Designing sustainably We are accredited by the Acorn Environmental Management System and as part of our BS8555, we strive to record the environmental impact of our printing projects and continually work on reducing the amount of resources we use.
Overall impact Because 80% of the environmental impact of a project is decided at design stage, we work with our clients at the planning stage of the marketing strategy to influence the overall sustainability of each project.
Grave to cradle At the start of a job, we first look at a sustainable end life for the marketing materials we will create, then work backwards to assess the environmental impact at every stage.
Eco-toolkit We use a sustainability scorecard that evaluates the impact of the materials and processes used in each of our projects. This scorecard informs an environmental certificate which we produce at the end of each project, and give to our clients. Our team at Beam is also given an environmental-checklist to follow.
