Seacourt — A Carbon Neutral Printing Company

Some years ago, Seacourt Press say they came to a "sudden and shocking realisation" surrounding the environmental impact of the printing industry, and thus "an immediate shift in policy was set in motion". And they've sure been busy shifting gears. Seacourt were only the second printer worldwide to be certified as a "Carbon Neutral company." Additionally they have attained recognition under two environmental management certification programs: EMAS (the european Eco-Management & Audit Scheme) and the international standard ISO 14001. The company is committed to waterless printing, and are one of only about a dozen printers, in the UK, who are members of the Waterless Printing Association (of whom we'll bring you more info soon.) Seacourt see the advantages of waterless printing through avoid use of "vast quantities" of water and harmful polluting chemicals, with the added benefit of sharper image reproduction. As one of their taglines proclaims "Think of Seacourt as a company who are not only committed to you, but to everything around you." ::SeacourtWe've previously mentioned other green printers here and here, as well as green thinking graphic designers.
