CGI Europe Ltd, one of the leading providers of print and communications, has demonstrated its commitment to the environment by achieving accreditation for ISO 14001, the environmental management standard, in only five months.
“We have been benchmarking our operations against this environmental legislation for some time”, said Barry Page, Managing Director of CGI Europe. “We recognise that print companies need to take their responsibilities seriously to help minimise the impact on the environment and have made significant investments to offer our customers superb quality print whilst being kinder on the environment. Identifying the most effective ways to minimise environmental risk, control waste, meet legislation requirements and save energy forms an integral part of our business strategy. Having these processes already in place allowed us to achieve accreditation very quickly and we have already met one of our targets of recycling 99% of our waste.”
CGI Europe’s achievement puts them in the top 1% of the UK’s greenest printers according to www.ppe.uk.net, a newly launched website featuring print companies that have proven their environmental commitment through appropriate accreditation. According to the website, there are at least 10,000 printers in the UK and less than 100 have invested resources in reducing their environmental impact over and above the legal requirements. The site is supported by Friends of the Earth, Greenpeace, the BPIF, WWF and the Soil Association
