Ambitions

The Shift aide ses membres à utiliser le cadre international des Objectifs de développement durable de l'ONU pour définir leurs ambitions sociales.

6. Clean water and sanitation

Because water is one of the most vital natural resources for all life on Earth, the use of water is carefully followed at Artoos|Hayez. In an offset printing process the use of water is necessary. But by balancing our facilities minutely, we limit consumption to a minimum. .Our production activities generate only a small amount of wastewater. This wastewater is collected by a company specialized in waste and wastewater. We are a member of the Cooling Technology Institute which dedicates itself to prevention of water and air pollution and conservation of water.

9. Innovation and infrastructure

For many years, Artoos|Hayez has been working as a beta site for leading companies in the printing industry. We submit their innovations to practical tests in a real production environment. So our employees are contributing to the development of new technologies and products that bring advantage to the whole sector and to the environment

12. Responsible consumption and production

Since Artoos|Hayez was bitten by sustainability, we try as much as possible to convince customers, employees and other entrepreneurs to do the same. Our company has been 100% climate neutral since 2010. Within this commitment, we are constantly taking measures in order to reduce our ecological footprint. It is always a difficult exercise. We constantly strive to reduce our waste (especially waste paper, which is one of our KPIs), to reduce our water and energy consumption, etc. We like to work with suppliers who believe in circular economy. E.g. the manufacturer of our digital presses. If parts of the press malfunction, we can send them back to him. He revises the parts and makes them like new again. In terms of energy, we consciously choose 100% green energy from renewable sources. We can’t completely eliminate the use of chemicals in our production. But we use and store chemicals as little as possible and follow all innovations. When a more environmentally friendly product becomes available and if it turns out to be a good quality product and is economically justified at the same time, we go for it! Artoos|Hayez was the very first Belgian printer who was offering climate neutral printing (2010). By offering sustainable print services to the world and by promoting our eco-friendly actions, we help other organizations, companies and the government to achieve their environmental goals. Recycled paper, FSC and PEFC paper... It has long been perfectly normal for us.

13. Climate action

Artoos|Hayez signed the open letter in support of COP 21. By doing so, we show that we are committed to reduce our ecological footprint. We apply an environmental management system that meets the requirements of the international standard ISO 14001. This means that we constantly measure our environmental performance and try to improve it. Based on our measurements the German climate protection consultant Climate Partner calculates our ecological footprint - every year, since 2008. The CO2 emissions we can't avoid yet, are completely compensated by an annual investment in an officially recognized sustainable forest conservation project in Kenya.

15. Life on land

Artoos|Hayez supports a forest conservation project in Kenya:"REDD+". This project stands for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation.

13. Climate action

By signing the COP21 engagement letter, we commit to take voluntary action to reduce environmental and carbon footprints. We implement this by setting targets to reduce our current own GHG emissions and/or energy consumption, while also collaborating in supply chains and at sectorial levels. We agree on the need for inspirational and meaningful global action and aligned messaging. We will act as ambassadors for climate action, focusing on solutions and economic opportunities. We will help raise public awareness. We will actively manage climate risks and incorporate them in decision making — not least to realize growth opportunities. We will take steps to implement effective strategies to strengthen not only our companies’ but also societal resilience.
