Responsibly Using Paper & Ink
Product packaging - from boxes & manuals to in-store displays - requires not only paper but also inks, glosses and other materials that contribute to our eco-footprint. Here's how we're working to lessen our impact.
Papers from Well-Managed Forests
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) of Canada certifies papers that contain FSC-certified wood fibre from well-managed forests and/or papers with post-consumer recycled content.
Intuit Canada has proudly switched to using only FSC-certified papers for our QuickTax boxes. In time, we hope to print all our materials on FSC-certified paper.

Non-Metallic Inks & Water-Based Glosses
Metallic inks & UV coatings are used to give printed materials improved luster. However, these products are not environmentally friendly.
That's why we've switched. This year, the packaging for nearly all Intuit Canada products - including ProFile, QuickBooks and QuickTax - uses vegetable-based inks rather than metallic inks and water-based aqueous coatings rather than UV coatings.
