We take the following actions to make sure we’re environmentally friendly:

  • Using vegetable-based inks instead of petroleum-based inks
  • Reducing chemical use including isopropyl alcohol in our offset presses
  • Switching to Computer to Plate technology to eliminate Ultra Developer and Finisher chemicals
  • Encouraging customers to choose recycled paper
  • Reducing our waste across the business
  • All digital cartridges & consumables are recycled by Fuji Xerox
  • Paper Recycling
  • Using Eco-Solvent Inks instead of True-Solvent Inks for our large-format printers

On top of those actions we take, we only source printing papers that have the following accreditations:

    • ECF Chlorine Free
      ECF indicates a paper that is made without the use of Elemental Chlorine.
      ECF pulp is produced with chlorine compounds, a bleaching alternative that serves to reduce harmful by-products.
    • FSC – Forest Stewardship Council
      Pulp sourced from forests that have been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.
      FSC works to promote responsible forestry, conserve biological diversity and protect old growth forests.
      FSC also includes a ‘Chain Of Custody’ system that tracks paper from the forest, all the way to finished material offering clients complete paper traceability.
    • ISO 14001
      Paper is manufactured by a mill that is accredited with ISO 14001 EMS, the international standard for organising and achieving continual improvement in environmental management systems.
      This standard reviews the total manufacturing process and seeks continual improvement in aspects such as energy efficiency, waste reduction and pollution control.
    • PEFC – Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification
      PEFC is a framework for auditing forestry operations and promoting sustainable forest management by actively reducing the effects on the environment.
  • Carbon Neutral
    A product and/or operation that have had their carbon dioxide and greenhouse gas emissions;
    1) Calculated
    2) Reduced where possible and
    3) ‘Offset’ through credits that fund renewable, emission free energy products. The Kyoto Protocol mandates that these offsets must be “real, verifiable and additional to what would have otherwise occurred”.
Knowing that we take the necessary steps in being an environmentally-friendly company, we can ensure that when you print with us you’re not harming our environment.
