Through our ongoing research and efforts we are always continually striving to reduce our impact on the environment and ensure that our green message is a positive one. When you work with Hartgraph you can be confident in knowing that you are using one of the most sustainable and planet positive print and packaging companies in the industry.
World Land Trust
We are thrilled to be one of just a handful of certified Carbon Balanced Printers in the UK, supporting the fantastic work of the World Land Trust.
As a business we have measured and balanced the annual impacts of our fossil fuel usage, transportation and electricity consumption. These impacts are third-party verified, and balanced with the international conservation charity World Land Trust (WLT).
WLT offsets these emissions by protecting threatened habitats and wildlife that would otherwise have been lost, avoiding the release of stored carbon and enabling the regeneration of degraded habitats, which gradually re-absorb atmospheric CO2.
Forestry Stewardship Council® (FSC®)
We are an FSC-certified printer (FSC-C106360). When you see the FSC's “tick tree” logo it indicates that products are certified under the FSC certification system offering confidence that paper or board was sourced responsibly ensuring that our forests are alive for generations to come.
As a business we are proud that in addition to ISO 9001 we have also been accredited with ISO 14001, this accreditation sets out a set of mangement standards put forward by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO). The purpose is to clarify the best practices for us to continually monitor our performance and work towards reducing our environmental footprint.
Recycling is a part of our ethos, we have a full recycling program in operation with J & G Environmental, they handle all of our production waste through treatment, disposal and recycling, whilst Pulp Friction looks after our paper recycling.
We use vegetable oil-based inks and water based varnishes to reduce our chemical output, our lamination and mailing wraps are biodegradable wherever possible. Foil stamped papers are fully recyclable, re-pulpable and biodegradable.
We have signed up to a renewable energy source, meaning that any electricity that we pull from the grid is matched with energy created from a renewable energy source such as wind and photovoltaics. Certification can be provided for this on request.

How You Can Get Involved
We know that many of our customers strive to be environmentally conscious too. Here is how you can get involved:
FSC® – by speaking with us and selecting a certified paper or board, we can place the FSC logo on your print, offering your clients/customers assurance that you are purchasing responsibly.
World Land Trust – as a business we are now carbon neutral, to ensure that your printed piece is fully carbon balanced, you can choose to carbon balance the paper. This would enable you to place the World Land Trust logo on your print with the message that both the print and the paper are carbon neutral.
We would be happy to discuss both of these options with you in greater detail, so please do get in touch with our sales team on 01628 810523.
