Scott Print took home an award in the ‘Waste and Resource Management’ category, with the winners announced at a gala dinner at the Hyatt Regency in Perth. The awards aim to spotlight companies that have a true commitment to sustainability, and Andrew Neale, director at Scott Print, claiming it is the latest in a long line of achievements for the company.

“Clients can be assured that their printing requirements are being manufactured in the most environmentally friendly manner, and that Scott Print will continue to work with staff, suppliers, clients and the wider community to promote the benefits of responsible management,” he says.

Scott Print was a finalist in the 2004 Environmental Awards, and one of the first to achieve Green Stamp Accreditation. The company was also the first printing business in Western Australia to receive Environmental Management System certification for the ISO 14001 standard.

Neale says the award enhances his company’s corporate philosophy of producing the best quality print possible while also minimizing the impact upon the environment. Scott Print has introduced related initiatives into every aspect of the business, from prepress through to finishing, but insists no compromise was made on quality at any stage.

Some of the company’s achievements in the lat year include:

  • Paper waste – reduced by 5 per cent
