Sustainability

Since its inception, NUVO has been committed to producing a high-quality magazine, in content and production. As an innovator in the magazine industry, NUVO upholds the core values of environmental sustainability.

Printing
NUVO is committed to working with our printing partner, Hemlock Printers, to remove virtually all aspects of environmental concern from the printing process and develop a system at the forefront of sustainable practices. This includes:

  • Producing NUVO through a printer who is certified FSC Chain-of-Custody and Green-e, carbon neutral in its operations, and ranked second in Canopy’s Blueline Ranking of North America’s top printers for engagement on forest conservation and support of next-generation paper fibre solutions
  • Printing NUVO with FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified paper products guided by the printer’s comprehensive Ancient and Endangered Forest Purchasing Policy
  • Reducing prepress waste (film and attendant chemicals) by using our printer’s CTP (Computer To Plate) system
  • Utilizing alcohol-free presses with an environmentally friendly alcohol substitute and etch material
  • Recycling blanket wash fluid and reusing 50 per cent of this liquid, with the remainder undergoing wastewater treatment
  • Recycling NUVO’s work-in-process paper materials and printing plates

Business Practices
NUVO follows and engages with environmentally and socially responsible initiatives. Our in-office recycling program diverts materials from the landfill back into reuse. NUVO uses Mohawk Options paper that is 100 per cent FSC-certified and manufactured with renewable, nonpolluting, wind-generated electricity.
