Leading the way with sustainability in print
At All Things business we are proud to lead the way with sustainability in print. We are fully committed to building a sustainable business for our employees, customers, and communities. We believe that sustainability is about doing business without negatively impacting the environment or society as a whole. That’s why we have and are continuing to take steps to protect our planet and fight climate change.
Sustainable business magazine
As one of the fastest-growing independent publishing companies in the UK, we are also proud to be one of the greenest. Here are some of the eco-friendly initiatives we’re involved in as a business.
Each month, thousands of copies of our publication are mailed out to businesses across London, Northamptonshire, Milton Keynes and Bedfordshire in Paperwrap. The perfect alternative to the industry standard polywrap bags. Not only is Paperwrap fully recyclable itself, it’s produced using 100% recycled paper, so it’s the perfect alternative to single-use plastics. As a result, we are able to save 60kg of plastic from going into landfill.
Our business can take us to all parts of the UK, so travel is inevitable. But, where they’re not absolutely necessary, we keep journeys to a minimum. A number of our team work from home on a regular basis and, for others, we have agreed work-from-home days and on top of that, try to be as flexible as we can.
Supporting the Local Economy
Local suppliers are good for business, and we try to use them wherever possible. Not only does that minimise travel time, whether for meetings or deliveries, but it also helps to support our local economies. Being close to our suppliers and customers makes it easier to build strong business relationships from which everyone benefits.
“A few copies of our publication came into our office and it made me conscious of the amount of waste plastic we were generating. And that was just a few copies, out of the thousands we send out, so it made me investigate the options.
“Our printers suggested Paperwrap and they tell me that ours was the first publication to use it in the UK. I am not sure if that’s still the case, I hope it isn’t and that more have followed suit, but we’re proud to lead the way.”
