These revolutionary plates require no processing after exposure and entirely eliminate the use of harmful developer. Additionally DWJ Group is one of just a few printers in the UK to have installed a PowerPerfector voltage optimisation unit in its main factory, reducung annual electrical consumption by up to 20%.
Our guiding principles of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle are adopted wherever possible throughout the company. This has seen a dramatic reduction in packaging waste and an increase in what we recycle. Recycling of all our waste paper, board, plates and plastic is a prerequisite, as is the use of vegetable based inks whenever practical. In addition, all office paper, board, CDs, cans and plastic are recycled. We also encourage staff to utilise electronic document management where possible and to duplex all printed documents in order to reduce paper consumption.
As part of our responsibility to our employees and the community we live within, we adhere to a Health & Safety policy, a comprehensive set of risk assessments and COSSH files, all of which are regularly reviewed and updated. Protection of the environment in which we live and operate is part of our values and principles and we consider it to be sound business practice. Care for the environment is one of our key responsibilities and an important part of the way in which we do business. Wherever possible we source goods and services locally as part of our commitment to sustainable procurement. We assess the sustainability of companies within our supply chain prior to approval and favour suppliers on location and environmental best practice.
