At our printing house, we are committed to matters relating to sustainability and environmental impact. That is why, for many years now, we have been working continuously to reduce the impact of our activities on the condition of the planet. We focused on three main aspects:
Sustainable materials are at the heart of our environmentally conscious policy. We are particularly proud of the use of Graspaper
(paper produced from grass) and chemical-free offset plates.
Among the many certifications, the FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®), which certifies that the paper we use in production comes from responsibly managed forests, holds a special place. We also hold Heidelberg HEI ECO certification, proving that unavoidable CO2 emissions have been offset by investments in sustainability.
As a printing house, we have introduced a number of measures to reduce water waste and save electricity.
Some of our printing machines have paid off their carbon debt. The manufacturer makes sure that the machine compensates for its future carbon footprint the moment it leaves the factory!
We work on Kodak Sonora XP process-free offset plates, which not only do not require chemicals for development, but also allow us to use biodegradable soy-based inks.
Because we are a certified company, we can print on FSC-certified papers. This means that the paper we use is verified in terms of sustainability right from the stage of responsible forest cultivation.
Grass fibres are an alternative to wood fibres, and the grass itself is sourced from sustainable land and farms. Environmental issues aside, grass grows locally, which means further benefits in terms of logistics and production. The very process of producing this material is definitely better for the planet.
The modernisation of the water management system at our printing house has achieved savings of up to 50%. We also regularly train our employees in the conscious use of water.
Our customers can be assured that the wood used for our paper comes from sources with sustainable forest management systems in place. Certification guarantees monitoring of the entire supply chain – from the tree to the final product.
As a European leader in the printing of packaging and labels for the horticultural industry, we have been involved in the promotion of eco-friendly printing solutions for many years.
The Graspaper we use means 97% energy saving and 99% water saving. And these are just some of its benefits. Also, our offset plates do not require any chemicals.
Our plant increasingly consists of machines whose carbon debt was already paid off at the time of purchase. This is one of many examples of innovation for environmental protection.
All the waste generated by our printing house is carefully sorted and collected by entities responsible for its further recycling and safe disposal.
