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, environmental sustainability and active social participation are core values that NUVO upholds.

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

  • Producing NUVO through an Ecologo ECP-58-94 Terrachoice Certified Printer (federal government standard) that is also Rainforest SmartWood Chain-of-Custody certified.
  • Printing NUVO with FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified paper products.
  • Reducing pre-press 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 re-using 75% of this liquid, with the remainder recycled commercially.
  • Recycling NUVO’s waste ink, paper materials and printing plates.

Business Practices
NUVO consistently strives to improve and promote socially and environmentally responsible initiatives.

  • Annually, our in-office recycle program diverts approximately 54 cubic yards of materials from a landfill back into usage—the equivalent of 19,000 litres of water, 46 trees, or 11,000 kilowatts of electricity.
  • NUVO has incorporated Mohawk Options paper for use in the corporate office. Mohawk Options is 100% FSC-certified paper and manufactured with renewable, non-polluting, wind-generated electricity.
