Smart printers should go green: regional Qld printer

The Mackay firm achieved its level two certification in May after a 12-month implementation process, said partner Kathy Farren-Price.

"We were already practicing it, but we weren't documenting it, so it wasn't a huge transition for us," she told ProPrint.

"Our environmental accreditation is essential for us to remain at the forefront of printing in Queensland.

"Environmentally sound practices are the future of the printing industry and ensure that we are not only doing our bit for the environment but also attracting clients who choose to work alongside an environmentally responsible company."

BB Print's other partner, Gary Bye, said the certification reflected the company's commitment to the environment and its desire to constantly improve.

"By taking responsibility for the impact we have on the environment we can also improve efficiency. We recycle everything possible even down to the rags we use," he said.

BB Print has about 20 staff and won a gold medal at the 2012 PICAs for 'first time entries'.
