PrintCity Alliance Soon to Publish Environmental Report
PrintCity Alliance members are preparing to publish their latest environmental and energy report Carbon & Energy Reduction for the Graphics Industry Value Chain in early 2011.
This follows two years of research and 'connection of competence' knowledge sharing between members, partners plus external research and academic organisations.
The purpose of this new PrintCity 36-page guide is to facilitate the improved collaborative environmental performance of printers, publishers, brand owners and their suppliers.
PrintCity Alliance members Faist, Kurz, m-real, manroland, MKW, Sappi, Sun Chemical, Trelleborg and UPM, plus project partners including Kodak and Muller Martini have amassed a large body of technical, scientific and economic research involving several key areas of relevance for the printing & packaging industry:
Carbon Footprinting - how to understand and use this beneficial measurement tool Energy Reduction - examination of complete process chain + best practice advice International Harmonisation - PrintCity is working in collaboration with other organisations to improve understanding & achieve global standards harmonisation
PrintCity members have worked with experts from several international industry organisations to create and peer review this very special cross-industry study.
This new PrintCity environmental report follows the highly successful first publications by the alliance in 2008 - Sustainability, Energy and the Environment plus Energy Efficiency Optimisation for Web Offset Printers.
