Ipex Preview – Environment – feature:“The pressure has been on the print industry to be green for several years now and the signs are that the message is getting through, with ISO 14001 and FSC or PEFC accreditations now standard at most large commercial printers. The signs are that this year’s Ipex will take the environmental message even further, with the main manufacturers all keen to demonstrate their credentials”.(Phillip Chadwick, Print Week, 29 April 2010)

There are minimum standards that all printers can employ such as ensuring their clients records have been put through a data cleansing service. It may reduce the amount of printed material necessary but will highlight the seriousness of the printer to deliver a green service and put the clients’ interests first.

“It is still a volatile market, but the green agenda is still very high on people’s list,” says J&G Environmental Customer Care Manager, Richard Spreadbury.“It’s all about the bottom line. The environment has a role to play in business.”

There are few businesses out there that can deliver cost savings to third party clients while providing an extra income stream to the printer under the green banner.

This won’t be easy, since of the 40,000 printing companies in the U.S., fewer than 10 have received this ISO 14001 certification from the International Standards Organization for adopting environmental management system. Don’t despair, though, if your favorite printer doesn’t have this certification. It’s not the only measure of a printer’s environmental practices.

Many other measures can be followed for environment management practices. Hazardous wastes generated by printing should be disposed off carefully.
