TECHNOLOGY

Our continuous investment in a raft of environmental strategies addressing product and printing press technology, allows us to use fewer chemicals and less energy throughout the production process. A great example is our Heidelberg five-colour press which is equipped with an in-line aqueous water-based coater, enabling printed paper recycling without harmful by-products.

FOREST STEWARDSHIP COUNCIL®

As a Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certified printer FSC CO19817, we can elevate your projects to meet the highest environmental and social standards. This process ensures that your products come from responsible sources. Sustainable sourcing puts forests and people first. Show your commitment, and talk to our team about making your next project with FSC® certified products.

ENVIRONMENTAL INKS

We use environmentally friendly soy and vegetable-based inks made from the extracts of corn, walnut, coconut, linseed, canola and soybean. These are often blended for best printing results. Vegetable-based inks are a renewable resource not requiring harmful solvents to clean the printing presses, and are easier to de-ink—unlike petroleum-based inks—in the recycling process.

RECYCLING

Rawson has implemented a recycle and reuse program in our factory, which means that we reuse or recycle 100% of all print waste materials including recycling ink for future jobs. We also ensure that all other waste is sorted before disposal to ensure materials stay away from—and therefore reduce—landfill. We extend this due diligence to reporting on this activity on monthly basis.

RESOURCES / ENERGY

Rawson's adoption of energy-efficient lighting systems and innovative printing press technology throughout our factory minimises the environmental footprint of our Australian based manufacturing facility. These initiatives come together to provide our clients with print solutions that they can be confident are environmentally-friendly. See Reduction and Technology for more details.

REDUCTION

While this applies to energy-efficiencies, our use of Computer-to-Plate technology (CTP) is an important reduction strategy eliminating the use of film. With this technology, we use fewer chemicals and less water. Additionally, electronic proofing also uses fewer materials while providing faster turnaround and the elimination of the need for couriers, further reducing CO2 emissions.
