Oc? supports environmental research initiative Verdigris
Oc? has joined Verdigris, the not-for-profit print environmental research initiative, as a 'Founder' supporter. It joins Agfa, Canon Europe, Digital Dots, Drupa, Fujifilm, HP, Kodak, Unity Publishing, Ricoh and Screen in their support for the global project.
Verdigris' goal is to learn more about the carbon footprint of print and electronic media, from the point of file creation via production to final distribution, use and disposal. "Our aim is to become the print information hub for printers and print buyers seeking best practices for logistics, facilities, workflow, distribution, energy consumption, and recycling," said Laurel Brunner, the driving force behind Verdigris. "The support from suppliers has been fantastic and endorses the importance they place on environmental issues. Like our other sponsors, Oc? is very active in adopting and promoting best practice procedures and we welcome their contribution."
