Pureprint Group, who are well known for award winning responsible printing, have worked hard to give the best advice to their customers on print related environmental impacts. Choosing the right paper is hugely important in making printing as sustainable as possible.
To graduate from the Global Forest and Trade Network in the UK, it is confirmed that a participant's trade in forest products is consistently more than 95% credibly certified (FSC) and or recycled material, with no material in the two lowest GFTN reporting categories referring to material whose origin and legality cannot be established.
WWF expects graduates from GFTN to inspire others transforming their consumption of forest goods to achieve the same, and we congratulate Pureprint Group on their long term commitment to informing customers and engaging in the issues of paper and print and the environment.
Julia Young, Manager of GFTN in the UK, said Pureprint Group is dedicated to understanding the impacts their business and services have on the environment, and to helping customers make the best choices for their printing. They are a respected voice in the industry on how to mainstream responsible paper and print. I am very pleased to be able to confirm they have graduated from GFTN this year, and look forward to our continuing partnership to engage and influence others in the sector".
Richard Owers, Director at Pureprint Group, said: "Pureprint Group is delighted to be the first printing company in the UK to become eligible for graduate status to the WWF'S GFTN-UK. We have been pleased to both follow and pass on WWF advice on responsible paper purchasing. By adopting these ideas and best environmental practice in our factory we have not only been able to make printed communications very sustainable but also now offer environmental printing as a mainstream business choice."
