Greening, your publication as green as possible
With Haveka, you can be sure that your publication has a lesser impact on the environment from beginning to end. While producers do their best to offer green products, the reality is that not all printers integrate this. We provide printed matter that is made from renewable resources with low environmental load based on the printing inks, certified recycled paper, printing and alcohol free and our ongoing collaboration with our suppliers. Greening makes your publication as green as possible.
We use (interior and cover) the Revive Paper quality.
5 reasons why…
Greening 1: FSC and PEFC are good, recycled is even better
Many environmental groups support forest certification, such as FSC and PEFC.
However, they recommend reducing reliance on virgin fibre as a better option.
This includes maximising the recycled fibre content of products.
Greening 2: Recycled paper = less waste to landfill = less greenhouse gas.
Dumping paper in a landfill site is a waste of resources and contributes to climate change.
Waste paper emits methane (a powerful greenhouse gas) as it breaks down.
In Europe an average of 42% of municipal waste is sent to landfill.
Using recycled paper reduces the amount of paper waste that is sent to landfill.
Greening 3: Producing recycled pulp has a lower environmental impact
The production of recycled pulp from waste paper uses less water, less energy and causes less pollution than producing virgin fibre pulp from trees.
Greening 4: Using recycled paper is a simple, strong statement
The ‘mobius loop’ logo can be freely used on recycled paper
Even if they’re not experts, most people know that recycled paper is good for the environment.
In comparison, on average only 25% of people recognise the FSC logo.
Greening 5: Revive is the most trusted brand of recycled paper
The broad range, choice of recycled content and FSC certification has made revive
the preferred choice for many customers.
In the UK, 40% of blue chip companies choose revive for their annual report.
