Sustainability, Climate change, Environmental, Green solutions, Global warming, Clean oceans, Greenhouse effect.
Words that have become part of our everyday language.
At establish-id, they are more than words; they are a part of our DNA. Every action we take, every interaction we make, we question how they impact our beautiful planet.
When choosing who we work with, whether clients or supply partners, the first question we ask ourselves is whether they align with our environmental beliefs and are willing to help protect our home.
Our efforts to become carbon-zero ensure that we're always looking for new and innovative ways to continue cutting our emissions and pivoting to sustainable solutions wherever possible.
The obvious is easy, a tree planted with every order placed, switching to electric vehicles, sourcing clean energy, 1.4% of received payments donated to climate change, LED lighting. These are just a few of our actions to slow global warming.
We make a difference in how we are mindful that over 90% of the projects we undertake result in a physical product being produced, and a high percentage of those projects are printed materials.
Paper has a bad press but should it?
Paper is made from trees, a natural and renewable resource that absorbs atmospheric carbon dioxide - the absorbed carbon element of which is retained in timber and timber-derived products ... including paper!
We are well aware of the effects of deforestation but need to be made aware that paper is not a primary cause. In fact, you'll find that paper accounts for less than 14% of the world's harvested timber.
We encourage our customers to use FSC-certified European-produced papers. Safe in the knowledge that since 2005 European forests have grown by more than 58,000 km2.
That's an area larger than Switzerland!
We don't stop at paper. For our Point of Sale vinyl, we have sourced 40% recycled vinyl and introduced a new initiative offering a prepaid postal service for returning used vinyl for us to have recycled into long-use plastics.
For us, it's not just about the initiatives we implement or the materials we use. We still desire to do more, which is why we offer full environmental audits to our customers. These audits can be carried out cost-free, providing it is agreed the recognised savings are passed onto marketing budgets, allowing us to work on more projects together in the most sustainable ways.
Paper and Print are one of the lowest industrial emitters of greenhouse gases, accounting for just 0.8% of global greenhouse gas emissions.
While Direct Mail is still widely recognised as the most effective form of advertising, with, according to JICMAIL, a 95% engagement rate and 31% commercial action.
