Environmental responsibility, sustainability and renewable resources are big issues which every organisation needs to deal with. There’s no opt-out clause. We’re committed to running a business that takes a best practice approach to being responsible.
Printing has some points of contact with the physical environment, especially in the sourcing of paper and board. The stocks we use are biodegradable, recyclable and made from a renewable resource.
The production of paper and board is certified at each step, environmental management systems conform to ISO 14001 standard and a chain of custody is established. This FSC® certification is audited on an annual basis.
In our press room we make extensive use of vegetable-oil based inks, water-based coatings and our offset presses run IPA (Isopropyl Alcohol) free, eliminating carcinogens from the printing process.
Our latest large format press, Komori G640+C (‘G’ for green) uses 30% less power than its predecessor. Komori won international awards for the efficiencies of this press, particularly for its low impact on the environment.
