Historically, the printing industry has failed the environment through careless use of volatile chemicals, excessive water and electricity consumption, destructive timber milling practices through irresponsible paper manufacturing, and excessive toxic and general waste generation.

This is how Expert Print is making a tangible difference:

  •   Use of vegetable-based printing inks
  •   Recommendation of recycled and FSC rated paper stocks
  •   Installation of chemical free CTP technology
  •   Water recirculation units
  •   Elimination of high volatility and toxic chemicals
  •   Use of only low volatility chemicals where necessary
  •   Alcohol free printing presses
  •   Recycling of outputs:
    • - Printing plates and any other metals
    • - Paper
    • - Board
    • - Plastics
    • - Ink, toner and paper cartridges
    • - Press blankets
    • - Bottles, cans and food containers
  •   Recycling Service for printers' rags
  •   Recycling Service for redundant computer parts and mobile phones

Through our environmental systems all our inputs and outputs are measured and benchmarked to ensure they meet strict Key Performance Indicators.  We are constantly striving to reduce waste and actively promote recyling in every department within the business.
