  • February 11, 2020

Kodak, a global leader in developing sustainable printing solutions, awarded 52 printers from around the world, a record number, the 2019 SONORA Plate Green Leaf Award. The program, now in its seventh year, celebrates printers who are leaders in adopting sustainable practices that benefit the environment, their business and their customers.

Since the launch of the SONORA Plate Green Leaf Award program in 2013, the number of award applications has grown alongside the industry’s embrace of sustainable solutions. Kodak is pleased to announce that the 2019 SONORA Plate Green Leaf Award program now recognizes more than one winner per region, reflecting increased geographic diversity in the applications.

In addition to integrating KODAK SONORA Process Free Plates into their operations, each of the 52 companies demonstrated an ongoing commitment to investing in sustainable business practices. The winners were judged on a range of criteria by Kodak’s Health Safety & Environmental team, with special recognition going to the top-scoring printers from each region, which include: Advance Press (Australia); Amar Ujala Ltd. (India); Cartocor (Argentina); Drukkerij de Bij (Netherlands); Gemini Print (UK); Primex Printers (Philippines); Senshu-Iwai Printing Co. (Japan); Tweddle Group (U.S.); and Zühal Ofset (Turkey).
