Heidelberg Steps Up Its Environmental Commitment
December 7, 2007 +++ Main focus at the year-end trade press conference: ‘Sustainable Printing’ +++
Environmental protection has been one of Heidelberg’s corporate objectives as far back as in 1992; the Company intends to remain the forerunner in environmental protection in the future as well. Heidelberg’s developers keep working on concepts to minimize environmental pollution in print shops: If customers implement all the measures suggested by Heidelberg, spoilage can be reduced by up to 80 percent, energy consumption by more than 15 percent, and CO2 emissions by over 5 percent. The biggest environmental factor in sheetfed offset printing is startup waste – it can be reduced most efficiently by implementing the new Anicolor inking unit technology.
