Green Business Awards 2008: Best Business Services Company - Winner DG3 Europe

DG3 Europe, the European division of global print and communications group DG3, aims to put environmental responsibility at the heart of its business strategy.

In the past year, the company has focused on obtaining environmental accreditations, motivating its 173 staff to embrace the green agenda. DG3 has also invested in cleaner equipment and has taken steps to persuade clients to adopt environmentally friendly printing techniques. The judges were particularly impressed by the range of quantitative targets set for environmental improvement and by DG3's engagement with clients, showing how companies can exercise influence not only up the supply chain but down it too.

UK-based DG3 Europe has made great efforts to re-engineer its environmental strategy and position itself as a sustainable leader in the business services sector. As a specialist provider of 'end-to-end communications solutions', printing documents is a central part of DG3's activities and of its environmental programme.

In 2007, DG3 Europe purchased a new computer-to-plate (CTP) printing system that reduced plate-room chemical consumption by 85%. It cut overall solvent use by 18% in 2007-8, and from September 2007 the CTP system began using vegetable-based inks.
