Your Success is Our Success.

Sustainability Initiatives

Shepard recognizes its responsibility to conduct business in a way that protects and improves the state of the environment. We understand that the long-term well-being of society, our employees, the strength of the economy, and the continuing success of our own business depend on our commitment to a sustainable environment. We conduct business and implement operational decisions with environmental sustainability as a core corporate principle. We integrate environmentally friendly policies and practices into our organization by operating in a manner that promotes energy and material conservation, as well as waste reduction. We are also committed to assisting our clients in reducing and managing their own trade show-related environmental impact. Our sustainability program has three components:

  • A commitment to take action to reduce the sustainability impact of our own activities.
  • A commitment to provide our clients with the expertise, products, and solutions that help them with their own sustainable challenges.
  • A commitment to provide our employees with an environmentally conscious workplace.

Internal T&E expense reporting runs on a digital platform.

Graphic Production: Our VUTEk Wide Body Printers print directly to biodegradable substrates, eliminating the need to print on paper first and making all printed materials 100% recyclable. Environmentally friendly soy-based inks are used.
