Environment

 

EnvironmentRosenstiel's takes its environmental responsibilities with the greatest seriousness.

Every stage of our production process and every area of our business are reviewed regularly to reduce our carbon footprint.

We take a great care as well about the companies we are working with, and the efforts they are putting into the preservation of the environment.

All our papers are sourced only from companies committed to utilising raw materials from well-managed renewable sources and our principal paper supplier has achieved the ISO14001 Environmental Management Standard.

The British Printing Industries Federation state that European forests have actually grown by over 30% since 1950. Forests used in the paper making industry are well managed and sustainable with certification schemes such as the Forest Stewardship Council and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification ensuring that paper comes from sustainable forest sources.

Our printing operations are committed to "environmental printing" whereby they strive to reduce their carbon footprint across the entire company. This is done by a variety of ways including the use of vegetable based inks, recycling cleaning solvents and waste and offsetting any remaining carbon emissions. 

Paper is also one of the world's most recycled materials, far more than plastics or glass, and is one of the few materials that is able to be completely recycled. The European recycling rate for paper continues to lead the world and the last figures in 2013 show that this reached 72%. A report by the Swedish Royal Institute for Technology even stated that reading a physical newspaper can consume 20% less carbon than viewing the news on line.

Our principal suppliers for printing operates under a forceful written environmental management policy designed specifically to minimise waste generation, pollution and the use of environmentally unfriendly products.
