All of the paper we use is from sustainable certified sources. It is our mission to continue to reduce our carbon footprint and to be a fully carbon balanced company by 2021.
- FSC Accrediting
As an FSC certified manufacturer Pressision completes an annual audit of process,documentation and employee training, all carried out by an independent third party company, SGS. This ensures we can guarantee the FSC “Chain of Custody”. Although 100% of the projects that Pressision produce use FSC certified papers, this alone doesn’t certify your project and complete “The Chain of Custody”. To do this your project must have the relevant FSC logo placed onto the artwork and this must be approved by SGS to abide by FSC brand guidelines. By placing Pressision’s unique FSC logo, supported with manufacture processes and a documented trail to prove “The Chain of Custody” means the exact hectare of farmed forest that was felled to create the wood pulp in your publication can be fully traced. Pressision can help certify your project with FSC’s Chain of Custody.
- Carbon Balancing
Pressision works with two companies offsetting carbon. Today we offset carbon on the paper production, project by project, but we have a mission to offset all of our carbon and take our company carbon balanced by 2021 (see our environmental mission statement).
Working with The Woodland Trust (WT) we help plant tree’s to combat climate change, create a greener future and create havens for British wildlife. The Woodland Trust have planted over 43 million tree’s since their conception in 1972.
They also protect woodlands, currently having saved over 1000. In addition they restore ancient woodlands, these rare sites have been continually wooded for 400 years, making them homes to special species that truly rely on them. All of the Woodland Trust projects are based here in the UK. Please enquire about our annual tree planting days, we love getting our clients involved offsetting Pressision’s carbon.
We also work with The World Land Trust offsetting the carbon produced in the paper manufacture. World Land Trust (WLT) is an international conservation charity that protects the world’s most biologically significant and threatened habitats acre by acre.
Through a network of partner organisations around the world, WLT funds the creation of reserves and provides permanent protection for habitats and wildlife. Partnerships are developed with established and highly respected local organisations who engage support and commitment among the local community.
- Foilco: Zero to Landfill
Foil is a dry, solvent free method of printing, once transferred to the substrate, foil is incredibly thin, less than 2.5um (micron) thick, this means that it completely dissipates within the re-pulping process, as long as the substrate / material that is being foiled on to is recyclable it can be put into standard recycling bins / normal waste streams. Pressision are a proud member of the Zero to Landfill scheme whereby all foil waste including the carrier material is gathered and sent to a biomass plant and is used to generate a sustainable energy fuel
- Waste paper recycling
100% of the waste paper produced from our manufacturing processes is recycled, re pulped and put back into the UK paper making industry as pre consumer waste.
Pressision’s lithographically printed inks are made using vegetable oil, are ISO 14001 Environmental and Cradle to Cradle certified.
