COMBINING QUALITY OF WORK & LIFE

Environmental sustainability and conservation

Solo Printing is a socially responsible “green” printer. The company and its employees are committed to the promotion of sustainable forestry practices. It understands that the health, biodiversity and regeneration of our planet’s forests depend on the ethical harvesting of precious natural resources. Solo Printing recognizes that no one wants to live in a world degraded by pollution, chaotic noise, dead oceans, and suffocating heat. The print industry can have multiple impacts on the environment: it consumes forestry products by printing on paper. Its printing emits dust, noise, heat, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from inks, solvents and other chemicals. Solo Printing reduces or eliminates these negative impacts by investing in and using the best available technologies. Solo Printing:

Komori Presses

LED UV Curing System – A Sustainable Printing Solution

The new Komori presses— a ten-color Lithrone perfector (1040P) and a six-color Lithrone G40 (GL640)— are equipped with LED UV and IR curing technology. We’ve chosen these Komori presses for their ability to deliver advanced automation that results in greater efficiency, color accuracy, and quicker makeready to reduce waste. With the addition of these two presses, we expect to meet even more demands and be twice as efficient for our clients.

IR Curing Technology- A Greener Printing Solution

Benefits of Green Printing:

Apart from being efficient, these new additions also boast a greener way of printing as a result of Komori’s many environmental initiatives that fall in line with our values of being a reduced waste and greener commercial printing company.

Triple Environmental Certification

at solo printing
Solo Printing supports the promotion of sustainable forestry practices and has earned triple environmental certification to the FSC, SFI, and PEFC Certification Standards. The rigorous industry certifications we’ve been awarded are a testament to our continuing dedication to socially responsible printing practices.

FOREST STEWARDSHIP COUNCIL CERTIFIED - FSC®

Protecting our environment has been a core value of Solo Printing since we opened our doors over 30 years ago. Being FSC® certified is just one of the many steps we take in order to preserve our surroundings. The Forest Stewardship Council® sets standards for responsible forest management. A voluntary program, FSC® uses the power of the marketplace to protect forests for future generations. So FSC® harnesses market demand to ensure forests are responsibly managed. Today, more than 380 million acres of forest are certified under FSC’s® system, including more than 150 million acres in the US and Canada. Solo Printing is very proud to be certified by the FSC®.

The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification® (PEFC)

At Solo Printing, we believe in doing good while doing well. This is why we have made it a point to be advocates of protecting our forests. Solo Printing is certified by The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification® (PEFC), an international non-profit, non-governmental organization dedicated to promoting Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) through independent third-party certification. PEFC® works throughout the entire forest supply chain to promote good practice in the forest and to ensure that timber and non-timber forest products are produced with respect for the highest ecological, social and ethical standards. Thanks to its eco-label, customers and consumers are able to identify products from sustainably managed forests.

Sustainable Forestry Initiative® Chain of Custody Standard

Here at Solo Printing, we know that it is not enough to just say that we care about our environment but we must also show that we do. This is why we have chosen to be certified to the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® Chain of Custody Standard. The SFI® certification standard is based on principles that promote sustainable forest management, including measures to protect water quality, biodiversity, wildlife habitat, species at risk, and Forests with Exceptional Conservation Value. SFI® works with conservation groups, local communities, resource professionals, landowners, and countless other organizations and individuals who share our passion for responsible forest management. It is up to us to become the leaders and the Standard in environmental protection and we at Solo Printing are very proud to be a part of the SFI® Program.
