What is Planet Positive Printing™?
Planet Positive Printing™ is about having a Net Positive impact on the Environment, Society and Economy. A position where you don’t need to apologise to print, but actually contribute by printing, and which supports key principles such as the circular economy and clean energy.
It’s about creating a sustainable business that gives back more than it consumes.
Having already taken actions to reduce our impacts over 20 years of innovation, moving to waterless printing, Inventing LightTouch printing process, becoming ZERO waste, VOC free etc, gaining x3 Queens Awards for sustainable development and the European commission most sustainable SME in 2017, we wanted to go further.
We have now taken complete ownership of the environmental impact of our entire supply chain, our outputs and even colleagues travelling to and from our factory!
With the support of Empathy Sustainability we carried out an extensive assessment of our entire business impact – both within our factory, but also our supply chain, so that we are taking responsibility for our businesses impact in its entirety.
This was then independently audited by Anthesis Ltd and with confirmed numbers and methodology we worked with Climate Care on a program that creates positive social impact and carbon capture.
Giving back more than we consume = Net Positive.
So Planet Positive Printing means that we as a business are an enabler of positive impact – meaning our client's printed materials have a net positive impact on our environment and society.
Our long term sustainable future relies on living on one planet and within the earth’s carrying capacity. Doing less harm only takes us so far if the total net impacts remain negative.
The leadership position, and only strategy that doesn’t leave our children and future generations with the consequences of our negative impacts, is to be Net Positive
