Environmental Healthcheck

Home / Membership Services / Environment / Environmental Healthcheck

All printers want to pride themselves on their environmental management, but few measure themselves objectively and even fewer carry out independent reviews of their environmental management. The BPIF Seal of Excellence Environmental Audit is a quick, easy and [for Platinum members] free, review of your current processes, that gives you a clear work-to list of actions to improve, where gaps have been identified.

The BPIF Adviser will take you through a series of specific detailed questions about current practice on topics such as: Internal Communications, Training, Emissions to Air, Discharges to Water, Waste, Producer Responsibility, Resource Efficiency, etc. The questions are based on the legal requirements and best practice for the printing industry. 

The Audit is delivered in half a day starting with a site tour of the premises to assess the layout of the organisation and familiarise themselves, with the organisation’s processes. After this a review of specific documentation will take place. A detailed report will be sent to you highlighting any issues that have been identified and need addressing. It will also provide you with information on how to tackle these non conformities.
