Polaris Direct has taken the DMA’s Green 15 Pledge, committing to follow a set of operating principles for efficient and responsible marketing that affect environmental performance. It is also important to Polaris to work with partners who are Forest Stewardship Council and Rain Forest Alliance certified.
