Looking towards a sustainable print future.
This issue of Inprint celebrates sustainability in print and puts emphasis on its importance – both environmentally and through investing in the future of our industry. It is great to see that our members are raising sustainability on their agenda.
We look at the potential factors that might be considered by the Government in regards to climate change in ‘Playing climate catch-up’ on page 4. We ask you to take a look at Corporate Social Responsibility in your company on page 6, and encourage you not to ‘waste money on waste’ on page 8.
We continue to keep you updated with the latest Brexit activities. At the time of writing, we have just entered the 11 month Transition Period. Nothing much will change during this time, however we inform you on what you need to know about travelling during this transition, covering topics such as driving in the EU and accessing healthcare in the EU (page 16).
We introduce some of the fantastic speakers at this year’s Visual Media Conference (page 20), taking place on Tuesday 7 April at the Rose Bowl in Leeds. Organised by CDI, a special interest group of the BPIF, this year’s theme ‘Fake it or make it’, addresses the falseness of news, abuse of data, Google stats, fake followers, greenwashing and importantly the obverse – trustworthiness and authenticity.

We absolutely loved celebrating National Apprenticeship Week 2020 and share with you our celebrations throughout the week, including our apprentice visit to Antalis Academy and our attendance at the Leeds Apprenticeship Recruitment Fair. Two fantastic Awards are also now open for entries – the Victor Watson Trophy and the Kathy Woodward Award for Learning.
Lastly, entries for the British Book Design & Production Awards open on Tuesday 10 March so be sure to enter your beautiful books to be in with a chance of winning an Award this year! The Awards ceremony will take place on Monday 9 November 2020 at De Vere Grand Connaught, London.
