Global Recycling Day

Global Recycling Day 2019

With the earth yielding billions of tonnes of natural resources every year to transform into consumables we must, as human beings, think about the waste we produce.

Global Recycling Day was created in 2018 to help recognise and celebrate the importance of recycling and how it will help to secure the future of the planet.

Here at Encore, we approach our impact on the earth with realism and responsibility all year round. We aim to communicate with integrity on all matters concerning the environment and take real care to curb the effects of our business.

  • Through paper and board size optimisation, waste is kept to an absolute minimum
  • 100 per cent of any waste that is generated is recycled
  • We adopt the waste hierarchy principle meaning our waste reduction efforts start right at the beginning, during the purchasing of our materials
  • We only use water-based inks and glues; these have a much lesser impact on the environment than solvents
  • Our dedicated team of knowledgeable engineers work to ensure all our plants and machinery operate efficiently and with the latest technology

Recycling, whether within business or at home, saves more CO2 emissions each year than those generated by the entire aviation industry, protecting the earth’s valuable natural resources.

We are proud to say that we increased our recycling by 13 per cent between 2017 and 2018; the amount of paper we currently recycle is enough to encircle the earth 8.9 times!
