We have been committed to sustainable printing long before it became a talking point. To us sustainable printing is more than just being environmentally aware, it also makes economic sense and is a smarter way to do business.
We were one of the first in Australia, and indeed the first in Victoria to introduce water and chemical free plate making, a technology which offers immense water savings of over 150,000 litres a year. It is also far safer for our staff and the environment. In addition we only use 100% vegetable and soy based inks, again eliminating the need for harmful (and expensive) chemicals.
We are one of only a handful of printers in Australia to be fully certified by the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC), an international organisation that encourages paper mills to find solutions to problems created by bad forestry practices and rewards good forest management.
Further to that we are also Waste Wise certified, with 97% of our waste being recycled or reused, and are part of ECO-Buy, a government funded organisation that supports the purchasing of green products. And we buy 90% of our paper in bulk lots and warehouse it on site, massively reducing CO2 emissions from deliveries and resulting in both cheaper and more environmentally friendly print runs.
We are proud to say we were winners of the 2008 CitiPower City of Port Phillip Business Excellence Award for Environmental Sustainably and we will continue to embrace and strive to develop further environmentally sustainable print practices for the benefit of everyone's future.
