We’re serious about our future...
...and so we became the first major UK publisher to attain the ISO 14001
environmental standard – a strict measurement of a business’s effects on air, water and land.
The British Standards Institute
(BSI) regularly checks that we meet the requirements of this international standard and that we’re working to improve our environmental performance.
We ensure that all the printers we use are fully environmentally accredited with ISO14001, PEFC and FSC accreditation and that all the paper we use on every job, no matter how small, is sourced from a sustainable paper source.
And because the natural resources we use are limited, we are working toward creating more sustainable publications and sustainable workplaces.
As we continue to improve our environmental performance we continue to be recognised by others. We were one of the first companies to sign up to the Green500 initiative
which is championed by the Mayor of London. The scheme’s aim is to reduce the carbon footprints of London businesses, and at its first awards ceremony in 2009, Haymarket was awarded Gold
for its efforts in carbon reduction.
Our Teddington Studios office earned an Exceptional Award
from the Richmond Borough Council’s GoGreenRichmond scheme
in 2009. It was the first time Richmond had issued their highest award under the scheme.
In 2012 the UK Periodical Publishers Association (PPA) gave Haymarket the Best Environmentally Sustainable Business (Publisher) Award
and in 2006 they gave Haymarket its Environmental Performance Award and highly commended us for the same award in 2007. We also won the Environmental Client Award
at the Quality in Print Awards in 2007.
