Environment – Snel

OUR COMMITMENT
to the planet

Today, the planet needs us to protect and preserve it more than ever before. At Snel, it seemed obvious that we needed to adapt: paper from sustainable forests (PEFC, FSC), more eco-friendly products, recycling, etc.

FSC CERTIFICATION

Certificate no. SGSCH-COC-004274, Forest Stewardship Council

Snel is FSC certified. This label ensures that the products come from forests that are responsibly and sustainably managed.

 

PEFC CERTIFICATION

Certificate no. CH12/0435, Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification

Like the FSC, the PEFC certification certifies that the paper being used comes from a forest that is managed in a sustainable manner, and that it complies with ecological, economic, social and ethical standards.

Almost all of our papers are certified by one organisation (FSC/PEFC).

IMPRIM’VERT CERTIFICATION

Snel is also IMPRIM’VERT-certified. This certification, which is recognised by everyone in the graphics industry, speaks to a shared desire to reduce the environmental impact of printing activities

CO2 NEUTRAL

Snel is among the companies that calculate, reduce and offset their environmental impact (manufacturing, transport and installation).

RECYCLING & ADAPTED PRODUCTS

Snel has also adapted products that are used in this way in its work :

  • Recycling used sheets and ink residue.
  • Disposal of paper waste via suction for compacting and recycling by agreed-upon entities, so that it can be reintegrated into the manufacturing circuit of paper-makers.
  • Recovery of hot air, which is produced by the machines, to heat the workshop.
