CPIA and Environment Canada collaborate on green issues
TORONTO—The Canadian Printing Industries Association (CPIA) has been asked by Environment Canada to co-chair a forum for information exchange on environmental issues such as VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions, the development of a Federal VOC strategy for the printing sector, and the Chemical Management Plan, Canada’s regulatory body for hazardous materials. This advisory group, known as the Printing and Inks Working Group (PIWG), will provide feedback to, and receive it from Environment Canada.
The committee met on March 22, 2011, in Toronto. Representatives attending included CPIA, Printing Industries of America, Specialty Graphic Imaging Association, Flexographic Technical Association, Environment Canada, Health Canada, Ontario’s Ministry of the Environment, Canadian Printing Ink Manufacturers Association, ink suppliers, sheetfed and digital press manufacturers, and adhesives suppliers.
“This is an opportunity for the industry to provide feedback to Environment Canada and Health Canada as they develop policies and regulations that will affect our industry. It is important for our industry to have a voice and input as new laws and regulations are drafted, governing the materials we use,” said Bob Elliott, CPIA president. 
All parties interested in participating in the forum, are invited to contact Bob Elliott at CPIA: (613) 236-7208 ext. 22, belliott@cpia-aci.ca
