FESPA and Verdigris join forces to strengthen planet friendly printing

FESPA and environmental research initiative Verdigris have confirmed their new working partnership whereby they will share information, explore new trends and educate the FESPA global community about a range of issues surrounding environmental sustainability.

“Our new venture with Verdigris is another example of our commitment to supporting the global print community in becoming more sustainable,” comments head of membership services Chris Smith. “This is a key issue that we have championed within our global community since 2004 by encouraging printers to embrace more planet friendly printing practices.

“The support that we will have from Verdigris will be invaluable in helping FESPA to continue to provide our National Associations and their members with access to new ideas, guidance and in-depth knowledge across all areas of sustainability.”

By working together they will inform FESPA visitors and exhibitors with valuable and informative content. This content provided by Verdigris will include weekly blogs and quarterly features which will be published within the Planet Friendly Printing area of www.fespa.com. Visitors and members of FESPA will benefit from independent advice from the Verdigris team of experts on how to embed sustainable printing techniques within their business.

“We are very excited to welcome our latest Verdigris member,” says Verdigris founder Laurel Brunner. “We look forward to working with FESPA to support their already energetic efforts to raise environmental awareness in the wide format sector.”

FESPA’s Planet Friendly Printing initiatives are part of its ongoing Profit for Purpose programme which reinvests surplus revenues from its exhibitions for the benefit of the global FESPA PSP community through education, knowledge-sharing, research and networking initiatives.
