The vast majority of the paper we use is certified to either FSC or PEFC. This means that the paper is guaranteed to have come from forests which are sustainably managed. As we hold the FSC Chain of Custody standard we are able to produce product that is certified to have come from an FSC managed forest. In addition we have also adopted a proactive approach to informing our clients of the benefits which come from using certified material.
In addition to using certified materials we also use solely vegetable based inks. These inks are completely non hazardous and therefore far kinder to the environment.
As a side effect of our production process we produce small quantities of hazardous waste. To ensure this waste is correctly disposed of we use J&G Environmental who collect the waste from our site, treat it and recycle what they can. For packaging our product we use paper, plastics and cardboard. Any wastage of these materials is segregated into designated bins and recycled.
This policy is reviewed twice a year at our management review meetings. This ensures it is kept accurate and in line with the companies targets and objectives. This policy is available to all interested parties on request and for download from our web site.
