Choose a Sustainable Printing Manufacturer
Sustainability forms the backbone of everything we do.
Ebi Integrity is designed to keep us honest.
Ebi is a certified carbon neutral manufacturer and we are committed to making a positive difference, with sustainable products made from lower carbon impact materials, processes and a wide range of recyclable options.
Delivering the Carbon Positive Products of Tomorrow
Ebi’s operational carbon footprint is 64% lower than the industry average (2021), but we are determined not to stop there. In 2022 we are reducing our carbon impact by 40%, along with making our operations carbon neutral and working with CarbonQuota on our Net Zero Pathway, to measure, reduce and independently certify our Operational Carbon Footprint.
“We must all commit to doing more and our Integrity programme is doing just that. We continue to reduce our CO2 year on year and now, we are taking our operations carbon neutral. In 2021, our direct operations had a certified measured carbon footprint of 247 TCO2e, much lower than the industry’s average – and in 2022 we plan to reduce that significantly. We also support our client partners with a range of services to provide products with market-leading sustainable integrity. We are proud to produce these products as a carbon neutral business. ”

Protecting the Planet
Here is a snapshot of how Ebi Integrity is making
an immediate positive impact on our planet:
Our Ebi fleet has transitioned to full electric or hybrid vehicles
In the past five years our PP5 plastic recycling scheme recycled 347 tonnes – that’s the equivalent of almost 30 double decker buses!
Our lower impact printing production is fuelled by 100% clean green energy
All the products we produce in our carbon neutral operations can be carbon measured, offset and made climate positive in-line with UN Sustainable Development Goals
We will reduce our carbon emissions by 40% in 2022, saving over 100 tonnes CO2 – the equivalent to boiling a kettle nearly 1,500,000 times!
We are committed to making a difference by designing more green print products made from lower impact materials and processes
We use paper, card and carton board certified by the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®), an international organisation dedicated to responsible forest management and timber use. This strictly audited process is more than just a slip of paper – it’s a multi-step commitment to protecting the world’s forests with real, quantifiable action.
Deliver green print products with sustainable integrity and create climate-positive campaigns
The world’s carbon emissions are increasing at an alarming rate. Committing to a Net Zero Pathway by measuring, reducing and becoming carbon neutral is a powerful weapon in the fight against climate change.
Ebi Integrity Services:
Understand the true impact your activity is having on the planet. This is the process in which we calculate the carbon footprint of your products or campaign.
Whilst we can not reduce the effects of emissions that we have already made, we can reduce its impact on the environment through offsetting via verified schemes such as Gold Standard. Which leads directly to the reduction or removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
Go Climate Positive
Double your carbon offsetting to create a climate-positive certified product or campaign.
Ebi Integrity is a supporter of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. In 2015, 193 world leaders developed and adopted the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals with the aim of tackling poverty, inequality, and climate change by 2030. In line with these goals, Ebi Integrity is invested in our Net Zero Pathway by committing to a plan of decarbonisation. We measure, reduce and then offset any residual carbon emissions.

Choosing sustainable and recyclable print solutions, supporting lower carbon impact schemes and projects and taking your own business carbon neutral is a choice that can pay off – not just for our planet, but for your business too.
Products created using lower carbon impact processes see no reduction in quality, durability or longevity, and there is only a minimal impact to cost of production.
The impact of sustainability on brand reputation is huge.

Schemes We Support
Along with our own internal efforts to deliver lower carbon impact
print solutions, we also support schemes protecting our planet.
Once your product campaign is offset and certified, product labelling can be used to communicate the sustainable integrity of your product or campaign to your customers.
We cannot reverse our effect on the environment - but we can offset it. Carbon offsetting comes not just with benefits to our planet, but also with local, social and biodiversity benefits that matter to your customers.
Carbon offsetting is a catch-all phrase, which means that it is often incorrectly used to refer to schemes which are not certified. For example, many tree-planting schemes lack independent verification that confirms they are truly carbon neutral.
Tree Planting and Re-wilding Schemes
Tree planting schemes are vital in helping to prevent the potential breakdown of nature and revive biodiversity. However, these schemes are usually not considered carbon neutral in the short term as it can take decades for a new tree to begin to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. In many ways these schemes are a gift for the next generation.
Forest Preservation Schemes
A forest the size of the UK is lost every year (Climate Focus) - and the destruction is accelerating.
Forest preservation schemes are rarely considered carbon offsetting as they do not reverse carbon emissions. However, these schemes are crucial in preserving existing biodiversity on our planet. Take action by working with a locally established charity to preserve forests in your area and making sure your print provider uses FSC®-certified paper and board.
Projects We Support
As part of our ongoing commitment to taking part in sustainability
projects all over the world, Ebi Integrity supports the following projects:
The Wind Energy Project
The innovative Wind Energy project was developed by Vish Wind Infrastructure LLP (“VWIL”), an independent power producer owned by the promoters of Wind World (India) Ltd. This project reduces approximately 101,234 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year, and has reached over 5000 households in Gujarat.
Pacajai REDD Project
Brazil, South America
The Amazon’s ecosystems play a critical role in stabilising the climate and providing food, water and vital medicines for people all over the world, but despite this, the Brazilian rainforests are at risk due to illegal logging.
The Pacajai project owns and protects almost 150,000 ha of High Conservation Value rainforest - an area almost the size of London. Project partners work in trusted partnership with over 6,200 Ribeirinhos river people that live and work within the project area.
Panama, South America
The Tropical Mix project aims to restore a healthy forest ecosystem by reforesting degraded land with mostly native tree species, creating sustainable timber production and cocoa cultivation.
Tropical Mix has been one of the first in line to be successfully certified under the renowned Gold Standard for land use and forestry projects, has received FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®) certification, and produces UTZ and EU organic-certified cocoa.
