Its been a memorable week here at Nationwide Print, as the whole team celebrated being crowned ‘Environmental Print Company of the Year’ at the prestigious PrintWeek Awards – known as ‘the Oscars of the print industry.’

Production Manager Matthew Pascoe attended the glittering ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on 22nd October, when he was presented with the trophy.

Managing Director Julian Hocking was jubilant on hearing the news, saying: “This is such a proud moment for me and my team. These awards are hugely competitive and for an SME like us to come out on top is a great achievement.”

He added: “About eight years ago we made a commitment to become the UK’s most environmentally-friendly printer. Today we can honestly say we have achieved that. Our unwavering commitment, and the bold investments we made along the way, have been ratified by this award.”

Julian took part in an Eden Project initiative, the Green Foundation, in 2010/11 which set Nationwide Print on an exciting new course.

His participation kick-started a series of bold investments in green technology and energy saving measures, included the installation of two large solar arrays, energy-efficient office lighting, exterior cladding, the purchase of a fully electric e-Golf and many other small-scale initiatives.

Despite housing a highly energy-intensive operation, our HQ is now a net-contributor to the grid, producing more energy annually than it uses.
