NORWOOD SUSTAINABILITY

At Norwood we’re committed to creating and implementing sustainable solutions by placing the environment at the forefront of our systems and practice. Norwood has a long-standing and solid commitment to sustainable and environmentally conscious large-scale printing processes, with a comprehensive Environmental Policy in place. A mind towards sustainability doesn’t begin and end at our products. Instead, we try to consider it in every aspect of our business approach.

This is accomplished while still maintaining a high quality and price competitive product. Norwood applies best practice in each step of the printing process from digital proofing to most effective substrate use by ensuring that laydowns are done in a way that utilises the maximum amount of the printed substrate.

This has the added benefit of minimising costs across the process allowing a lower unit cost. Any polypropylene waste that is generated is 100 per cent recycled in partnership with Martogg LCM. This sustainability is possible due to high levels of staff training and the culture of environmental impact awareness that has been created at Norwood.
