It's our goal at CEWE to ensure that all the paper we use is FSC® certified by 2023, and we're almost there! More than 90% of our digital printing papers and almost 100% of photographic papers are currently FSC® certified. Wherever possible, we use recycled paper - such as for book covers. In addition, every CEWE PHOTOBOOK is produced and shipped in a climate-neutral manner.
Sustainability is our priority when it comes to raw materials. At CEWE, we use FSC® certified wood and paper. Our new 100% recycled paper has also been certified with a Blue Angel - a German environmental label awarded to particularly environmentally friendly products.
The CEWE PHOTOBOOK is designed to stay in great condition for years to come, so that it can be passed down from generation to generation. A long shelf life means the environment is spared and protected.
We keep production to a minimum. A CEWE photo product is only produced if an order was placed. In this way, we avoid creating waste, producing unnecessary emissions and we reduce the need for storage space.
All CEWE branded products are manufactured and shipped in a climate-neutral manner. We offset unavoidable CO₂ emissions from production by supporting the Kasigau Wildlife Corridor. For climate-neutral shipping, CEWE works with DHL GOGREEN.
We use 100% green electricity at all CEWE locations and we're certified to comply with ISO 50001 Energy Management standards. All of our larger production sites are certified with ISO 14001 Environmental Management standards, too.
The entire CEWE range is produced in Europe. The vast majority of orders from the UK and the Republic of Ireland are produced in our Warwick lab. Local production is not only kinder to the planet - it also avoids long transport routes, so you can look forward to shorter delivery times.
