Environmental Commitment

File Leader Graphics Limited (FLG) have an Environmental Policy Statement which adheres to standards set by ISO14001 which is implemented by the Directors.

  • we proactively work to reduce our impact on the environment by advising clients how to make best use of printed materials over digital media
  • we add value to printed media to ensure it is used to its best abilities and encourage end-users to recycle it where possible
  • we only stock recycled paper and FSC and PEFC accredited paper products supplied by HP which come from sustainably managed forests

Our internal environmental issues and solutions are identified below:

  • energy saving devices built in to our production equipment and PC’s
  • low energy fluorescent lighting
  • low heating requirement utilizing equipment energy in well insulated premises; leading to easily managed consistent temperature range required to keep the equipment and substrates at their optimum
  • all parts of the digital equipment are refurbished or recycled according to HP Environmental Policy
  • latex ink containers are recycled
  • latex ink waste are disposed of through HP recycled waste stream and are inert
  • we recycle all paper substrate waste through a specialist waste stream along with general ‘recyclables’.
  • our general non recyclable waste amounts to one sack every three weeks and continues to fall since installing a segregated recyclable bins
