greenpiece: Enveloped in Sustainability
Heritage Envelopes, headquartered in London, is taking the responsible approach.
The company has joined the Two Sides Campaign, an initiative to promote the responsible production and use of print and paper and encourage its use as an attractive, practical and sustainable communications medium.
Heritage Envelopes, which produces more than 60 million envelopes a week, is one of the United Kingdom's leading suppliers of printed stock and bespoke envelopes and prides itself on offering an excellent manufacturing service to an increasingly diverse customer base.
The company always has taken environmental and sustainability issues extremely seriously and in 2006 was one of the first envelope manufacturers in the United Kingdom (U.K.) to be PEFC and FSC certified and sees the joining of Two Sides as a continuation of its commitment to promoting paper as a sustainable product.
Commenting on the action, Heritage's Logistics Director Martyn Salt said, "We have always been at the forefront of sustainability issues and have taken a proactive role in finding sustainable solutions within our business. Joining Two Sides shows how dedicated we are as a company towards promoting the sustainability of paper. We feel that we have a corporate responsibility to show that commitment and feel very strongly that it's important to get behind the Two Sides campaign. The industry is often unfairly criticized by people who are not informed about the industry and have widespread misconceptions about print and paper and its impact on the environment."
In addition, Heritage Envelopes has been committed to The Royal Mail's Sustainable Mail project for the past two years and has worked closely with the organization to achieve effective targeting and data management whilst ensuring that all paper and material used are recyclable and mailings carry the "Recycle Now" logo and/or a statement which will encourage customers to recycle the item.
