Green Credentials

We’re environmentally conscious. We take action to minimise our waste and recycle our waste products; ethically and responsibly.

Through continual research, we seek and find new products and innovative manufacturing processes; implementing energy saving efficiencies, removing potential waste and harmful processes affecting the environment.

Southern Colour adheres to all current governing laws and regulations set down by the State and Federal Governments in relation to Environmental and Conservation acts.

We are active in ensuring all our disposable waste materials are disposed of in accordance to those laws. Regular audits are carried out on the companies we use to ensure they follow the strict guidelines set out by these laws.

Vegetable based low VOC* and VOC free inks are used and all of our paper waste material is recycled. As a result, our factory and current printing processes are some of the most environmentally friendly on the market today.

The 1125 solar panels on
our roof create 360 kw of
