Environmental Policy & Certification
Longo was the first printing company in Italy to obtain certification documenting its use of carbon-neutral printing and the natureOffice process for producing carbon-neutral print products. Carbon-neutral printing is a clear commitment to taking corporate social responsibility and is therefore not only a cost-effective business process but also makes a contribution to conserving our environment – it adds value to any business and is an easy-to-action opportunity to play a proactive role in climate protection.
FSC® - Forest Stewardship Council® Certification
We print – mostly on paper. 20 percent of all trees worldwide are felled to produce paper. That’s one more reason to ensure that timber is therefore procured from certified, sustainable forestry sources. This certification is provided by the FSC®, an international, non-governmental umbrella organization. The objective of the FSC® is to guarantee the conservation of the world‘s forests by employing environmentally and socially compatible as well as economically sustainable husbandry methods.
ISO 9001 Certification
The launch of this QM system entails:
- an increase in business process transparency
- the achievement of higher levels of customer satisfaction
- a reduction in error rates and therefore costs.
ISO 14001 Certification
LONGO is conforming to international standards by adopting the ISO 14001: 2004 environmental management system, which helps our organization to minimize operations (processes, etc.) that negatively affect the environment, to comply with applicable laws, regulations, and other environmentally oriented requirements, and to continually improve in the above.
