Our dedication to producing printed materials in an environmentally friendly facility spurred us to build the first purpose-built LEED Gold Certified Printing complex in South East Asia. The carbon status of the facility has also been assessed.
In business for more than 55 years, Aitken Spence Printing not only strives to be a high-quality printing services provider to its clients, we also pride ourselves on being good corporate citizens. We are continuously striving to find sustainable resources and more efficient technology, new processes and procedures, and participating in a variety of environmental initiatives in order to promote and support sustainability in the printing industry in partnership with our suppliers, vendors, clients, and employees.
Sustainability initiatives are monitored and directed by the Sustainability Sub Committee which includes members from senior Management and a mix of employees from other areas of the business. This dedicated interdepartmental team is tasked with researching and implementing sustainable initiatives for both the company and the employees
Aitken Spence Printing & Packaging’s new print factory is located at Mawaramandiya, eight kilometers from Kiribathgoda and x kilometers from Colombo. Built on 3.5 acres of land, this 100,000 square feet complex is one of the best laid out factories in the country. In terms of environmental impact, one of the key elements is that it has been built along the lines of the green concept and is a LEED Gold certified factory. The factory has an effective built-in work flow, reducing down time and will see the production of 400 tonnes of material monthly.
We are constantly testing new products in an effort to achieve the least environmental impact possible without sacrificing quality. Some noteworthy initiatives are to:
A few of our recent successfully completed CSR projects:
‘Everything that we need for our survival and well-being depends, either directly or indirectly, on our natural environment’.
‘Sustainability creates and maintains the conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony, thereby fulfilling the social, economic and other requirements of present and future generations.’
In line with these principles, Aitken Spence Printing has identified ‘Sustainable Product & Process development’ as one of key strategic attributes for success of next generation manufacturing.
