Environmentally Friendly Print

PPG is one of the UK’s premier environmentally friendly printers, boasting sustainable forest management certification from the FSC®. Our working practices are under constant review and we are continually striving to reduce our impact on the environment, changing the way we think and changing the way we print.

So what does each certification actually mean to you or your client?

Being Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified means that we comply with the highest social and environmental standards on the market. Our Chain of Custody certification verifies that the paper we use comes from a well managed, certified forest where timber is logged legally and does not fund conflict.

With forests contributing to the livelihoods of 1.6 billion people worldwide, by choosing PPG Print, you are helping to:

- Retain the way of life and livelihoods of the many indigenous communities that live and work in the forests.

- Protect salaries of those working in the forests.

- Support programmes to allocate a portion of the revenue generated by the exploitation of the forest to the families and communities living in or near a certified forest.

- Provide health care centres, vaccination programmes and access to schools for the children in the local communities.

- 100% alcohol free Komori presses. Many printers use Isopropyl alcohol in their presses which is toxic, flammable, expensive and causes a strong smell in the finished product. It also totally negates the benefit of using recycled paper!

- Water and chemical free ‘direct to plate’ systems which provide a more efficient alternative to traditional thermal plates, eliminating hazardous chemicals for more consistent imaging.

- Recycled paper stock sourced from fully sustainable forests.

- We recycle printing plates, tins, rags, waste paper, shrink wrap and strapping.

- 100% use of vegetable based inks.
