Norcom, Inc. measures and establishes strategies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, water consumption, solid waste and is engaged in a globally recognized program to ensure our products are solely manufactured from environmentally sustainable sources.

Norcom, Inc. is certified by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI), a non-profit organization responsible for maintaining, overseeing, and improving a sustainable forestry certification program that is internationally recognized and is the largest single forest standard in the world.

Norcom is audited annually by a third-party forest certification organization to ensure our products are procured from environmentally responsible sources accepted by SFI.

In 2011 SFI participants contributed over $83 million for research activities and since 2010 have committed $1.27 million for projects through its Conservation and Community Partnerships Programs.

Norcom is actively engaged in reducing its carbon footprint by reducing greenhouse gas emissions from all areas within the organization. We report to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) based in the U.K. -- an independent, not-for-profit organization working to reduce global greenhouse emissions and promote sustainable water use. CDP works with 3,000+ of the world's largest corporations to ensure that carbon emissions reduction strategies are made integral to their businesses.
