At Sun Industries we prioritise social sustainability by promoting responsible ink usage in our printing processes. Our printers are designed to offer low ink and energy consumption, ensuring efficiency while minimising environmental impact. Additionally, we use inks that are GREENGUARD Gold Certified, meeting stringent chemical emission standards.
The GREENGUARD Certification Program requires that products meet some of the world’s most rigorous standards for low emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) for indoor environments.
The highest level is GREENGUARD GOLD, which sets stricter certification criteria that take account of safety factors to consider in the case of sensitive individuals (such as children and the elderly) and ensures that a product is acceptable for use in environments such as schools and healthcare facilities.
