PRINT AND PAPER PRODUCTS
Queensland X-Ray chooses to use environmentally green products wherever we can in our print and paper products.
Our Report Paper and Referral Pads are printed on paper that carries the following environmental credentials:
PEFC – Programme for the Endorsement Forrest Certification, provides a framework for the development of and international recognition of national forest certification schemes that have been developed locally.
Sustainable Forests - Paper has been derived from resources managed to ensure renewability and preserve natural ecosystems for generations to come.
EMS (Environmental Management Systems) – External certification for paper mills and continual monitoring of key environmental factors.
ECF – (Elemental Chlorine Free) – Pulp is bleached without Elemental Chlorine which is difficult to filter and harmful to the environment.
In addition, our stationery supplier carries the Forest Stewardship Council Certification.
Other products that we print will carry environmental credentials wherever possible including:
