Daytona and our environment
PROMOTING SUSTAINABLE FOREST MANAGEMENT AND A HEALTHY ENVIRONMENT
Daytona Visual’s main supplies come from companies who are active members of the WWF-UK Forest and Trade Network, committed to responsible sourcing of paper and board based products.
All suppliers of paper and board must also be FSC and/or PEFC certified.
Being FSC certified shows that you comply with the highest social and environmental standards on the market. As public concerns about the state of the world’s forests and timber resources increases, FSC provides a credible solution to complex environmental and social issues.
PEFC has recognised certification systems in 36 countries. Together these account for over 264 million hectares of certified forests, making PEFC the world’s largest forest and wood product certification system.
We measure other suppliers against those practices because we are committed to using environmentally responsible consumables and substrates as a priority. Where possible, we educate and encourage our customers to favour recyclable polypropylenes rather than PVCs.
COMMITMENT TO REDUCING SOLVANT BASED INKS
Daytona Visual has been committed to year on year reduction of solvent based inks and derivatives. Daytona are proud to announce that we have reduced our usage from almost 100% solvent based inks down to less than 1%, by using U.V. Cure, ECO and water based technologies. Investment in these new print and ink technologies are considerably less harmful to the environment.
