Fespa and environmental research initiative Verdigris have confirmed a working partnership which will enable them to share information, explore trends and offer education on issues with environmental sustainability.
Laurel Brunner, Verdigris founder says, “We are very excited to welcome our latest Verdigris member. We look forward to working with Fespa to support their already energetic efforts to raise environmental awareness in the wide format sector.”
She adds that, working together, they will inform Fespa visitors and exhibitors with 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 receive independent advice from the Verdigris team of experts on how to embed sustainable printing techniques within their business.
Chris Smith, head of membership services at Fespa, says, “Our new venture with Verdigris is another example of Fespa’s commitment to supporting the global print community in becoming more sustainable. 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.”
Fespa’s planet friendly printing initiatives are part of its ongoing profit for purpose programme which reinvests surplus revenues from Fespa exhibitions for the benefit of the global Fespa community, through education, knowledge-sharing, research and networking initiatives.
