Responsibility / Environmental Policy
VGL have been awarded BS ISO 14001:2004 for our environmental management system.

We know the best way for us to reduce our impact on the environment is to improve our products, our technology and our systems. We don’t make false claims or wave bogus flags. Instead, we continually strive to improve what we do in a quiet, assured manner. We’ve updated nearly all our digital equipment in recent years, ensuring the usage of more environmentally friendly ink systems and processes. We are constantly exploring new material options with our suppliers and partners.

For example, we have worked with suppliers and partners to explore new, greener options such as digital textiles. Printing with water-based dyes on a wide range of fabrics, digital textiles can reduce the carbon footprint of a given project. Lightweight and easy to handle, they are more energy-efficient to ship than other, heavier display systems. They are also 100% recyclable, while the dyes are harmless, odour free and produce no VOCs (volatile organic compounds).

We carefully control our waste streams, avoiding unnecessary wastage and recycling as much material as possible. We’ve also significantly reduced our carbon footprint by introducing energy-efficient equipment and company cars, and by improving our heating and insulation systems.

We appreciate ISO 14001 accreditation is just the start, but it’s a good one.
