the future now.
Kale Print's commitment to sustainability for a brighter tomorrow.
As a family business that has been operating for more than 35 years, we firmly believe it is the responsibility of each generation to leave things in better shape for the generation that follows.
Operating in a responsible way has become part of our DNA.
We do this by actively participating and supporting our community on a local and national level. By proactively pursuing sustainability credentials as proof of our commitment. By providing a safe and inclusive culture where diversity is valued.
When you choose Kale Print as your preferred print partner, we will not only provide you with a quality product but also demonstrate opportunities to reduce your impact on the environment.
In 2019 we achieved FSC certification, a first for our industry in the Bay of Plenty. The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), is an internationally recognised organisation responsible for promoting and monitoring environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable management of the world’s forests.
FSC certification tracks the wood from the forest to the shelf. So when you see the FSC label on a product, you can be sure that the paper came from responsible sources and has followed a strict chain of custody.
Along with this, a robust waste management regime to remove all single use plastics from our manufacturing facility was implemented.
The purchase of industry leading offset and digital print technology with lower emissions and less wastage when setting up has further reduced our power consumption.
Further to the work already being done in the environmental space, in November 2021 we committed to an ambitious goal of achieving climate neutral status by the year 2023.
The initiative, managed by Toitū, involves a framework to undertake meaningful, science-led action and have a positive impact on society, working towards a carbon positive future.
