Sustainability and the environment

Sustainability is the ability to operate in a
way that meets present needs while providing
for the needs of the future and future generations. Sustainable manufacturing has emerged to define a socially, environmentally, and resource-responsible approach to manufacturing. 


At Print Consultants, we believe sustainability requires continuous improvement across the entire manufacturing operation. We also recognise and applaud our clients’ who have made a commitment to corporate responsibility. Doing the right thing while also considering the social, environmental and economic impacts of doing business is an integral part of our culture.

We believe we have a responsibility to the environment and in making sure that our planet is safe for generations to come, and that’s why:

  • All paper stocks that we recommend are FSC certified, Elemental Chlorine Free (ECF) and ISO 14001 accredited. They are sourced from forests with PEFC – Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification
  • Our production facility utilises the latest technology from Konica Minolta and we adhere to their sustainable business practices
  • All wastage or minimal surplus are recycled wherever possible
  • We are actively implementing environmental accounting standards and green procurement policies

 

PRINT CONSULTANTS HITS THE MARK WITH GOLD FOR GREEN

As part of their on-going commitment to environmental management and investment, Print Consultants has recently achieved gold level status from Enviro-Mark. As New Zealand's original environmental certification programme, Environ-Mark provides resources and support to businesses to implement credible and effective environmental management systems.

Print Consultants participated in Enviro-Mark’s five-step programme which helps to identify and reduce environmental impacts, save money, and understand corporate legal obligations. The Enviro-Mark programme is owned and managed by Enviro-Mark Solutions, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Landcare Research, a Government-owned Crown Research Institute at the forefront of organisational sustainability. More New Zealand organisations have achieved their environmental management goals with Enviro-Mark than through any other programme.

Commenting on the recent achievement, Print Consultants’ Group Operations Manager Greg Ward said, “More and more companies that we work with are asking for certification demonstrating our commitment to green issues and sustainability. At Print Consultants, we believe sustainability requires continuous improvement across the entire manufacturing operation. We also recognise and applaud our clients’ who have made a commitment to corporate responsibility. Doing the right thing while also considering the social, environmental and economic impacts of doing business is an integral part of our culture.”
