Mail continues to provide a stable and valuable communications channel within the rapidly changing digital ecosystem. The group believes that there is a need to address consumer demand for responsible mail production practices.
With tens of thousands of jobs involved and over 6.3 billion pieces of mail printed, produced and delivered in Canada each year, the SMG invites interested parties from the sector to join them in fostering a better understanding of the environmental impact of their industry with the goal of adopting best practices.
