Working in an industry that relies so heavily on paper, we understand our environmental responsibilities and are always striving to reduce our impact on the world around us. As part of this ongoing initiative, Fergies has been working together with ISO standards and the Printing Industries Association of Australia to ensure our total compliance with legislation and regulations in all areas of our operations. Our activities and work in carrying out environmentally friendly processes has led to accreditation ISO 14001:2004 – Environmental Management System and more recently, certification within the Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain of Custody program. Supporting our world class environmentally friendly processes is a strong focus on quality; with the accreditation of ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System.
Fergies paper is produced exclusively from fibre grown in renewable plantations and our ink is soy, not petroleum based. We have also changed our printing plates, presses and ink delivery process to reflect the continual improvement philosophy throughout the company.
Our 3 tick Sustainable Green Print accreditation is the Australian printing industry’s own recognisable certification program designed to allow printing companies meet their environmental responsibilities and go above and beyond compliance. We are the only communications partner in Queensland with 3 ticks.
We were the first printer in Queensland to become an ecoBiz partner. EcoBiz is the EPA’s signature partnership program and it enables businesses to achieve cost savings and take advantage of the profitability of improved environmental performance. We have reduced our Green House Gas emissions by 186 tonnes of CO2, achieved waste reduction of 896 cubic metres and potable water savings of 339 kilolitres.
Our commitment doesn’t stop there. We became signatories to the United Nations Global Compact and is an endorsement of the strong demonstration of Fergies leadership and vision in advancing the tenets of corporate sustainability and the principles of the UN Global Compact
It’s just another way in which we’re working to be more considerate of our planet.
