The PrintCity Alliance has published a new “Carbon Footprint & Energy Reduction for the Graphic Industry Value Chain” report. The purpose of the 32-page guide is to facilitate the improved collaborative environmental performance of printers, converters, publishers, brand owners and their suppliers. It is available in printed form from any participating company, or from www.printcity.de/shop at no cost.

Since 2009, PrintCity has amassed a large body of technical, scientific and economic research involving topics of relevance for the global printing & packaging industry. Experts from several international industry organizations created and peer reviewed the study, focusing on carbon footprinting, energy reduction and international standards harmonization.

The PrintCity report highlights the strong role that print should play in a constantly changing multi-media society.
