In 1968, 36 European scientists founded 'The Club of Rome'. They are concerned about the future of the world in terms of population growth, the environment and pollution. The Club's report 'Limits to Growth', published thirty years later, puts the environment on the global political agenda. In the meantime, we can no longer ignore it. Through innovation and awareness, we seek solutions for a cleaner world. Anyone can contribute to that.
What is corporate social responsibility (CSR)?
CSR means that a company focuses its activities on adding value to people, the environment and profit. In this respect, the company seeks a careful balance sheet and attunes it to the expectations of the company's stakeholders. CSR is a process, not a final destination. The goals pursued change over time and with every business decision. The company is looking for achievable steps to shape corporate social responsibility.

Our new 'Kodak Trensetter' offset plate illuminator is installed. At the same time, we switched to chemistry-free exposure. For this we use the new 'Kodak Sonora X' records. These process-free offset plates enable us to print greener and more economically.
