Greenworks

"GreenWorks™, an Agfa Graphics initiative, accredits customers in the graphic communications industry in North America, who achieve greener outcomes through technology, products, services and practices."

 

Agfa Graphics does not consider sustainability as a mere tool to green up its image. Instead, it is part of our strategy to systematically improve the cost and environmental performance of our products and operations. We have a long track record when it comes to sustainable development. Environmental sustainability is embedded as a set of technical requirements in our R&D projects for new systems, which are equally valued as quality, performance and cost specifications. Compliance on product regulatory requirements is considered as a sine qua non to bring products to the markets.

Agfa Graphics is committed to reducing the industry’s environmental impact, systematically improving the cost, quality and environmental performance of our products and operations. Our solutions are designed to maximize renewable resources, eliminate toxic chemicals, reduce waste, lower ink and water consumption and save energy.

Recognizing customers for environmentally-safer practices

As part of our corporate strategy, we are working to support customers who, through their actions, have demonstrated environmental responsibility. GreenWorks™, an Agfa Graphics initiative, accredits customers in the graphic communications industry in North America, who achieve greener outcomes through technology, products, services and practices.

Many Benefits of GreenWorks Accreditation

All GreenWorks accredited customers are featured on GD USA and Agfa Graphics websites and promoted to buyers/designers interested in environmental responsibility. An embedded link takes these buyers and designers to your site.

GreenWorks accredited customers are recognized with a plaque and become a prestigious member of the GreenWorks community. Every GreenWorks customer receives a marketing toolkit to help them promote their environmental stewardship. It includes the GreenWorks logo, GreenWorks Accreditation logo and suggested ways to promote their business. In addition, accredited GreenWorks companies receive templates for e-communications, advertising, direct mail, press releases, and professional assistance to help market their environmentally-safer practices.

GreenWorks accredited companies may also be featured in Agfa Graphics public relations, testimonial campaigns, and on the Agfa Graphics website, providing further exposure if desired.

Developing Environmental Solutions

Agfa Graphics critically examines environmental and safety issues through each stage of a product's life cycle to provide best manufacturing practices and solutions that meet our customers' business needs as well as reduce waste and resource consumption. Some of these include:

  • Plate systems that reduce waste, chemistry and energy use
  • Chemistry with reduced Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) or gases emitted from some solids or liquids that contribute to ground level air pollution
  • Workflows that reduce waste (paper, ink, etc.) throughout the production chain
  • Inkjet solutions that minimize the amount of ink, paper and energy

How to Qualify
