The dialogue around sustainable practices is gaining momentum in the commercial printing industry. I had the fortune to further investigate the topic for a recent episode of The Key Point Podcast, during which two leading UK commercial printers discussed their pioneering approaches to sustainability with me.


Guests with Insights on Sustainability

Philip Dodd, Managing Director at Healeys Printers, shares the journey of his company, a £4 million commercial printing firm in Ipswich, England, known for its high production quality and commitment to environmental responsibility. Under Dodd’s leadership, Healeys has become the first small/medium enterprise printer in the UK to have its carbon reduction plan approved by the Science Based Target initiative, moving towards net zero with innovative practices.


Anthony Rowell, Sales and Customer Success Director as well as Sustainability Lead at Tradeprint, discusses how sustainability intersects with operational efficiency at a £20 million commercial printer. Rowell covers initiatives ranging from reducing waste with effective color management to optimizing the supply chain for reduced carbon footprint.
