  • Caring About Our Environment

    At Vivid we care about our environment. So much so, that we have committed to doing the best we can for the environment by becoming ISO 14001 registered.

    In particular we are committed to the compliance with relevant environmental legalisation and to the adoption to practices and procedures that reduce the risk of environmental damage or harm.

    To achieve this we have undertaken to implement and maintain an Environmental Management System, which enables us to:

    • Control the waste streams arising from our activities including their minimisation and proper storage and disposal.
    • Monitor and where possible reduce use of natural resources including packaging materials and energy.
    • Seek to be efficient in our use of transport resources.
    • Where practicable encourage our suppliers and subcontractors to strengthen their own environmental performance and goals. 
    • Ensure our staff members are adequately and appropriately trained with regard to environmental matters.
    • Set and monitor progress towards environmental objectives and targets such that we might achieve continual improvement in our overall environmental management performance.

    A copy of our ISO 14001 certification can be downloaded here.

This is very important to us at Vivid, both in supporting our Company Ethics with regards to caring for the environment, but also to build a legacy that proves our commitments and Company success for years to come.

  • Associations - British Printing Society

    The British Printing Society was founded in 1944 by a Bristol printer, William R. Brace. He visualised an organisation which would enable printers to exchange views and experiences, pass on hints and tips, and generally promote a spirit of craftsmanship and friendliness. Although the British Printing Society (BPS) is now bigger than in those early years, its activities show that those ideals have not been forgotten.
