Our Environment

environmental printroom

At The Printroom we have a genuine concern for reducing our environmental impact. We are acutely aware of our environmental responsibilities, both to our clients and the planet, and are constantly looking to limit the impact of our operation. We reduce, reuse and recycle, and encourage our customers to choose the greener option for their print jobs.

Our printing uses vegetable-based inks and is 100% alcohol free. We only use FSC ® certified papers and boards, and promote sustainability throughout our processes.

We operate an integrated system of processes covering environmental management and quality control, promoting a healthy and safe environment, while producing high quality products. We take a leading role within our industry to help drive environmental improvement, and recognise that ISO 14001 alone is no longer enough to address environmental issues. For this reason we have worked to  implement EMAS (Eco Management Audit Scheme), and have become one of the very few UK printing companies certified to EMAS. (Please download our Environmental Statement from the downloads page)

We follow a strict code of certifications to help educate our staff, customers and the wider community:

  • ISO 14001 (2015)-International environmental management system
  • EMAS- Eco International environmental management system
  • FSC ® –Forest Stewardship Council ®
  • Member of Carbon Zero Federation-for carbon zero status
