Sustainable Print

At Imageco, we're green to the core. We host an extensive range of eco-friendly materials; we use less carbon-intensive production methods and even carbon-offset. Imageco is leading the way in sustainable wide-format printing and we hope to inspire others to follow suit.

Sustainability Report

We are committed to sustainable change and are always striving for a greener future in the wide format print sector. As an advocate for sustainability, we developed a Sustainability Report to demonstrate our ambitions for the future and how we are dedicating a greater proportion of our work to sustainable products and projects.

Our Sustainability Accreditations and Certifications

ISO 14001 Certification

ISO 14001 is an internationally agreed standard that sets out the requirements for an environmental management system.

Designed for any type of organisation, regardless of its activity or sector, it helps to demonstrate our constant dedication to monitoring and reducing our environmental impact. This certification covers standards such as audits, communications, labelling, and life cycle analysis. We received our certification in 2022, but there were several years leading up to this, heavily investing in the refinement of our processes and actions to become more sustainable.

Carbon Neutral Printer: Carbon Quota

In 2022, we had the honour of working with Carbon Quota in the development of our net-zero pathway. This project was achieved through Carbon Quota undertaking extensive analysis of our day-to-day operations in order to quantify our operational carbon footprint. Our operational carbon footprint is the sum of the absolute carbon emissions associated with our buildings and vehicles. The intensity of CO2 emissions per tonne of substrate purchased associated with our direct operations was reduced by 49% between 2020 to 2021 (certified: CarbonQuota 2022).

Further actions needed to reach net-zero within Imageco were then decided upon within the development of our net-zero pathway. We then as a company made commitments to make the necessary changes to improve our operational carbon footprint. These commitments along with the purchase of certified carbon credits through Carbon Quota’s chosen schemes have allowed us to be certified as a Carbon Neutral printer. Becoming a certified carbon neutral printer is arguably one of our greatest sustainability achievements to date and we will continue to work on our commitments made within our net-zero pathway.

Cardboard Engineering

To avoid the plastic-based materials that are commonplace in the sector, we have dedicated extensive time and effort to establishing our cardboard engineering services. Our expert engineers can take flat sheets of cardboard and create 3D, bespoke structures to meet any brief. Cardboard engineering is a great alternative for exhibition stands and POS displays, as it can be entirely built from cardboard, durable for reuse, and then able to be recycled at its end of life

Elevate Events with Exhibox

We are constantly seeking new ways to enhance our sustainable portfolio, and we are fed up with the plastic-heavy materials options available in the exhibition space, so we decided to do something about it. Introducing….Exhibox. Exhibox is a new, sustainable solution to events and exhibition stands. Exhibox uses the principles of cardboard engineering to deliver an eco-friendly, easy-to-assemble, and of course reusable exhibition stand.
