OUR COMMITMENT TO THE FUTURE
FSC® & Carbon Balancing
Lakeside Printing strives to improve on its already strong environmental credentials. We only use FSC® chain of custody certified paper in our products.
The FSC® certification is considered the “gold standard” designation for wood harvested from forests that are responsibly managed, socially beneficial, environmentally conscious, and economically viable.
We don’t just stop there. Lakeside Printing are also supporters of a carbon offsetting initiative called Carbon Balanced Paper. This initiative offsets the unavoidable carbon emissions generated during the paper making process through partnership with World Land Trust. All papers work through us are available on Carbon Balanced paper.

in our dna
We’re big on printing green because we all have a stake in this planet and it’s important to protect it. We’re constantly fine tuning our operation to become as efficient as possible. That means declaring war on waste. Lets face it, waste isn’t just bad for the environment; it costs money and time as well and all three of these elements are precious.
Being green isn’t about matching this regulation or getting that certification as proof of our environmental efforts. It’s about going beyond this, instilling our passion for the environment into everything we do.
Less is more
It is our responsibility to promote smart printing which means encouraging you, our customers, to order what you need, when you need it and no more.
With the unit price decreasing the more print you order, it can seem like a good idea to go for extra. Until you end up with a Hyde’s forest worth of outdated leaflets sat in your storeroom.
Our digital printing is quick, easy and cost effective so why take the risk of raising your carbon footprint on something that can be easily avoided?
