1. BUSINESS CHALLENGE
In 2005, a major Canadian printing company came to ÉEM inc. with the challenge of reducing their environmental impact from the use of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). VOCs are typically photochemically reactive, meaning they react with sunlight, to create smog and pollution. This issue had been an ongoing concern for the company and became unacceptable under their new corporate strategy. The company challenged us to find a solution that could be integrated effectively into their numerous Canadian printing operations.
