Our Environmental Policy
We strive to conduct business in a way that is socially and environmentally responsible, using the latest technology, so as to minimise any adverse effects on the environment.
Throughout production we continually assess the impact of our activities and this results in procedures, control measures and business practices that help to protect the environment. We set standards across the business to monitor and ensure regulatory compliance.
FSC® Certified Paper
We are working towards exclusive use of FSC® certified paper stocks.
FSC® certified paper uses wood pulp which is sourced in an environmentally friendly, socially responsible and economically viable manner from a well-managed forest.
As well as helping to improve the environmental impact, these paper stocks provide a higher quality print. These paper stocks contain fewer imperfections so are brighter and smoother, providing a more vibrant colour reproduction.
We currently stock the following FSC® certified paper:
• 100gsm uncoated
• 120gsm uncoated
• 130gsm gloss & silk
• 170gsm gloss & silk
• 300gsm coated
• 400gsm gloss & silk
• 450gsm silk
Advanced Plate Technology
Plate technology, has been developed, that is specifically engineered for short run commodity printing. This system has a huge impact on waste, allowing a massive saving of 95% water consumption in comparison to conventional systems
To reduce our use of fossil fuels, we use vegetable-based inks in our standard production processes rather than traditional oil or petroleum based inks.
Our presses use fully automated wash systems for a more efficient make ready time, which reduces our paper and water consumption.
The boxes we use for dispatching our orders are made from recycled cardboard.
