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 December 22, 2009.

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.

  • Education
  • Public relations
  • Continuous improvement
  • Compliance assistance
  • Regulatory issue involvement

The Schaeffer Award recipient will receive an engraved plaque and be honored before a prestigious group of peers and industry leaders during the National Environmental Health and Safety (NEHS) Conference, March 15–17, 2010, in Indianapolis.
