Mercian Zero is our commitment as a business to focus on our environmental impact and Corporate Social Responsibility.

The concept of sustainability is of growing importance to consumers, and there is a pressing need to create environmentally friendly products. How is Mercian Zero different and able to adopt a sustainable approach, that positively impacts on the environment?

> Substrates – Our Industry First 'Wood Film' material offers a sustainable and fully renewable alternative- that performs exactly as its plastic counterparts!

> Solvents – Our digital processes use no solvents, unlike offset, liquid toner or solvent based inkjet

> Zero to Landfill – all of our waste is converted to energy

> De-inking – our digitally printed labels are fully de-inkable during recycling, unlike suppliers using liquid toner

> Sustainable paper supplies – our self-adhesive paper labels are produced from recycled paper or from sustainable forests

> We specify recyclable plastics as a preference – such as Polypropylene for our synthetic labels. 

> We segregate waste on-site.

> Our digital toners are FDA foodsafe

> We use an ERP system designed to monitor any waste and to minimise our environmental impact

> We are happy to advise on the correct combinations of materials to maximise product recyclability
