Reducing Our Carbon Footprint

1. Introduction

Being fully aware of our social and environmental footprint on our world and the immense responsibility that manufacturers and consumers share in the future of our land. The plan addresses how we will increase the size of our business while simultaneously reducing our environmental impact and increasing our positive social impact by outlining three main goals for us to achieve by 2022.

Help employees internal and externally improve their health and well-being.
2. Reduce the environmental footprint of our products by 50%.
3. Source 100% of raw materials sustainably. 

2. Focus Priority Areas

We have identified four priority areas where we can make the most impact in our country.

1. Reducing use of solvents by our customers.
2. Reducing our packaging footprint.
3. Source 100% of raw materials sustainably.
4. Improving and ensuring a more healthy workforce.

The plan accepts that we have a responsibility across the full life-cycle of our products from the sourcing of raw materials all the way through to the impact of our factories, offices, transport and to the use of our products at our customers operations.

3. Waste Management

All waste is seperated into paper, plastics & metals, which are sent for recycling to approved suppliers. In terms of transport we encourage bulk deliveries so that vehicle movement can be minimized thereby reducing emissions. This is also practiced when ordering materials from suppliers.

4. Eco-friendly

Unistar Inks is committed to actively following a path of offering greener alternatives for its customers. Part of how we achieve this is by utilising bio-derived renewable raw materials, minimising volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs), eliminating raw materials that contain toxic, heavy materials or known carcinogens, and making sure that our inks do not impede recycling or biodegradation of the finished packaging. In recognition of our obligation to maintain an eco-friendly environment and our planet’s long term sustainability, we have incorporated an environmental policy which eencompasses many factors that puts our environment first.
