Our Sustainability Story.


Working towards a greener future, Novograf has been an eco-friendly pioneer in the printing industry. Striving for best in class, we prioritise waste reduction from order raising to completed installation.

  • In 2004, Novograf was one of the first industrial graphics companies to be awarded the internationally renowned standard ISO14001.
  • Our ‘Lean’ manufacturing approach has resulted in less than 0.57% wastage in the last 12 months.
  • All cardboard packaging is either re-used or recycled, wooden pallets are reground for re-use, and our PVC-free packaging is fully recyclable.
  • Solar panels installed on our factory roof mean we are self-sufficient in energy for ¾ of the year.
  • Novograf has already met the target protocol for 2025 set by the Scottish Government of zero waste to landfill.
  • Our print equipment uses UV Led low energy curing and VOC-free inks.
  • Polyester products are 100% recycled and recyclable!

Waste Reduction Practices

Our manufacturing approach has always been to remove waste, both process and product.  We seek the most efficient method of manufacture, governed by our customer’s design, to maximise material usage and minimise wastage.  Offcuts from clever nesting techniques are kept and used elsewhere.

Questioning and challenging methodologies and practices, we strive to “make right, first time.”


Refurbishment and Re-use

All of our product ranges contain environmental performance and recycling/refurbishment benefits.

The journey towards Net-Zero is supported by our ability to offer our customers options to conserve and extend the life of existing wall panels, doors, counters etc. Changing the colour and brand design no longer means throw out and replace with new.  Good news for the environment and the budget!

Our material does not need to be removed when designs change – we can just go over the top with a fresh layer of material.
