Environmentally Friendly

At Alba we are committed to reducing our impact on the Environment and carbon footprint. We possess ISO 14001:2015 so we have a programme for continual improvement.

We have discovered that environmentally friendly policies actually saves money. Recycling waste materials, installing new LED lighting and employing the latest technology, not only improves productivity and quality, it also reduces our direct costs through using fewer materials and less power.

As well as a commitment to help improve the world we live in, we are commited to reducing our impact on the environment directly.

Ensures you take delivery of high quality output which embodies value for money

We have a policy of constantly upgrading our equipment to keep quality, productivity and costs as competitive as possible for our customers, but also to reduce environmental impact.

Our latest press does not require the use of alcohol, which not only reduces the harm to the environment but also means a:

  • 30% reduction in set up time
  • 50% reduction in paper usage at start up
  • reduction in electricity usage

All of which reduces our direct costs, as well as enabling a higher quality of print.

Process-less plates

We don’t use chemicals, which results in a direct saving on material used and an indirect saving from not having to dispose of used chemicals.

We recycle plates, waste paper, ink rags and ink tins – yielding a contribution to overheads from resultant revenue.

We take responsibility for our waste products by using accredited waste recycling companies to clean our ink rags, recycle printing plates, ink tins and waste paper.

We only use alcohol free printing process and vegetable based inks and all empty ink tins are stored by us until they are collected for recycling.

Within the pre-press studio all toner cartridges are recycled as required for Accreditation.


All paper is supplied from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) accredited companies. This ensures our paper supplies come from properly managed and sustainable forests.

Helps you achieve the required environmental standards in your supply chain
