The project’s centrepiece features the new printing industry specific guide with 10 information sheets to help business improve their environmental performance and take advantage of the efficiency and profit opportunities that can result.
Printing Industries NSW State general manager, Robert Fuller, says the association has worked closely with DEC in the development of the publication and the supporting checklists.
"In addition to our initial project development advice, we provided DEC with access to our own Environmental Management Manual which is referred to throughout the publication and to our environmental consultancy which helped DEC complete the project," he says.
"The guide will be distributed for free during the RoadShow. It contains a ’useful tools’ section that helps companies to develop their own environmental management tools such as check lists and action plans.
"It also contains an environmental self assessment checklist with the types of questions that an officer from a local council or the Environmental Protection Agency could ask when visiting your premises. DEC and Printing Industries intend to compliment the information provided in the RoadShow with a half day training course on how to implement the action plans and to gain the most from it."
The Information Sheets will be freely available on the DEC’s web site after the RoadShow has been completed.
The RoadShow begins on March 15 in Tamworth followed by North Sydney on March 20, South Sydney on March 21, Bankstown on March 23, Liverpool on March 27, Parramatta on March 29, Newcastle on April 4, Shellharbour on April 12, Griffith on April 17 and Albury on April 18.
