Here at VGL we pride ourselves on our environmentally friendly, sustainable practises, and are proud to have been awarded BS ISO 14001:2004 for our environmental management system.
We are dedicated to consistently improving our products, technology, and systems in order to reduce our impact on the environment. We don’t make false claims or wave bogus flags, instead, we strive to lead by example by continually evolving and improving what we do.
In recent years, all of our digital printing equipment has been updated where possible, enabling us to use more environmentally friendly ink systems and processes.
In order to remain at the forefront of sustainability practices, we constantly explore new material options with our suppliers and partners. For example, in order to reduce our carbon footprint, we investigated new, eco-friendly options such as digital textiles and printing with water-based dyes.
This innovative system is lightweight, easy to handle, and more energy-efficient to ship than other, heavier display systems. They are also 100% recyclable, and the water-based dyes are harmless, odour free, and produce no VOCs (volatile organic compounds).
We carefully control our waste streams, avoiding unnecessary wastage, and recycling as much material as possible. We have also introduced energy-efficient equipment, company cars, and improved our heating and insulation systems to significantly reduce our carbon footprint.
We appreciate ISO 14001 accreditation is just the start, but it’s a good one.
