We recognise that a comprehensive solution to print industry sustainability begins with print buyers but does not end with Snap as a supplier of print products and services. It extends to our suppliers of equipment and raw materials, their suppliers and to the post-consumer disposal of any publication, product or service.
Our paper suppliers are committed to sustainability and ensure that their products are sourced with consideration of environmental factors. This includes measures to improve environmental impacts, such as the use of certified forest fibres, alternative renewable energy sources, and reducing chemical, energy, water usage and effluent.
Sustainable practices go beyond just our suppliers of paper, to also using sustainable printer suppliers. Some of the actions our printer suppliers are taking to reduce the environmental impact of production and manufacturing activities include cutting CO2 emissions, making effective use of water and other resources across the entire product lifecycle, and reaching as far as the use and disposal of products by customers. Our suppliers are constantly developing products and services that offer outstanding energy-saving and resource-saving results that will contribute to reducing the environmental impact on society at large.
Where possible, we endorse, promote, and work with supplier partners that are serious about sustainability.
