Our Environmental Commitment

We installed solar panels, which now supply some and all the LED lights at the facility in Walworth road with 10% renewable energy. This investment decreases our carbon footprint annually, as well as removing energy load from the electricity grid.

At Exact Print, we're committed to substantially reducing our environmental impact and are ahead of the curve on this within our industry. Listed below are some of the steps we've taken so far to reduce our environmental impact

New Sustainable Products

We have launched a number of new sustainable products, with the goal that these will replace their less eco-friendly alternatives. Customer are actively encouraged by staff to switch from plastic-based products to paper or cardboard alternatives where available.

Honeycomb Boards - Our Honeycomb boards are a great sustainable alternative to traditional Foamboard or Foamex products. They are manufactured from recycled content, in a completely plastic free production process. They are fully recyclable at the end of use, so are a perfect solution for use in exhibitions and events, which typically produce vast amounts of non-recyclable waste.

EcoFlex Banners - Our newly launched EcoFlex banners are a sustainable, fully-recyclable alternative to traditional PVC banners, maintaining the water and scratch-resistant attributes required for outdoor use. Manufactured from 100% PVC-free materials, they are ideal for external advertising and promotions.

Fabric Recycling Scheme - customers are able to use pre-paid returns labels to send fabric poster orders back to Captain Cyan. We then send these back to the fabric manufacturer, who recycle the materials to make new media rolls.

Cargo Bike Delivery

We aim to make the vast majority of all London deliveries using either our own in-house Urban Arrow cargo bike, or through partnership with Pedal Me, reducing our carbon emissions.

Eco-Friendly Ink Solutions

We are a member of ink recycling schemes with both Mimaki, Epson, and send all used ink cartridges back to the manufacturer for recycling. Our HP Latex and Epson inkjet printers both use aqueous inks, which are significantly greener than UV or Solvent equivalents.

Renewable Energy

Our production facility and shop are backed by 100% renewable energy, provided by SSE Energy. We have also switched our web hosting the ionos Internet, whose data centre runs on renewable wind energy. For more information on this, check out their website.

Energy Efficient Investment

In recent years we have invested in new print technology, to ensure that our systems are kept up-to-date with the latest energy-efficient processes. Old machinery is either sold on or returned to the manufacturer for recycling, and never thrown in landfill.

Instore LED Lights

Our instore are LED and powered by Solar in summer.

And More!

We are working on our own in-depth environmental policy to ensure that our business continues moving forward in an environmentally sustainable manner. This will be published here in due course.
