Aurora Specialty Textiles Group Inc (ASTG) is honored to receive the prestigious 2012 SGIA Sustainability Recognition Award for the second consecutive year.

Specialty Graphics Imaging Association, or SGIA, created the Sustainability Recognition Awards to recognize member companies that develop a sustainable business ethic, requiring a strong commitment from not only company management, but also its workforce. Awards are presented annually to facilities that qualify based upon submission of required program information and the facility's sustainability policy.

Aurora Specialty Textiles Group, Inc. has a long-term sustainability vision, which includes investments in capital projects that will allow the company to modernize its 100-year old building in order to make operations more efficient. ASTG plans to reduce gas and electrical consumption in boilers and ranges, while also reducing steam trap and air line leaks.

The end result will be less energy required and lower emissions. According to Mike Richardson, Director of Sales/Marketing-Print Media, "We have not only recognized higher than expected operational savings by updating assets, but also improved our operational working conditions, such as air quality. It is a win, not only for Aurora, but also for our surrounding environment."

In addition to these measures, ASTG's environmental policy and its ISO 14001 environmental certificate have been added to the company website. Internally, ASTG has posted environmental banners throughout their facilities and conducted employee communication meetings for project updates.
