As a leading print communications producer in New Zealand, we recognize our responsibility to the environment. We are deeply committed to best practices in sustainability and environmental stewardship. To this end, we maintain certifications in FSC, Toitū, and PEFC environmental management systems.
At Brebner Print and within the broader Blue Star Group, we are dedicated to fostering a stronger community and preserving our environment through sustainable initiatives. In a bid to reduce waste in a light-hearted and constructive manner, we regularly donate paper cut-offs to local schools and kindergartens, supporting their educational and creative endeavours.
Our environmental credentials include:
Toitū Enviromark Gold Certification
In late 2018, Brebner Print and the Blue Star embarked on the three-step journey towards Toitū enviromark gold certification – the first major multi-site print and marketing company in New Zealand to do so. For Blue Star, achieving this is about accountability.
We have taken a logical and systematic approach to our environmental management systems and are proud to say 100% of our sites are now Toitū enviromark gold certified.
Forest Stewardship Council® Chain of Custody Certification
FSC® is a non-governmental organisation that promotes the responsible management of the world’s forests. Our FSC Chain of Custody certification allows our customers to use the FSC logo on the products we print for them.
Blue Star was the first New Zealand print business to receive FSC multi-site certification in 2007.
Forest Certification™ Chain of Custody Certification
The Program for Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) is an international non-profit organisation dedicated to sustainable forest management. Our PEFC Chain of Custody certification allows our customers to use the PEFC logo on the products we print for them.
But it’s no good to say we’re doing our bit if the rest of the supply chain isn’t as committed as we are, which is why we only partner with like minded suppliers in our network. All our key suppliers are ISO14001 certified and we encourage all suppliers in our supply program to demonstrate sustainable sourcing practices.
Within our the wider Bluestar group.
HACCP and GMP Food Safety Management Certification
Blue Star Wellington are HACCP and GMP Food Safety Management certified which represents another major step on our packaging journey and allows us to manufacture paper and board based packaging solutions for use in the food industry.
This provides the assurance that the printed product is produced in a clean, hygienic and monitored working environment, which meets world class standards for the food and packaging industry.
