Printing is one of the most polluting industries in the UK and we are committed to reducing our impact on the environment.

We have earned a Carbon Smart Gold Level Certificate, and gained this by reducing our carbon footprint – the average for a printing company is 5.1 C02e Tonnes per staff member whereas at City Printing we have cut this to 2.9C02e tonnes per staff member.

We always use partly or fully recycled FSC approved paper and any waste paper we recycle, either through the local council or by donating it to local schools. We have invested in printing machines that use truly eco friendly inks and our couriers are carbon neutral and winners of the Greenfleet award.

The vast majority of paper we use comes from Europe, where the forest is growing by an area four times the size of London every year.

Simply put, City Printing works had to become one of the most eco friendly, green printers in London and beyond.
