Polestar’s Sheffield plant has become the first printing company in the UK to gain a prestigious Scandinavian eco accreditation.
The Tinsley plant has secured Nordic Ecolabel Accreditation, awarded by the Nordic Council of Ministers to companies that meet the stringent environmental and climate criteria required to supply printed products into Scandinavia.Polestar’s bid was overseen by Tony Burke, a member of the new Polestar Graduate training scheme. He said: “It is really rewarding to be part of a company that is internationally recognised for its environmental policies.
“Nordic Ecolabel qualifications are second to none and to achieve the Ecolabel now allows Polestar Sheffield sales team to increase our potential market by selling approved printed products into Scandinavia.”
Polestar Sheffield’s managing director, Phil Boynes, added: “This is a great achievement, not only do we endeavour to print high quality and competitive gravure products but we now do this with the full endorsement of the Nordic Ecolabel.”
