JNCC Annual Report 2008/2009
JNCC’s Annual Report 2008/2009 is now available. Our annual report shows the continued work that JNCC has been involved with and its new vision and mission prepares JNCC for the challenges ahead.



Design at the cutting edge, combined with the latest in ‘green’ paper stockAnnual Report 2008/2009


JNCC always looks to be innovative with the design and execution of its Annual Report.  This year, the front cover was created using an experimental technique we believe has not been used elsewhere, in order to bring out the colour of the marnine organism that is our ‘cover star’.


Printed on a six colour ‘Hexachrome’ press, the usual orange ink used on this machine was replaced with a fluorescent orange, to further bring out the qualities of the brisingid seastar – making it seem like it is glowing.  Having set the goal of attracting people’s attention with our Annual Report covers, we think you’ll agree that we have achieved our goal once again.


The Cocoon paper range, which is manufactured from 100 per cent FSC-certified, recycled, de-inked pulp, is a recent launch by Arjowiggins Graphic.  It is the material used for both the cover and the front half of the report.


Cocoon Offset is an uncoated offset paper with high levels of whiteness, even when compared with papers manufactured from virgin fibres. The range is produced using ecological technology at its Greenfield SAS mill. It is produced with a low-carbon footprint, making it suitable for those who put sustainability at the heart of their publications and marketing materials.


Cocoon includes environmental declaration sheets detailing the sustainability credentials of the range and providing printers with a guide to the product.


The back section of the report, the appendices, are printed on Cyclus Offset.  Cyclus papers are 100% recycled, made entirely from 100% post consumer waste. The Cyclus mill has a commitment to the environment - as well as the use of 100% de-inked post-consumer waste fibre, all waste materials created during the manufacturing process are recycled, and used in products such as cement, asphalt, wall panelling and even fertiliser!
