ENVIRONMENT

At Progress Printing, we pride ourselves on our operations and processes, especially when it comes to quality and the environment. Our systems are audited by an accredited third party, Proactive Compliance, to ensure our business is compliant with the requirements of ISO9001, ISO14001 and AS4801. Progress Printing is proud to have the appropriate certifications for all three standards. Click here to view our compliance certificate.







Our purpose-built premises boasts many energy-efficient and sustainable initiatives including a large array of roof mounted solar panels, rainwater capture and reticulation, and wastepaper recycling and compaction.          

Over 90% of the paper we use is either recycled, FSC or PEFC accredited, meaning that the paper is sourced from sustainable forests/plantation timber. We are proud to support the printing and paper industry which has transformed itself over the last 20 years into one of the greenest industries in the country. 

Did you know? – Paper is recyclable, biodegradable and one of the most sustainable products known to mankind. The paper industry plants roughly four times as many trees as they harvest. Sustainable forests are very good for the environment providing massive carbon storage, clean air, wildlife habitat and an outdoors environment for recreational pursuits such as bushwalking and bird watching.

TRIPLE BOTTOM LINE (3BL): Economic, Social and Environment

Part of the integrity of our client relationships is our belief that at no stage whatever, should our clients be exposed to any risks in dealing with us. This covers Environmental accreditation, Quality Control and Financial Stability.  

One of the most significant threats nowadays is the fragile state of large sectors of the printing industry. Post GFC, we have seen the print industry decline by 25%. The result has been some of the largest printers in the country go into liquidation, change ownership or simply close their doors, leaving clients scrambling to find someone to service their needs. 

We invite and encourage our clients to conduct thorough due diligence before engaging our services. We are a financially stable organisation with real assets and low debt. This is why we are able to offer a comprehensive 100% Customer Satisfaction guarantee or reprint for free. Our experience means we can assess every job and notify our client well in advance of any potential problems. Transparency is the key to management and mitigation of problems before they arise. 

Additionally, we fit into the SME sector of approved suppliers to many divisions of NSW Government. We are proud to regularly supply print collateral to: 

  • Department of Primary Industry
  • Department of Education/ TAFE
  • NSW Office of Environment and Heritage
  • Local Land Service
  • Department of Industry
  • Water NSW
  • Australian Rail Track Corporation(ARTC)
