We see the need to reduce our environmental impact, not only at home but at work too. its also an essential choice when choosing a print company. It not just printing on recycled paper.
For over 10 years Verve have been working hard in reducing our carbon footprint. Using FSC certified and recycled stock wherever possible and addressing our print process by reducing energy use and promoting the use of digital print process which eliminates the use of harmful chemicals.
Verve is committed to the Government’s 4 R’s policy for reducing waste: Reduce, Re-use, Repair and Recycle.
All of our recycled paper, board and packaging used conforms to our stringent environmental specifications.
We actively encourage and promote the use of Environmentally Accredited Papers, from sustainable forrest sources, 100% Recycled Paper or paper containing a mixture of both sustainable and recycled pulp.
Our Website products are printed on either Environmentally Accredited or Recycled Paper.
Reduce or Avoid the use of Chemicals
We promote full colour digital printing which uses no chemicals or solvents and only one or two sheets of paper in a job set-up. No press cleaning is required as in traditional litho printing.
Our equipment was chosen for it’s efficiency as well as it’s quality, faster setups and running speeds equals less electricity used.
We invest in the latest production equipment which is more efficient and generates less material waste.
Two and a half years ago we took the decision and introduced our first all electric vehicle.
Reduce and Recycle Waste
All paper off cuts are collected for recycling.
Heat generated from machinery is reused for heating offices. Our factory was purposely refitted and and additional insulation added in 2013 and we are now consuming only a fraction of the energy we used previously.
