Monday, October 22, 2018

Much changes in this ever-evolving category and Nationwide Print, in St Austell, Cornwall, is pioneering many of those changes. Nationwide has gone from powering its presses with renewable energy and using solar panels to save electricity and tonnes of CO2, to cladding its brick offices with carbon-neutral red cedar and eco-friendly superinsulation.

Staff zip around in an electric VW car, while low-energy LEDs shed light on machines that use vegetable-based inks and chemistry-free plates. Even hand dryers are low emission, noticed judges who agreed, “some great initiatives are delivering tangible benefits to the business” in the shape of top- and bottom-line improvements.
