This sentence is from a reminder for reminding staff not to make unnecessary hard copies of documents:-


Only management reports should be printed to align / in alignment with the green policy.

I saw sentences use "to align" something "with" something but I'm not sure whether I can say "to do something align with the green policy". Is "in alignment with" a better alternative?

    I think "align" might be better (for me) as "in line":

    Only management reports should be printed, in line with our green policy.
    In line with our green policy, only management reports should be printed.
    As part of our green policy, only management reports should be printed.
