EU’s new data regs will have to be matched

Come what may with the Brexit negotiations, the UK government is set to implement the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) less than a year from now, on 25 May 2018. GDPR applies to all organisations handling the data of EU citizens, regulating how this data is collected, used and shared.

The positive effects of being neutral

Opting to go for carbon neutrality as a corporate goal is not to be taken lightly, says BrunelPrint commercial print director John Tugman. There is nothing neutral about such a move, demanding a rigorous review of your print business to assess whether it makes sense and what form it takes.

Experts foresee a world of tougher green regulations

Printers are used to having to play by the rules; manufacturer guidelines, colour management requirements, health & safety directives, tax regulations, data security rules – all these things and a dozen more besides are just part of the everyday administration required to run a printing business in today’s market.

Process upgrades to green up your print

As the old saying goes, small changes can make a big difference. One area this is particularly true for printers is the pressroom. Of course investing in a brand new super-duper eco-friendly press is the route many would choose, if money were no object, when improving their environmental performance.

Sustainability superheroes

Some choose themselves. Some are chosen by others. But it’s not how a business goes about appointing its own green champion that matters. What matters is that every business has an individual in place whose role it is to continually drive good environmental practices and make sure that the company is heading in the right direction to hit its green aims and objectives.

Pick the best eco-tricks from other industries

Print, by its nature, has to be outward looking. Its tentacles touch so many different client sectors and its business is so reliant upon knowing those clients intimately, that there can't be many sectors with a better bird's eye view of UK industry as a whole.

Closing the loop

Printers are going to need to cut their carbon output as clients' demands for greener print increase, says Noli Dinkovski

New EU regs look set to stifle mercurial talents

There are on the horizon tougher EU regulations regarding the use of hazardous substances that are targeted at some of the more troublesome elements of the periodic table, among them lead (Pb), cadmium (Cd) and mercury (Hg).

Make sure you keep hold of your ISO 14001

Just when you thought developing, implementing and executing a watertight environmental management system that conforms to all ISO 14001 standards and works for your business was one of the biggest challenges your company has ever faced... Along comes the audit.

ESOS: benefit or burden?

When the government first floated the idea of the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) back in 2012, it did so with the strap line: ‘Helping UK enterprises improve profitability through better information on how to save energy’.

Why Lord Sugar needs to sweeten his behaviour

Someone is not performing to an acceptable standard. They are for the chop and it’s down to you to administer the coup de grâce. Is this your Lord Sugar moment? Do you point the finger of doom with a theatrical flourish and, without compunction, utter the famous words, “you’re fired”?

Power to the people: why DIY may be the way to go

Back in 2010, Ron Davidson, managing director and founder of PM Solutions, wanted to install a wind turbine. An admirable desire to reduce his company’s environmental impact coincided with a generous government incentive to switch to renewable energy sources, so it seemed an ideal step to take.

Make time for more flexible personnel

Flexibility is great, right? Fantastic if you’re trying out yoga. But only up to a point. It would be a bad thing if you were so bendy you tied yourself up in knots. While conversely, complete inflexibility, is unlikely to get you very far. Unless of course the A&E department is a painfully long journey away from where you put your back out while Bikram bending.
