Together The Color Company and The Wren Press work hard to continue to reduce their Carbon Footprint year on year. The Target for 2017 is to reduce the Carbon Footprint by 3%.

- The Color Company and The Wren Press works closely with our suppliers through annual reviews ensuring that we minimise the environmental impact of the energy and materials that it uses. Where possible The Color Company will use FCS certified products: The FSC label enables us to be confident that the papers we supply are not contributing to the destruction of the world’s forests. The Wren Press is FCS certified and will only use FSC products: The FSC label enables us to be confident that the papers we supply are not contributing to the destruction of the world’s forests.
- The Color Company & The Wren Press work together to ensure that all waste is disposed of in an environmentally friendly way. For example all toner bottles and ink cartridges are collected by our suppliers for recycling, all paper, packaging, bottles cans etc are all recycled through our management companies or independent recycling companies. All waste paper is reused in store for test runs, setting up and testing machines. We have recently introduced charging for packaging encouraging our clients to reuse the packaging where possible.
- The Color Company & The Wren Press share a small van for local deliveries;. We are committed to reducing our “tonnes CO₂e” by 3% over the next 12 months. To ensure we hit our target we will ensure that each trip is a multi-drop incurring fewer miles than is necessary and all local small orders will be delivered by our staff to our clients where possible.
- The Color Company & The Wren Press has also committed to lowering its electricity usage by 3% over the next 12 months. We intend to hit this target by, replacing remaining light bulbs from T8’s to T4’s when needed, turning off all lights, computers and printers when not in use and lastly replacing the air con units with an environmental friendly system as recommend by our supplier. The air con will only be turned on when needed and it will remain no lower than 21C
The action plan will be communicated to our staff and suppliers through use of our website, team meetings and posting on all notice boards throughout our offices. The action plan will show our commitments and subsequent results. This environmental policy will be published and displayed in our reception areas and on our website. A full annual review will take place with our partners from Carbon Smart. Quarterly action plan reviews will take place with the Operations Manager and the Managers of the centres.
