PrintCity Alliance will Focus on GREEN Theme #Ipex

The PrintCity Alliance is dedicated to a sustainable future for the printing, packaging and publishing industry worldwide. We care about wise energy usage, avoiding impact on the environment and working for long-term sustainability.

Benefits from Environmental Good Practice

Utllising best practice knowledge from PrintCity Alliance members and many external partner organisations, our new 2010 study will help guide publishers, printers and packagers forward to apply best practice in this complex area. Some of the benefits they will gain are:

• Understanding Carbon impact on print & packaging media

• Ability to use Carbon Footprinting as an evaluation tool

• Opportunity to reduce energy usage, gain cost savings and improve competitiveness
