CS Labels Certified with ISO 14001 for Environmental Management

The Willenhall label leader’s eco principles deem it viable for the leading certification

Willenhall, West Midlands, 23rd January 2014 – CS Labels have received the ISO 14001 accreditation for the implementation of its official Environmental Management System. The certificate confirms CS Labels enhanced awareness of environmental issues, and recognises the label producer’s efforts to reduce the impact of its activities on the environment.

CS Labels are market leaders in the field of digital label printing. They use leading edge products and materials from suppliers such as Xeikon, who themselves are particularly environmentally friendly. The company employ best-of-breed practices and principles that are expected of digital print, not only in terms of quality but also have minimal impact on their carbon footprint; this in turn reduces cost for the customer. Some examples:

Xeikon digital printing presses produce no hazardous emissions of VOCs (Volatile organic compounds), they don’t use any process water, so don’t cause any water pollution.
Digital label printing is overall much greener than traditional methods. It uses less raw materials, energy and water.
CS labels encourage customers to only ‘buy what they need’ whilst still keeping costs low. This minimises storage space.
Digital print requires no lengthy set up runs so no excess waste.
CS Labels will reduce their percentage of energy usage per value of turnover year on year. 
Internal processes that impact the environment are constantly re-evaluated and improved where applicable. For example, the frequency of ordering toner has been reduced which lowers shipping ‘air miles’ and the amount of order processing time and energy.  
Employees are well versed on ecological issues such as recycling, sensible use of water, heating and lighting and general concern about their ‘carbon footprint’.

Managing Director Simon Smith said:  “After an extremely thorough review I am pleased to say that we have been officially certified under this very important accreditation. At CS Labels the environment has been a concern of ours from day one, and this formal system gives us a sensible framework to use now, and in the future, where we will be further reducing our percentage of impact on the environment.”
