Our commitment to our environment
As we are based in beautiful Cornwall, with the ocean right on our doorstep, as individuals and as a TJ Books team, we are totally committed to limiting damage to our surroundings, and always focused on preserving the local and global environment that we are so fortunate to inhabit.
Our Compliance Manager Sam Ellacott is our daily conscience, leading an ongoing audit of our materials and our processes, ensuring that we are continually at the forefront, and future facing, in our mission to be an environmentally-friendly print operation.
It’s simply a no-brainer that we are Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) accredited and we will never buy any paper that is not FSC approved. FSC certification gives us the option to choose paper that has been sourced in an environmentally-friendly, socially responsible and economically viable manner. Using papers with the FSC’s “tick tree” logo means we are buying paper with confidence, safe in the knowledge that we, and our customers, are helping to ensure our forests are alive for generations to come.
TJ Books is also utterly committed to recycling 100% of our production waste, including all plastic, paper and cardboard, and Sam religiously monitors our waste on a monthly basis to ensure we are continuing to fulfil this. Our paper waste is also split into different streams across our operation to enable easier, and more efficient, recycling. We are also constantly looking at new and alternative ways of reducing our plastic consumption as much as possible.
TJ Books is ISO 14001 accredited, meaning we adhere to a family of standards related to environmental management that exists to help organisations like us minimise how our operations could negatively affect the environment. To reduce or remove any potential damages, and to continually strive towards recognised and regulated improvements, we comply with the applicable ISO 14001 laws, regulations, and other environmentally oriented requirements across all sections of our extensive business operations.
