ISO 14001 Certified Printer
Marstan Press is an ISO 14001 certified printer. This is part of our commitment to environmentally friendly print production.
ISO 14001 is an internationally recognised environmental management system accreditation. To achieve certification a company must identify how they interact with the environment, the impacts of the interaction and take positive steps to reduce the environmental impact. Being an ISO 14001 certified printer shows that we abide by environmental laws; indeed we see this as a minimum standard.
Marstan Press has had a strong focus on environmentally friendly printing for years. We were early adopters of chemical free film making, and subsequently chemical free plate making.
For many years we have used an alcohol substitute on our litho printing presses for lower VOC emissions.Vegetable based inks have also been our standard ink for many years, and through utilisation of ink reduction technology and industry leading colour management systems we have reduced our ink wastage. As of 2018 we have an LED UV press which now requires specific UV inks.
Along with common practices such as a company recycling policy, we have also looked to make our vehicle fleet as green as possible. We were early adopters of petrol hybrid vehicles, and all our company owned cars are now plugin electric hybrid vehicles.
