Duo goes over and above for the ozone

Duo goes over and above for the Ozone!

Under the Pollution Prevention and Control Regulations Act 2000, Duo has to monitor its emissions and provide a solvent management plan and report each year.

The target is set to ensure compliance and to reduce Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) concentration into our atmosphere. Duo's report for 2009, presented in May 2010, was gratefully received by the Regulatory & Enforcement Service as Duo had further reduced emissions from the previous year. The year ending 2008 showed emissions levels at 4.95% and in 2009 at an even lower 3.53%.

This achievement was thanks to the consistent and conscientious approach the Duo print team applies when dealing with solvents and inks when producing branded packaging. The acceptable threshold for Duo is 20% so we have overachieved the targets set. So it's a huge well for all of the team, keep up the good work!
