About Colortec Creative
Colortec Creative Print Solutions is more than just a printing company. With over 30 years of business, Colortec has evolved and grown with the current economic climate while maintaining a high level of performance and high-quality printing.
Going Climate Smart
As a family-run business, Colortec always strives to exceed their clients’ needs in a sustainable way. In order to create a competitive advantage for their business and ensure a high level of social responsibility, Colortec joined Climate Smart in 2014 to measure and manage their carbon footprint.
Over the years, Colortec has undertaken several reduction strategies resulting in impressive cost savings, and a 64% GHG reduction compared to their baseline year.
Colortec has seen an especially impressive amount of GHG reductions from a number of equipment upgrades and changes. For example, Colortec retired a natural gas-powered dryer in 2018, reducing their natural gas use by 64%. Equally impressive, Colortec eliminated fuel emissions from their heavy equipment by switching their propane forklift to electric.
In 2017, Colortec made the decision to switch from their traditional screen-printing roots to fully digital, replacing their old screen press and large electric dryer with a new energy-efficient LED UV digital press, contributing to a reduction in electricity consumption by 46%.
