Think Green

 
We at The Actuary are dedicated to ensuring that our environmental impact remains as small as possible. Details of the measures that we are taking to achieve this can be found below.

 

Paper and printing:

The Actuary’s printer, Wyndeham Group, operates an environmental management system which has been assessed as conforming to ISO 14001:2004 standards. Wyndham has also previously been crowned Magazine Printing Company of the year at the PPA Production and Environment Awards.

The paper used for the production of The Actuary is sourced from a mill operating a certified environmental management system and holding third party audited chain of custody certification, with pulp originating from responsibly managed forests and controlled sources.

More information on what Wyndham Group is doing to limit its impact on the environment and reduce the cartoon footprint related to its manufacturing can be found here

 


Polywrap:

The polywrap used to distribute The Actuary is not biodegradable; furthermore, no commercially practical alternative is currently marketed and paper envelopes are prohibitively expensive. 

However, we are acutely aware that clients want the least environmentally damaging form of magazine distribution possible, and to this end we check the market routinely to ensure that no newly introduced option is overlooked.
