HAMMONDS Goes Green!

Yorkshire based book binder and print finisher Hammonds is very proud to announce formal accreditation to the ISO 14001 environmental standard.

The bindery's enviable green offering provides all the top quality book binding and print finishing services you would expect together with the added bonus of being environmentally sound. The employment of the most efficient equipment, energy saving compressors, automated recycling of waste and finishing options such as recyclable laminate, means that buyers can place orders knowing that products are as environmentally friendly as possible which is increasingly important to the client and end user.

Careful planning and investment in recent years has resulted in the ISO 14001 Auditors concluding that as a newly accredited company Hammonds' environmental position is 'years ahead' compared to most companies upon receiving the qualification. The initiatives introduced to reduce our carbon footprint throughout the business were crucial to our future proofing strategy. We are delighted to have now achieved both ISO 14001and the ISO 9001 quality standard.
