When you use PrimeNet, you’re “Going Green”
Making Green a Primary Color® is PrimeNet’s corporate initiative to incorporate eco-friendly print and mailing practices and maintaining an eco-friendly workplace. Here are a few ways we are committed to environment-friendly practices.
Printing that is easy on the environment
PrimeNet uses recycled paper for all offset print presses, XEROX laser printers and office printers/copiers. We apply soy based inks for our offset presses, wash-up process and water compatible ink jet inks. Our direct to plate technology in pre-press has eliminated silver in our waste stream.
The transport of material in our plant is by forklifts now transitioned from gas to battery power. Plus, we recycle: all LaserJet print canisters; all wood pallets, all paper waste; and all offset press plates.
We hold down energy costs and maintain a clean environment
Energy we save helps the environment and keeps our costs and pricing competitive. PrimeNet monitors electrical consumption and conducts energy audits to ensure usage is flat or down. All office computers, lap tops and copy machines are shut off each evening for energy efficiency and savings. We’ve installed automatic shut-off light switches in all common areas, cafeterias and private offices.
Our AC filter program ensures all AC units are running at maximum efficiency and all facility thermostats are set at a constant temperature of 74 degrees and 80 degrees in off hours. All air conditioners have been updated or replaced to higher SEER ratings to improve energy efficiency and savings. We’re monitoring our energy use and looking for ways to be careful energy users.
