Century gains FSC accreditation


Cornish printing company Century Litho has  been awarded the Forest Steward Council (FSC) and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) accreditation.

These internationally recognised green credentials confirm the company’s mission to provide an eco-friendly print solution for its clients. 

On recognising a growing demand for a more sustainable product, Century Litho launched a push for the credentials and now the company joins a growing number of printers to boast the distinctive tree tick logo.

The FSC recognition signifies that the printer can trace its paper supply back to sustainable forests and guarantee that it has been produced in the most environmentally friendly process and recycled wherever possible.

The Redruth-based printer, which currently employs around 65 people, prints a wide spectrum of material, from brochures and leaflets to magazines. 

Managing director, Peter Hesketh, said: “Century has always been eager to ensure that clients get the best possible service in every way and our desire to protect the quality of our own environment – particularly given how dependant we are upon it in this part of the world, means that we will continue to strive to reduce our environmental impact at every opportunity.”
