Green credentials

Sustainable forestryProgress Presss is very aware of the fact that the planet we inhabit requires ever more care and vigilance in the way its resources are used and in what is put back into the environment.

As a result, much attention has been given to any possible measure we could adopt to reduce our impact on the environment, thereby assuring that efficiency and quality go hand-in-hand with environmental sustainability and accountability.

In concrete terms, when constructing the new premises in Mriehel, special attention was given to ensure that the building adopted within it sustainable practices, including:

  • the conservation of fuel and power through the use of an energy efficient plant and equipment 
  • appropriate light fittings 
  • presence detectors in specific areas (for e.g. W.C.s) in order to ensure that lights are not left on when the spaces are unoccupied
  • energy saving lamps 
  • R410A refrigerant for the ACs which has highly reduced global warming and ozone depleting potentials
  • ACs fitted with inverter driven compressors where possible to ensure improved energy efficiency 
  • fabric ductwork on the shopfloor which offers improved air distribution patterns 
  • in the colder months, free cooling will be obtained through the introduction of external fresh air in areas of high heat load which will be controlled by the Building Management System 
  • rainfall will be collected and stored as a source of second class water for WC flushing and / or irrigation 
  • process effluent generated during the printing process is drained through a separate stream and segregated for proper control, treatement and disposal
  • solar water heaters at roof level provide domestic hot water.

Each FSC certified company is given a chain of custody number. In the case of Progress Press, our COC number is
