Printing Industries of America is seeking to honor an individual who has unselfishly made significant contributions toward environmentally sound practices in the printing industry. Nominations for the William D. Schaeffer Environmental Award are now being accepted and are due by March 5, 2013.

Established in 1990, this award is named for environmental pioneer and researcher, Dr. William D. Schaeffer, who is celebrated in the industry for his contributions to environmental issues.

The Schaeffer Award serves to recognize an individual’s focus on advancing environmental awareness and action in the graphic communication industry as a whole. Nominees must have sustained long-term efforts that resulted in successful environmental programs and improvements which contributed to one or more of the following areas:

  • Education
  • Public Relations
  • Continuous Improvement
  • Compliance Assistance
  • Regulatory Issue Involvement
  • Pioneering Efforts

The Schaeffer Award recipient will receive an engraved plaque and be honored before a prestigious group of peers and industry leaders during Printing Industries of America’s Spring Administrative Meetings, June 1–2, 2013, in Pittsburgh, PA.
