At NWN Media we are committed to addressing the key environmental impacts of printing and the production process, and preserving the environment for future generations. Our environmental policy is achieved through continuous monitoring, annual targets and action plans.
The sourcing of newsprint is a major environmental concern for publishers and we at NWN Media source our newsprint from UPM Kymmene in Deeside, utilising their 100% recycled paper, which is produced as a natural, renewable and recyclable fibre from sustainable, responsibly managed forests. UPM is committed to forest management and forest harvesting practices based on the internationally accepted principles of sustainable forest management.
UPM Kymmene is just a mile from the press site, which also keeps carbon footprint to a minimum in the obtaining of our paper. All newsprint waste is taken back to UPM's site and fully recycled.
NWN Media publishes a portfolio of daily and weekly publications and a series of up to the minute, interactive websites. Combined, the group reaches an audience of almost a million people every week. Included within the group's portfolio is the oldest weekly newspaper in Wales and some of the newest, technology–driven websites in the UK.
