We are grateful for the privilege to have served photographers and creators around the world for over 85 years! We also recognize the important responsibility we have to work now to reduce our environmental impact and improve sustainability standards, to help ensure all future generations of artists have the continued freedom to explore and create.
RENEWABLE ENERGY POWERED PRODUCTION
Our primary paper mill is powered by fully renewable hydroelectric generators. Since their installation, their generators have saved over one million barrels of fossil fuel and avoided the release of more than 700,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere.
SCRAP MATERIAL DONATIONS
While every effort is made to reduce waste and material damage during our production process, there is a small percentage of Savage background paper rolls that become unsellable due to imperfections or other issues. We work with local schools to donate this scrap material for craft and student projects.
Savage is proud to be a Videndum brand.
Videndum adopts technologies, materials and processes that ensure we minimize our impact on the environment and maximize our use of sustainable resources. Our initiatives cover energy efficiency, reducing carbon emissions, water use and waste; and sustainable use of materials, packaging and waste disposal.
