An environmental database
With the support from The Danish Environmental Protection Agency and the Trade Council of Denmark, GA has launched an environmental website (www.miljonet.org). Miljonet.org. is a knowledge database containing a large volume of the current knowledge of the environmental influences in the field of printed products. The website contains hundreds of articles related to environmental subjects.
Industry and the environment
The graphic industry in Denmark is leading in the promotion and use of eco-labels, eco-management and life cycle analyses.
Today, a significant proportion of graphic companies have a certified eco-management system (ISO 14001 or EMAS), and the industry accounts for up to half of the licences for the environmental label; The Nordic Swan.
Graphic CSR code
Graphic Association Denmark and HK/Privat have together compiled a CSR code, which is targeted the graphic industry.
The code helps define a standard and a pratice about social responsibility for production of graphic products and services - both nationally and internationally.
The graphic industry's CSR code is based on UN Global Compact's ten principles, but is made more action oriented for the graphic industry.
