Our green printing credentials
We take our environmental printing responsibilities very seriously here.To ensure we're at the forefront of ethical and sustainable development in the printing industry, Mystique engages with a number of environmental bodies and initiatives.
Forest Stewardship Council(FSC)
An international network for the promotion of responsible forest management, the FSC seeks to strike a sustainable balance between the environment, social wellbeing and economic viability. As a member of the FSC, Mystique has access to information that helps us avoid illegally harvested or genetically modified wood products from areas of significant social conflict and high conservation value forests. To see how you can makegreen printing choices, take a look at our Sustainable Paper page.
National Carbon Offset Standard Carbon Neutral Program
Established in 2010, the National Carbon Offset Standard (NCOS) defines what a voluntary carbon offset is and the requirements an organisation must meet to be considered carbon neutral. If an organisation meets these requirements, they can be granted carbon neutral certification under the NCOS Carbon Neutral Program. At a time when false environmental claims are used to market goods and services, consumers can be confident that organisations certified by the NCOS Carbon Neutral Program are genuinely making a difference. Mystique is the first and only Australian printer to gain carbon neutral certification.
The average Australian uses over 100 litres of water in a single shower, meanwhile Mystique's printing presses only use 10 litres of water per 8 hour shift.
