Sustainable Printing: We’ve got you covered!
Bambra maintains a no-fuss, common sense approach to sustainability. We acknowledge the potential impacts our operations have on the environment and are committed to actively managing and minimising them through clever eco-endeavours. We aim to make sustainable printing available to everyone and actively work with you to make better choices that do not cost the earth. Ask us about sustainably sourced, recycled and carbon-neutral options.
We are proudly Forest Stewardship Council® certified (FSC® license code FSC-C169001). The FSC is a global not-for-profit organisation that sets the standards for responsibly managed forests, both environmentally and socially. We are authorised to apply the FSC on-product logo, which provides your customers with an assurance of responsible sourcing.
The FSC Chain of Custody program follows the wood from the forest through to the final printed product. This means that we can guarantee that any FSC Certified materials we use are responsibly-sourced from sustainable growth forests, verified recycled content or controlled fibre.
We use K+E/BASF Bio inks, which were developed to support the environment and improve the ink characteristics. BIO inks are low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
Our recycling program is meaningful. We recycle our waste paper, plates, pallets, water, printers wipes, wrapping and ink canisters. We also re-use any rags in our cleaning process.
We focus on reducing resource consumption. Initiatives include installing a rainwater tank, which collects our roof run off and is used to water the surrounding gardens.
Computer-to-plate technology (CTP) eliminates the use of film. This technology means we use less chemicals and water. Electronic proofing uses less material, provides faster turnarounds, eliminates the need for couriers and enables changes to be made faster.
Our Heidelberg press has an aqueous coater. This technology enables paper to be recycled without harmful by-products.
Our investment in new technology has meant we now use fewer chemicals, and the chemicals we do use in the dampening and cleanup process are low in VOCs.
