Responsible Paper Sourcing
Prontaprint produce printed documents on an exceptional range of papers and boards, all of which are from well-managed, accredited and sustainable sources that do not impact on the biodiversity of the area.
We only purchase paper from pre-selected suppliers with high environmental standards;
- We use FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) accredited paper.
When products carry the FSC label it acts as an assurance to consumers that the resources have come from forests that are managed to meet the social, economic and ecological needs of present and future generations. This assurance is derived from the wood fibre being 100% traceable back to a forest managed to maintain its biodiversity, productivity, and ecological processes.
- We use PEFC (The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) paper. PEFC is a global umbrella organisation; it is an independent, non-profit, non-governmental organisation, founded in 1999. PEFC promote sustainable forest management, through an independent third party certification scheme. The PEFC body provide an assurance mechanism to buyers of timber and paper products that the material they use/buy originates from a sustainable forest.
- We strive to use paper with a post-consumer waste content.
Using post-consumer recycled paper helps eliminate the need for harvesting more virgin materials, and also creates a demand for the paper we recycle, thereby closing the recycling loop.
