Sustainability in the workplace – Small actions make a big difference 

If yours is an organisation that prides itself on ethical approaches and eco-friendly credentials, the chances are your sustainability policy will be as much a priority as your health and safety and online privacy commitments. But there’s more to sustainability and what it can do for your workplace than simply a ubiquitous title on your website footer.

Sustainability means going further to reduce your company’s impact on the planet – invariably it will mean a call to arms for your people and your processes, but it can also generate a great sense of wellbeing for your teams and visitors. Do it right and you’ll also have your brand’s sustainability resolve covered from the welcoming first impression to a lasting legacy of a genuinely meaningful workplace initiative.

The best place to start is with a powerful, sustainable architectural signage solution that welcomes with carbon-neutral wayfinding systems and guides and informs with natural, eco-friendly interior signs that will linger in the memory long after the visit.

Signbox has a range of great sustainable signage solutions that will transform the workplace – and the views of the people who use them. 

Signbox are committed to sustainability and reducing our environmental impact.  Our new product development process includes identifying and utilising the latest in environmentally conscious materials.  Some of the latest material innovations we are working with include:-

Greenguard Inks

Signbox uses greenguard inks and these small steps make big waves in sustainability. Most people forget about the ink used on the wallcovering and manifestations even if they have selected a more sustainable PVC free material. The Greenguard certification is granted to products that meet some of the worlds most rigorous chemical emission standards.


Green Cast Acrylics

These acrylics are 100% recycled and 100% recyclable. They are available in a wide range of colours, with the same look and performance of the original product but with a lower planet impact.

PVC Free – Optically Clear Polyester Film

When producing glass manifestations there are huge benefits for choosing an optically clear polyester film compared to a PVC equivalent. Its not only more sustainable but the longevity of the product is so much better. The clarity is far superior to a PVC vinyl as there is no distortion from the adhesive and the film. If you combine this product with the Greenguard inks this makes a convincing difference to sustainability.  

Paste for wall covering

A sustainable paste is a water based adhesive as used by Signbox. It is important to combine this with a sustainable wall covering.

Beautiful, sustainable interior and exterior bamboo signage

The Signbox Hybrid sign system is a premium modular sustainable outdoor sign system that combines the relentlessly durable, weather resistant and sustainable qualities of exterior-grade bamboo with powerful materials to bring sign scheme and setting to life. You’ll see it across landmark commercial building, hotel and hospitality spaces and at home in woodland settings, schools and university campuses as well as eco-conscious public spaces.

For an exciting sustainable interior signage solution that draws on the beauty and grace of Hybrid, we have developed Signboo, Signboo is a wayfinding information sign manufactured from 7mm sheets of bamboo and glass elements. Specifically designed for the hotel and spa sector, Signboo sustainable signs can incorporate stencil-cut graphics and contemporary finishes including satin-etched glass, acrylic, slate, brass, copper, corten and stainless steel.

Solar-powered signage to light the way

Signbox’s Solar range includes a fantastic selection of solar-powered signage products, including Solarpost, a one-metre high solar-powered control bollard system that can be surface or sub-surface mounted or buried. This clever illuminated signage system monitors ambient light levels, automatically anticipates the transition from day to night, even allowing for seasonal changes, and has PIR sensors that detect movement up to 5 metres away with LEDs that brighten the way for 10 seconds before gently dimming again.

Combine bamboo and solar to project and impress

If you’re serious about sustainability in your workplace and want to project your ethical prowess to your visitors head on, Hybrid Beam, Signbox’s solar illuminated sign that’s mounted on a stunning engineered bamboo beam will, quite literally, do just that. This customisable 200m wide bamboo sign with solar powered lighting is affordable – thanks to its minimal groundworks’ costs, easy to install and, critically, provides zero energy costs and CO2 emissions.


Richlite is made using compressed sheets of resin-infused paper to create a solid stable sheet of material.
