ISO Standards Retained

Following a successful annual ISO external audit in March 2016, Charlesworth Press is celebrating a decade of holding the ISO 9001 Quality accreditation. There have been a lot of changes here since we were first accredited in 2006.

Following a recent external audit, we have retained our ISO 9001 quality and ISO 14001 environmental accreditations for a further three years. We have now been accredited to these ISO standards for nine and seven years respectively. We have also held FSC Chain of Custody certification since July 2009.

We continue to work hard to improve wherever possible, with 100% paper, and 97% of all other waste being recycled, our focus on reducing energy consumption is ongoing. We have been participating in the Government’s Climate Change Levy Reduction scheme through the BPIF, and are working to targets set of 2.1% improvements in efficiency each year until 2016.

All our litho printing is done using processless platemaking, recyclable plates and vegetable based inks, so we were delighted to receive this chemistry free 'AZURA Ambassador 2015' accolade from Agfa Graphics recently.

We're helping the environment in every way we can!
