City Clerk Casey Carl nominated Roger for leading the effort to make the Document Solutions Center the first city print center in the United States to win Forest Stewardship Council certification:

“Roger Williams led the Document Solutions Center, part of the Office of City Clerk, in attaining chain-of-custody certification through the Forest Stewardship Council as part of the InGreen group certification program. This certification demonstrates that the center uses materials that comply with the highest social and environmental standards on the market and provides public and consumer recognition of its responsible practices. This certification also demonstrates compliance with the City’s Environmentally Preferable Purchasing Policy adopted Oct. 10, 2008, which encourages all departments to purchase environmentally preferable products and services. Forest Stewardship Council certification will make it easier for departments to comply with that policy’s guidance for City departments to ‘give preference to wood products that are certified to be sustainably harvested by a comprehensive, performance-based certification system.’

“The Forest Stewardship Council represents the gold standard of forest management, and its certification program for printers is analogous to the LEED green building certification program or the Rainforest Alliance certification for coffee. Obtaining this certification is a visible representation of the City’s strong commitment to sustainability through its use of responsibly sourced paper products, and is a direct result of the work Roger has led the Document Solutions Center in to provide superior in-house printing services to all City departments.”
