Tradeprint’s 5 Steps Towards Sustainability Success.


Beyond the Press: Tradeprint’s Environmental Commitment

At Tradeprint, sustainability isn’t just a goal—it’s a fundamental focus ingrained in everything we do. We’re actively improving our processes at every level to reduce our environmental impact. From refining our manufacturing techniques to carefully selecting environmentally credible products for our customers, such as our PVC-Free banners and recycled business cards. We’re committed to finding innovative ways to integrate sustainable practices into our operations. Our aim is clear: to achieve success through sustainable measures, ensuring a brighter, greener future.

Here are five steps that we are taking to succeed in our sustainability efforts.

1. Responsible Forestry Practices:

Tradeprint aims to ensure that all wood-fibre products and packaging materials are sourced from responsible forestry practices, with targets set for the proportion of spend on Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified products. This initiative helps preserve forests and promotes sustainable management of natural resources.

2. Problematic Plastic Elimination:

Tradeprint is committed to eliminating problematic plastic from both its products and packaging by 2025. This involves setting targets to reduce and eventually eliminate the use of plastic that is difficult to recycle or poses environmental hazards. This initiative aligns with broader efforts to reduce plastic pollution and promote a circular economy.

3. Circularity and End-of-Life Solutions:

Tradeprint aims to ensure that all products containing plastic are recyclable, reusable, compostable, or eligible for return to the company. By prioritising circularity and end-of-life solutions, Tradeprint is working to minimise waste and extend the lifespan of its products, contributing to a more sustainable approach to manufacturing and consumption.

4. Carbon Emissions Reduction Program:

As part of the Cimpress family of businesses, Tradeprint has initiated a comprehensive carbon emissions reduction program. This program follows a science-derived 1.5°C target pathway, aiming to achieve net-zero emissions by 2040. Tradeprint is investing in energy-efficient infrastructure, considering options for renewable energy sourcing, and sustainable shipping options to achieve these ambitious goals.

5. Collaboration and Advocacy:

Tradeprint actively collaborates with industry organisations such as FESPA-UK, Reconomy, the IPIA, and the BPIF to promote sustainability within the printing industry. By participating in sustainability partnerships, funding initiatives, and environmental forums, Tradeprint is not only implementing internal initiatives but also advocating for broader systemic change and raising awareness of sustainability issues across the industry.
