WALCKER Offsetdruck from Isny im Allgäu has won the Climate and Energy Innovation Award worth EUR 50,000. The award is bestowed by Lechwerke AG, based in Augsburg, one of the leading providers of environmentally-friendly hydroelectric energy.

In honour of the company’s 110th birthday, Lechwerke is for the first time recognising innovative, exemplary measures that contribute to climate protection and improve the region’s energy efficiency in the long term. WALCKER Offsetdruck received the award for its sustainable application of various energy-saving technologies in its industrial offset printing.

Paul Waning, member of the Management Board of Lechwerke AG, commented on the 2011 Innovation Award: “The high standard of the compelling submissions did not make the jury’s task easy. The decisive factors were the level of innovation, cost-effectiveness and how well these measures could be implemented in other companies and municipal institutions.”

Dr. Thomas Schön, Managing Director of WALCKER Offsetdruck, on receiving the 2011 Innovation Award: “I am delighted that we have set a positive example for other industries through our actions. We consider the conservation of resources in our company’s material and energy use to be a fundamental responsibility to our environment. That is why we have been using the latest technology to maximise the energy efficiency of our production processes for many years.”
