Heidelberg ECO Printing Award Entries Due by End of February
HEIDELBERG, GERMANY—Jan. 28, 2011—The deadline for entries to the Heidelberg ECO Printing Award presented by Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) will be end of February 2011. The company has set aside a total prize fund of EUR 50,000 for the sustainable sheetfed offset printing award program, which is divided into two categories—“Sustainable companies” and “Forward-looking solutions.”
All entries must be submitted in written form. Entry forms are available online at www.heidelberg.com/eco_award. The Heidelberg ECO Printing Award will be presented in June 2011.
The environmental award focuses in particular on the sustainable use of resources and energy, climate protection and environmentally aware management practices. These aspects of sustainability can relate to a company as a whole, or to exceptional one-off solutions in prepress, press, postpress, logistics and corporate culture. Winners should set a benchmark for the entire industry and encourage others to adopt sustainable business practices and solutions.
Entries welcome from all sheetfed offset print shops
The Heidelberg ECO Printing Award is open to any print shop that operates at least one sheetfed offset press. The number of presses is unimportant, as is the volume of production, the vertical range of manufacture, and the size of the print shop. Print shops from anywhere in the world that use any kind of substrate (paper, card or foil) can submit an entry.
An independent international panel of judges, including representatives of the printing industry, environmental scientists, and members of environmental associations, will examine the entries and select the winners in the two categories.
Entries should be submitted by mail, e-mail, or fax to:
