Sustainable Printing: Paving the Way for a Greener Tomorrow

Sustainability in the Printing Industry Is Our Commitment!

It’s always important to reflect on our industry’s environmental impact and explore ways to mitigate it, and Earth Day is a great time to explore this critical issue.

In today’s digital age, where everything seems to be going paperless, the printing world often faces scrutiny around deforestation and pollution. However, the reality is that printing, when done responsibly, can be a catalyst for sustainability.

At ImageOn Print, we understand our role when it comes to environmental stewardship. This is why we have made significant strides in implementing sustainable practices throughout our operations.

Here are 5 essential ways that our industry, and our practices, support a greener tomorrow:

  1. Eco-Friendly Materials: One of the most significant steps we’ve taken is to prioritize the use of eco-friendly materials in our printing processes. From recycled paper to biodegradable inks, we ensure that every aspect of our production is as environmentally friendly as possible.
  2. Energy-Efficient Technologies: Our commitment to sustainability extends beyond just materials. We’ve invested in printing equipment that is energy-efficient and minimizes waste. By optimizing our processes and reducing energy consumption, we’re able to lower our environmental impact while still delivering high-quality printed products to our clients.
  3. Waste Reduction Strategies: Waste is a significant issue in the printing industry, but we’ve implemented some strategies to minimize it. From efficient print planning to responsible disposal of leftover materials, we strive to minimize waste at every stage of the process.
  4. Education and Awareness: Education is key to driving meaningful change. We remind our clients that the Canadian pulp and paper industry contributes positively to the planet through its commitment to sustainable forestry practices, including selective logging and reforestation efforts. This helps to mitigate climate change by absorbing and storing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. It also creates a lot of jobs and boosts the economy! Finally,  using renewable wood fibre as opposed to fossil fuels (or other man-made products) promotes sustainability.
  5. IO Print is certified through the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). The FSC is an internationally recognized, non-profit organization that helps protect forests in a way that helps forestry workers, local and Indigenous communities, and natural biodiversity. This certification assures our clients of our commitment to ethical, sustainable practices.

We have certainly made progress towards a more sustainable future, and we know we need to commit to further action. By choosing a printing partner that shares your values and prioritizes sustainability, you can make a positive impact on the planet while still meeting your business needs.
