,” said Scott Blech, CAE, Executive Director of EMDRIA.

As part of the Go Green Program, EMDRIA will begin printing all of its publications, brochures and mass mailings on paper that is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, meaning that the product is from well-managed forests that minimize habitat destruction, pollution, and violence against local individuals and animals.

Regardless of the origin and content of the paper used by an organization, decreasing the quantity used is still the most crucial aspect of reducing an organization’s carbon footprint. EMDRIA is taking the first step in this area by decreasing the number of mailings they send each year through an increase in electroniccommunications.
