Cutting back on emissions-creating resources makes good financial sense for Auckland printer.

Adding up the benefits of climate action

Soar Printing is a family-owned printing business based in Auckland. While they’ve grown over the past decade, they’ve also slashed their emissions by more than half – and they’ve saved money in the process.

Clear financial guidelines have helped Soar achieve these changes. So has a lean manufacturing approach, which is about cutting waste to save money. As a result, energy efficiency and waste reduction are key when upgrading equipment and vehicles.

For example, a new printing press has cut emissions and saved over $125,000 in power and paper each year. And switching to more efficient vehicles has saved about $30,000 a year in fuel.

“Cutting back on resources that create emissions makes good financial sense,” says Jenny Carter, Financial Director. “It helps the long-term sustainability of the business. It’s easier to stay competitive, to invest in energy-efficient equipment, and to pay your staff at least the minimum wage. You can also give back to the community.”
