Respecting the environment is central to everything we do.
From the choice of our materials, to our investments, as well as our daily behaviour.

Greener printing techniques

From the technical point of view, the digitial process makes on-demand printing possible. Printing on a more regular basis but shorter print runs. Fewer unused products, so less waste and storage requirements. Our printing presses operate with minimal resources and produce minimum waste.

Choice and traceability of materials

We attach great importance to the choice and traceability of materials used in the production process. They must meet stringent ecological and performance criteria. Our suppliers are selected with the greatest care, and all our waste is recycled or processed by specialist companies.

Environmentally sustainable buildings

Even our workshops and the structure of our production system have been designed with this in mind. We use natural ventilation, recover the heat produced by the machines, and favour natural light to minimise our ecological footprint. Our offices were designed by P-L Rigaux and Matriciel, a renowned design and engineering company and a spin-off of UCL specialising in sustainable architecture.

FSC® Certification

The combination of all these elements has led to PR-Print holding FSC® certification for several years
