Entries for the second Heidelberg ECO Printing Award invited

Underlines its role as a champion of environmental protection in the printing industry and following the success of the Heidelberg ECO Printing Award 2008, Heidelberg is once again inviting print shops across the globe to compete for its international environmental award for sustainable printing in the sheetfed offset sector.

Heidelberg offers a total prize fund of EUR 50,000 for the award, which is divided into two categories: ‘Sustainable companies’ and ‘Forward-looking solutions’. 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 can be submitted up to Jan 31, 2011 and the prizes will be presented in June 2011.
