At Surface View we care about our environment and our impact on it. We pride ourselves on our environmentally friendly, sustainable practises, and are proud to have been awarded BS ISO 14001:2015 for our environmental management system.
We recognise that there is still much work to be done, and we will continue to strive for improvement. This is only the beginning, but it's a good one. Welcome to our online repository for all sustainability information, where you can learn about what we're doing - and have already done - to reduce our environmental effect through our products, processes, and practises.
Built on confidence
We take a full product life cycle approach, evaluating our impact at every stage and consistently adjusting our products, technology, and systems in order to reduce the effect of our activities. We don’t make false claims or wave bogus flags, instead, we strive to lead by example by continually evolving and improving what we do.
Reduce, Re-Use, Recycle and Recover
We are committed to a circular economy and look to adopt processes that enable existing materials to be repurposed at the end of their use. Our Waste Hierarchy ensures we carefully control our waste streams, and aim to Reduce, Re-Use, Recycle and Recover whenever possible. We have achieved zero waste to landfill over the last 4 years.
Pushing the boundaries in print
We continually explore new materials manufactured by our suppliers and partners that offer a more sustainably produced base material. Where possible we look to adopt materials that offer both sets of benefits – made from recycled and recyclable themselves too.
eco from machinery to materials
We have transitioned to the use of water-based Greenguard Gold certified inks in all of our printing, allowing us to create hard-wearing products with intense depths of colour, whilst also staying kind to the environment and humans.
sustainability in our daily lives
Step by step we minimise our carbon footprint - something not only adhered to in our printing facilities. We have introduced energy-efficient equipment and are transitioning to EV company vehicles. We strive to lead by example, knowing that small changes will compound to deliver measurable results.
