For nearly a century Service Point has supported a diverse range of organisations with their document and print requirements – a fact that bears true testament to the sustained ability we can provide for those seeking quality and continuity today.
We work closely with clients, helping to smooth the peaks and troughs of rapidly changing business demands and climates, by ensuring they have the best document management and visual communication resources fully at their disposal. Setting stringent targets for reducing the amount of waste going to landfill and the amount of energy and fuel that we consume, we are accredited with ISO14001 across the majority of our locations.
In the UK we are proud to be amongst a small group of organisations in our sector accredited with the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) – Chain of Custody guaranteeing our paper comes from forests managed to internationally agreed principles. These include: compliance with national legislation, respect for local people’s rights, ecological integrity, economic viability and the need for adequate planning and monitoring of operations.
Our colour management accreditation ensures far less waste in the production process and our waste management accreditation ensures everything we dispose of is done with the least impact to the environment.
Our environmental footprint has been minimised in many ways. The most significant development being our ability to split print through our global network, we call this ‘Distribute, Print, Distribute’ whereby work is printed as near as possible to the final recipient, thus reducing the carbon emissions generated by long haul logistics. The environmental impact is reduced further by the use of digital rather than lithographic production where possible with its lower energy and chemical use and then further improved by the utilisation of finishing techniques designed to minimize the use of hazardous chemicals.
