At the beginning of the year, Iceland’s Environmental Minister presented Mr. Jon Omar Erlingsson, the Oddi Printing CEO, a certification from the Nordic Ecolabel for its leading environmental awareness in the Icelandic printing industry.
The presentation was a festive occasion that marked the end of a 12 month process, in which Oddi’s employees and managers mapped out all the different environmental practices already in place at the plant as well as upgrading others.
Current environment issues and concerns are however not a new thing for Oddi Printing. It has been an ongoing process for decades and the plant has been presented with a number of awards for its sound environmental practices and standards. To name just a few, the plant was awarded with the Reykjavik Environmental award in 1997 and the Ministry of the Environment Award in 2004.
For Oddi Printing’s customers, knowing that the printing plant is certified by the Nordic Ecolabel is extremely important as most now know that there are few printing plants operating on this level of environmental consciousness. Pending the customers wishes, the Nordic Ecolabel logo, the Swan, can now be placed on all books, catalogues, magazines and other printed material from Oddi Printing’s plant in Reykjavik, Iceland.
