The core focus of ecoDesign ecoPrint has always been environmental considerations. Since 1992, we started with a simple focus on recycled or alternate fibre paper stocks. Today our design considers all aspects of the finished product, our presses are alcohol-free, we use vegetable oil based inks and every by-product that can be recycled is. We are independently audited each year to maintain our ISO 14001, ISO 9001 quality assurance certificates and Chain of Custody (QMI-COC-001113) certificate from the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). We are continually striving to add to our credentials as an ethical green provider of graphic design, offset and digital print.
ecoDesign ecoPrint is a medium sized company who strive for excellence in customer service and quality. We are proud of our achievements to date, and continue to pursue a reduction of our carbon footprint on the earth.
Until there is an international standard definition for the term “Carbon Neutral” we have been reluctant to make any claims in this area. However, below is a list of initiatives we have undertaken to minimize our carbon footprint and in many quarters this would be seen as being “Carbon Neutral”:
- We use 100% Greenpower through AGL
- All our vehicles emissions are offset through the GreenFleet program
- Our VOC’s are virtually zero given our use of vegetable oil based inks and running the presses alcohol free
Where possible, we have chosen alternatives to eliminate our carbon output and only as a last resort utilise offset programs – such as tree planting – to offset carbon emissions.
We welcome any enquiries or questions you may have and will do our utmost to provide you a service that joins us in the common pursuit of sustainability.
