Journal of Technology Studies, v36 n2 p55-62 Fall 2010
Increasing population, total economic volume, and human consumption levels have resulted in problems of resource shortages, climate change, ozone layer depletion, land regression, and deteriorating environmental pollution. Printing and related industries constitute one of the major sources of environmental pollution due to heavy energy and resource (materials) use. Therefore, there is a need to adopt resourceful thinking regarding activities in the printing and related industries, so they can contribute to environmental protection by adhering to greener, eco-friendly, and sustainable practices. This article discusses strategies that these industries could adopt, which would put their businesses on sound economic footing as they adhere to sustainable business practices that contribute to and safeguard the environment.
