'Sustainable' is our default setting

Soar Print has been on a sustainability journey since 2004, when we achieved our first accreditation. Unless you ask for specific inks and papers, we"ll always propose the lowest impact solution for every job. This means:

  • All carbon emissions from power and fuel consumed by Soar are offset with NZ sourced carbon credits

  • The opportunity to have Toitû carbonzero printed products and printed services, which includes the right to use the Toitû carbonzero logo

  • A wide choice of responsibly sourced papers, either FSC or PEFC

  • Printing with vegetable based inks

  • Recommendation of best finished size to minimise paper waste

  • Optimum run sizes to reduce paper waste and minimise obsolescence

  • Energy efficient printing and finishing technology

  • Paper waste recycling (99%)

  • Online print management that allows just in time print ordering
