The move is related to the Association’s establishment of a member’s Buying Group to reduce operating cost in key areas of business expense.
Bill Healey, CEO of Printing Industries says while full details of the Buying Group would be progressively released, its initial focus was on the major business expense area of electricity.
He says, “There is not a single company in our industry that would not benefit from being able to lower their energy costs, so we have made the achievement of this goal the number one priority for our Member Buying Group.
“Since power costs will continue to escalate, it is important that we explore all options including electricity purchasing and efficient energy use to help our members keep these operating costs to a minimum.”
Healey adds that preliminary research has identified savings in the vicinity of 11 per cent can be made off the electricity bill for a mid-sized printing company.
He says the survey would be invaluable in identifying industry energy consumption and costs, current providers and access to sustainability and energy management processes.
The survey, which can be accessed here, closes on Wednesday February 8.
