Kwik Kopy, Printing and the Environment

At Kwik Kopy Australia, we are proud to announce that all our centres have achieved the Sustainable Green Print (SGP) certification from the Visual Media Association (VMA). This milestone underscores our unwavering commitment to environmental sustainability and responsible business practices.

Our Commitment to Sustainability

Achieving SGP certification is a testament to our dedication to reducing our environmental impact and promoting sustainable practices across our operations. The SGP program provides a framework for environmental best practices in the printing industry, focusing on:


  • Standard Environmental Profiles:
    Establishing industry-specific environmental standards.
  • Control Measures:
    Implementing measures to cover acceptable risk levels.
  • Essential Documents:
    Providing templated documents tailored for business use.
  • Key Performance Indicators:
    Setting industry-specific KPIs for evaluation.
  • Flexibility:
    Allowing businesses to achieve environmental management and certification at their own pace.
  • Continuous Improvement:
    Encouraging a stepped approach to ongoing enhancement.
  • Increased Responsibility:
    Promoting greater environmental responsibility and leadership within the industry.

SGP is aligned with international standards and tailored to meet the needs of businesses and brands, ensuring an accurate and product-specific industry standard. It helps reduce waste, improve environmental footprints, and provides a verified green competitive edge.

Environmental Statement

At Kwik Kopy, we recognise that businesses have a significant impact on environmental sustainability. Through the way we conduct our business, engage with our workforce, and advise our clients, we have the opportunity to both influence and implement behavioural change.

We see environmental sustainability as an integral part of our business strategy. It is a challenging issue that requires ongoing review and development, and the argument for change is morally and commercially compelling.

While actions are far more robust than policies, we are committed to continually developing and implementing programs to:

Promote and enforce legal compliance within our organisation

Audit our current practices and behaviours.

Recycle our waste and safely dispose of chemicals used within the print process.

Reduce our water consumption and manage our waste responsibly.

Reduce our water consumption and manage our waste responsibly. Measure and reduce our energy consumption.

Convert to accredited renewable energy suppliers.

Manage our supply chain to minimise their environmental impact.

Offer carbon offset options to our clients and franchisees.

Train, incentivise, and reward our workforce to help them implement change.

Develop ‘best practice’ buying advice for our clients.

Our industry has embraced the need to adopt an environmental sustainability program, and we will continue to work with the Visual Media Association to utilise their experience and knowledge fully.

Environmental Leadership

Kwik Kopy takes sustainability seriously, and it is an integral part of our identity. As trailblazing sustainability leaders within the Australian print industry, we have driven the initiative towards greener print practices, becoming the first franchise group to attain SGP certification. We understand our operations’ impact on the environment and actively seek ways to reduce our carbon footprint. Recognising the importance of sustainability, we believe that businesses have a significant role in promoting sustainability and setting a precedent for others to follow towards a greener future.

What This Means for Our Customers:

Our SGP certification ensures that when you choose Kwik Kopy, you are partnering with a company that prioritises sustainability and environmental responsibility. Our practices not only help protect the planet but also provide you with high-quality products and services that are produced responsibly.

Looking Ahead:

As we continue to innovate and grow, we remain committed to continuing to evolve our sustainability achievements. We will regularly review and improve our practices to ensure that we not only meet but exceed the standards set by the SGP certification. 

Two possible comments could include:

  • Whilst proud of our 100% level one status across our Centres, we continue to focus on the opportunity to grow from level 1 to 2, 3, and beyond. Continuing to evolve and grow our commitment to environmental excellence.
    We are now working to expand our supply chain partnerships and apply consideration to their environmental commitments ensuring their commitments align with ours.


Thank you for supporting Kwik Kopy Australia. Together, we can significantly impact the environment while delivering exceptional results for your business.
