PrintCity Alliance member vendors exhibiting at Ipex 2010 are focusing on three themes, "PRINT: LEAN.GREEN.SEEN."

According to the alliance, "GREEN is concerned with Environmental Impact and is inter-connected with lean manufacturing, both of which can deliver cost savings and business growth opportunities. In our latest project in this area, PrintCity members have been working since 2009 on a new ‘Carbon Footprint & Energy Efficiency’ study, which will be published in autumn 2010."

Focused on the theme, ‘Carbon & Energy Reduction for the Graphic Industry Value Chain,’ PrintCity Alliance members’ work intends to help provide clarity of understanding on this complex subject with information on strategies, techniques and technologies to help improve the overall cost and environmental performance of printers, publishers, brand owners and other print users.

At Ipex 2010, visitors can access the combined knowledge of Alliance members and discuss research findings from these PrintCity environmental impact "GREEN" activities:  

  • Carbon Footprint & Energy Efficiency study on understanding and applying good practice in carbon footprinting and wise energy management for the entire printing & packaging industry.
  • Sustainability, Energy & Environment – original 2008 ‘connection of competence’ special report promotes effective cooperation across the entire process chain.  
  • Energy Efficiency & Optimization for Web Offset Printers – this publication looks specifically at web offset printing, with in-depth analysis plus energy optimisation advice. It offers practical guidance to improve overall energy efficiency, helping sustainability.

All printers, publishers, brand owners, designers and advertising agencies are invited to visit the PrintCity Alliance members at their Hall 17 "connection of competence hub" at Ipex.
