As we strive for a more sustainable world, the printing industry has made remarkable advancements, particularly in eco-friendly practices, with digital printing at the forefront. In this article, we present Duggal as a case study of the positive impact of digital printing on our environment. By examining Duggal's experience, we can learn how digital printing is eco-friendly, paving the way for a cleaner and healthier world for future generations.
Paper is a renewable resource:
Paper is a renewable resource and is cultivated and harvested like vegetables. There are more trees in the United States now than 100 years ago because more trees are planted each year than harvested. Duggal is proud to have planted 10,000 trees as part of the One Million Tree Challenge last year to aid these efforts.
Use of recycled paper:
Utilizing recycled paper is a significant step toward eco-friendly printing. Made from post-consumer waste, recycled paper reduces the need to cut down trees while conserving energy and water. Duggal stocks a variety of recycled paper options, making it easy to choose sustainable options for your printing needs.
Modern, innovative printers:
New printers often use VOC-free (Volatile Organic Compound) inks that do not harm the environment. All Duggal presses use VOC-free inks which have less of an impact on the air quality in the printing facilities.
Efficient ink usage:
Modern digital eco-friendly printers feature efficient ink usage systems that reduce the amount of ink needed for printing. Duggal's state-of-the-art printers have helped save considerable resources and reduced waste.
Modern printers are designed to be energy-efficient and use less electricity than traditional models. Installing these printers has helped reduce the carbon footprint of the printing industry. Duggal is proud to have a fleet of new energy-efficient digital presses that meet the highest standards for green printing.
As a more eco-friendly alternative to traditional printing methods, digital printing eliminates the need for plates, decreases ink usage, and reduces paper waste. Digital presses do not require make-ready sheets like conventional offset presses, which means significant paper savings on every project. All of Duggal's presses are fully digital, exemplifying this green approach.
Paper is biodegradable and recyclable. Duggal recycles 79% of its manufacturing waste, ensuring a cleaner environment.
Duggal produces work in the nation's only LEED Gold print production facility. This facility utilizes natural light, solar panels, and green roofs to help reduce energy usage and improve the air quality in the area. By implementing green infrastructure, printing companies can create a better working environment and decrease their carbon footprint.
At Duggal, we will continue with our commitment to sustainability by always embracing cutting-edge eco-friendly technologies, championing environmentally conscious initiatives, and pursuing green certifications.
