Zenith Media Environmental Policy
Zenith Media are experienced lithographic and digital printers based in Pontypool, South Wales. The company was established in 1993 and currently employs over 100 staff. The company specialises in the efficient turnaround of high quality printed materials including but not limited to business cards, leaflets, brochures, magazines, books and folders.
The Company is committed to achieving continuous improvement and minimising our impact on the environment and are committed to the prevention of pollution by demonstrating our environmental improvement through:
• Complying with all relevant legislation and other environmental codes of practice.
• Continuously improve our environmental performance by developing objectives that target waste minimisation, energy conservation and reducing its carbon footprint. These objectives are set based upon the company’s internal aspects and impacts assessment.
• Developing productive relationships with suppliers, contractors and other interested parties.
• Improving staff awareness of their own environmental responsibilities.
Our commitment to the environment is further extended through certification to the FSC® Chain of Custody standard to give Zenith Media and our customers confidence that the paper material we use has been sourced from sustainably managed forests. In addition to this, Zenith Media have adopted a proactive approach to informing our customers of the benefits which come from using certified material and how they can promote their own environmental practices by including the FSC® logo on their products.
In addition to using certified materials Zenith Media use vegetable based inks which are completely non-hazardous and therefore far kinder to the environment.
As a side effect of our production process, the Company produces quantities of hazardous waste. To ensure our waste is correctly disposed of we use certified waste carriers for its collection. Where possible our waste is treated and recycled, anything that cannot be recycled is disposed of by the certified waste carriers used.
For packaging our product, we use, paper, plastics and cardboard. Any wastage of these materials is segregated into designated bins and recycled.
Our Environmental Management System has been assessed and is certificated against the requirements of ISO 14001:2015 and is subject to surveillance by an external certification body.
This policy is reviewed at least annually to ensure it is accurate and in line with the company’s processes, targets and objectives. This policy is available to all interested parties on request.
