Meet ‘Our Leslie’!

At AB Print, we take our green credentials very seriously which is why for more than a decade we have remained committed to an in-depth environmental policy, to reduce the environmental impact of the printed matter we manufacture. This is not only essential to the environment, it also makes good business sense.

One way we do this is by generating our own energy through our on-site wind turbine, also known as ‘our Leslie’, who has been working overtime lately with some gusty south westerlies, not forgetting storm Ali which generated some serious wattage.

Other ways we do this include eliminating Isopropanol/alcohol from the press room and recycling any wasted paper which not only provides us a small return, we’re safe in the knowledge it’s being re-pulped and finding its way back into the paper chain.

Moving forward, we are looking to modernize our offices, producing more of an open space to create a communal sales and estimating area. Our MD, Alan Williamson, and Sales Director, Alan Goodall, will also be accompanying the team in this space; this will be great for sharing knowledge as we develop the team. In terms of improving our environmental impact whilst undergoing this maintenance, we are looking into installation of LED lighting to increase energy efficiency.

Adopting best practice and ‘doing the right thing’ has always been important to us, including using FSC certified material. Our promise is that we will continue to improve environmental efficiencies in all areas of our business by:

  • Raising our team’s awareness through ongoing education and training
  • Encouraging innovative and practical energy saving ideas for all employees
  • Selecting suppliers with strong environmental research and development policies

Overall, having a responsible approach to energy conservation and waste is extremely important to us at AB Print and we hope to continue looking at ways to develop this.
