The practice of environmental responsibility on the part of organizations is a very discussed subject in contemporary business management. The packaging sector keeps up adapting itself to the demands of this practice, which, naturally, are reflected in the entire supply chain, from raw material suppliers to wholesalers and retailers. Cliart is inserted in this chain, providing photopolymer plates and rendering specialized services to the graphic arts market; therefore, the company's management remains attentive to the change in customs related to environmental issues and, within its possibilities, has structured an action plan.
In one of the stages of plate making, known as washout, a chemical product is used to help in the removal of the layers not affected by light, during the engraving of the virgin plate. Aiming at the use of a purer system and at the improvement of the air quality that circulates in the engraving department, directors have realized studies, researches and negotiations with suppliers and, in spite of having increased costs, have chosen the change for a healthier and much less unhealthy product, which performs the same function of the previous one. The selective collect of plastic cups, the reuse of paper used in the company and other similar measures are also part of this plan.
