Supporting sustainable purchasing
In addition to being made from the renewable resource that is trees, paper is one of the most recycled products in the world. The informed print buyer will know that it’s not the case that you need to go paperless to save trees!
Digital communications have an environmental impact too, the environmental trade-off depends on a range of factors including use frequency, source of energy and end of life product management, to name just a few!
Every element of doing business has some form of environmental impact and we’re here to help you minimise that. In progressing your print project we can;
Use responsibly sourced paper
- Look at the potential for using vegetable-based inks
- Incorporate an environmental imprint within your design, to encourage others to follow your example
- Print the right product to the right quantity, to minimise waste and maximise your return on investment
- Streamline your mailings by improving the accuracy of your data
- Enable you to offset the carbon footprint created by your projects
Responsible business practice is part of our heritage and culture;
- 95%+ FSC paper for our client and business purchases
- Proactive management and measurement of our carbon footprint
- 100% of our electricity is from renewable sources
