sustainability

Rest assured, we’ve got you covered

We are actively avoiding enviro-uncertainties for our clients in ways big and small. Bambra maintains a no-fuss, common sense approach to sustainability. Through eco-endeavours most clever, we aim to inspire other printers to make sustainable practice an industry-wide mission. But let’s work towards leading a change movement in all industries—paper, print and beyond—to minimise our impact and tidy up the world’s waste streams.

Certification

AS/ISO 14001 is a strictly high level of green practices in the workplace. But more than that, it demands continuous improvement. By achieving ISO 14001, Bambra has shown its ability to reduce its carbon footprint significantly, so by making us your printer of choice you’re assured of making a good choice for the planet.

Process

Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain of Custody ensures the paper that’s printed on is responsibly-sourced from sustainable growth forests, verified recycled content or controlled fibre and tracks it at every stage of its manufacture. Every year, Bambra is audited against FSC Chain of Custody standards to ensure we retain our supply chain assurance. Bambra's certificate code: SAI-COC-001092

Inks

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).

Recycling

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.

Resources

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.

Reduce

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.

Finish

Our Heidelberg six colour press has an aqueous coater. This technology enables paper to be recycled without harmful by-products.

Technology

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.
