The Lithographic Institute of Australia (LIA) NSW will host a tour of the Fuji Xerox Rosehill facility next month, with the theme A Blueprint for Sustainable Practices.

The technical dinner evening, to be held on 2 April, will focus on ways to reduce print’s environmental impact. According to Mike Williams, LIA NSW committee member, the printing industry is increasingly being charged with finding new ways to reduce raw material consumption and waste production.

Great opportunity: Mike Williams, LIA NSW.

“As it happens in our industry, we have one such example in Fuji Xerox Australia, which has developed some compelling initiatives involving sustainability, recycling, energy consumption and giving back to the environment.

“The good news is that it has offered to throw open its doors to the LIA and share these significant initiatives with the wider graphic arts community and as such, will host a plant tour and show the various processes that go into a closed loop system for keeping its customers going with minimal environmental impact,” said Williams.

The tour will commence at 6pm, and will be followed by dinner at the nearby Rosehill Bowling Club at 7:30pm, during which guests will hear an overview of the process and have the opportunity to ask questions.

“This will be a great opportunity to watch, listen and learn and open our minds to possibilities within our own businesses,” said Williams.
