Environment

 
Sustaining our environment is important. Here at eColourPrint we take responsibility for our impact on the environment. Over many years we have introduced many environmentally friendly products and processes to reduce our carbon footprint. We now have chemical free systems that totally have no impact and many other processes which are carbon neutral. However we constantly research the quality benefits against the environmental benefits to always maintain our quality products.

In each of our working departments we have
introduced many environmentally friendly products and processes.

Pre Press

Plates:
We use third generation FUJI Pro-T3 printing plates which do not use any chemicals and 20% less laser power to image the plate. Once used on press the aluminium in our printing plates is recycled.

Computers:
All our MACs and PCs are chosen not only for speed but their recyclability.

Waste:
Office waste is sorted into individual recycling bins.

Press Room

Presses:
Our modern presses are more efficient and computer controlled, this results in a 45% saving on make ready and waste.

Inks
:

All our printing inks are vegetable based, using no mineral oils and the containers are recycled.
Paper:
We use FSC certified paper whenever possible, which ensures that our paper is responsibly sourced.
Fonts:
Our water based font solution systems have been upgraded to recycle the solution and produce no waste.
Air Conditioning:
We have installed the next generation Evaporative Cooling air conditioning in our factory. This system uses upto 80% less power to reach 24 degrees, which is the ideal temperature for printing presses and will help cut down on ink, paper and font solution wastage.

Digital Presses:
All consumable cartridges are sent to be recycled and the toner used is vegetable based.

Finishing

Paper off-cuts:
These are put in special bins and collected by waste recycling companies to be made back in to paper.
Glues:
All are now vegetable based.
Forklifts:
These are all now electric.

Solar Power:
We have installated 64 solar panels, 16Kwh, which will produce upto 60% of our power requirements. We intend to install another 40 panels soon which will give us 100% of our power useage - when the sun shines.


We still have other processes to make green and we will continue to look at these constantly.

Text from the FSC website
"FSC is an independent, non-governmental, organisation established to promote the responsible management of the world's forests.

Established in 1993 as a response to concerns over global deforestation, FSC is widely regarded as one of the most important initiatives of the last decade to promote responsible forest management worldwide.
FSC is a certification system that provides internationally recognized standard-setting, trademark assurance and accreditation services to companies, organizations, and communities interested in responsible forestry.
The FSC label provides a credible link between responsible production and consumption of forest products, enabling consumers and businesses to make purchasing decisions that benefit people and the environment as well as providing ongoing business value.
More than 117 million ha forest worldwide are certified to FSC standards, distributed in over 82 countries (October 2009)." www.fsc.org

As a certified company this enables us to offer you products which come from responsible sources. FSC certified paper does not cost any more than standard paper, many governments promote the use of FSC certified products. It is common practice now for government bodies, local councils, large and small companies to demand their suppliers are environmentally aware, using FSC certified products helps make our company achieve this.
We can add the FSC logo to your printing order if the paper we use is FSC certified. Adding this logo to your printing makes a clear statement of your company's environmental credentials.
