Working with Quad

Quad is recognized for having the industry’s best approaches to addressing environmental matters, including strategies and solutions to maximize output and quality while minimizing our consumption of resources, waste generation and a robust MWBE Program.

Consistent with this role, we expect our partners – contractors, subcontractors and suppliers – to help protect the environment in the countries and communities where they operate. For this reason, Quad insists upon strict compliance with safety standards and environmental regulation. All contractors/vendors must be in compliance with all requirements set forth in our vendor guidelines and all applicable laws and regulations. In addition, vendors should aim for progressive improvement in their environmental performance, not only in their own operations, but also in their operations with partners, suppliers and subcontractors. This includes adoption of cleaner production and pollution prevention measures. Failure to comply with all of these requirements will result in work suspension.

A robust MWBE program not only makes Quad more efficient for shareholders by increasing competition in procurement, but also helps to foster an inclusive, competitive economy of shared prosperity throughout the supplier community. Minority and women-owned business enterprises are crucial job engines in communities of minority, and are also an increasingly important component of the country’s overall economic future.
