Our Vision

Our vision is to be the most sustainable digital printing brand in New Zealand.
Sustainability is a journey and we are committed to continuously improving our sustainability practices until we achieve this.
We focus on three sustainability pillars – our people, our community, and our environment.
To help us share the journey we are on, we produce an annual sustainability report.

Sustainability Report


We work across our business to lessen our environmental impact and focus on reducing, reusing, and recycling. Our environmental management system (EMS) is independently audited by Toitū Envirocare yearly, and we are a Toitū Enviromark Gold certified business.
A key focus for us is emissions reduction. We are proud to be a Toitū carbonzero certified business! Our carbon reduction programme involves measuring, managing, reducing, and offsetting our carbon emissions.
Everything makes a difference, whether that be changing the way we process customer work, implementing product innovations or investing in new technology.
We encourage customers to move to multi-use products where appropriate and work with our suppliers to reduce or reuse items like packaging, as this makes a significant difference to the waste our business generates. As a result, as of EOFY 2021, only 17% of our total waste ends up in landfill.
We actively recycle a large amount of materials, including plastics, glass, cardboard, and paper.

Toitū carbonzero

We are committed to carbon neutrality and recognise our role in reducing New Zealand’s carbon footprint.

Carbon reduction is a key part of our sustainability journey. As a Toitū carbonzero certified business we actively measure, manage and offset our carbon emissions, work towards emissions reduction and are audited to the International Standard for Carbon Reduction ISO 14064-1.
Carbon reduction can be complicated! If you’re interested in learning more about the role of print in carbon reduction or want to know what we’ve learned through our carbon journey, get in touch.

Te reo Māori Language Plan

Te reo Māori has a special place in New Zealand. It is one of our official languages and is a unique feature of our country on the world stage.

Working with Te Taura Whiri i Te Reo Māori (The Māori Language Commission) we have developed a Māori language plan to help us to integrate te reo Māori into our everyday life at Excel Digital.
We have chosen to develop a formal plan as studies have proven that a formal plan will help to ensure our efforts to revitalise te reo are as effective as possible by establishing our ‘big picture’ goals and success criteria and ensuring we involve all stakeholders.
Our initial plan is for a six-month period, at the end of which we will review our progress and prepare a report on our progress. This report will be made available on this website.
By taking a conscious action to assist with the revitalisation of te reo Māori within New Zealand, we can contribute to a better, more inclusive nation.

We’re also committed to supporting our New Zealand Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) – around 60% of our suppliers are SME businesses.

Staff Wellbeing

Our people are behind everything we do.

We want to be an employer of choice, which is why we focus on creating and maintaining a great workplace culture and continually training and developing our team.
Mental health is a growing concern among the New Zealand workforce, and it’s an area where we want to make sure we are adequately supporting our people.
We’ve recently launched our Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) in partnership with EAP services, providing support services to all of our team – to further support their wellbeing and development.
