Park Communications can’t stop winning because it won’t stop rolling out environmental initiatives.


Environmental Company of the Year: Park Communications

Last year it was commended after triumphing in this category in 2012, and 2014 has seen the screws turned even tighter. Take spoilage, the business reduced this by 17%, while waste to landfill was slashed by 26%. The percentages pile up: Autowash? Down 15%. IPA usage? Down 8%. On it goes; staff embraced the adoption of an environmental management system. And by working with suppliers and developing reporting techniques, the team has increased accuracy of data for a more precise overview. And here comes the crunch. Park’s ‘cleaner, greener’ message has become a key part of building sales, enabling customers to demonstrate their own good green practices. All this has helped Park’s bottom line by reducing costs and improving returns.

Achievement and innovation piled up this year for Cestrian: rather than reducing water consumption, it eliminated it by switching off its photographic processors. The Manchester-based large-format digital printer has improved its own and its clients’ credentials by shifting 50% of production from PVC to woven PE. The remaining PVC is recycled into traffic cones, although by the end of 2014 the firm plans to have eliminated the material’s use entirely. Light sensors also went in and production was shifted to low-energy digital print processes.
