Kodak sets out new green goals

The global attitude to climate change is mostly positive, with many countries across the world implementing rules and schemes to tackle the effects. At the end of 2017, Kodak released its 2016 corporate responsibility report, which outlines environmental goals up until 2025.

Kodak has outlined targets in a corporate responsibility report, which includes sending zero waste to landfill

Targets in the report include achieving zero waste, reduce greenhouse gas emissions from Kodak sites all over the world, and reducing water and energy consumption.

Jeff Clarke, chief executive officer of Kodak, comments: “At Kodak, we continue to leverage our deep domain expertise in scientific innovation to provide the most advanced and environmentally-friendly technologies to reach our goals.

“I’m excited about the programs we have in place and I am looking forward to what the growing adoption of our sustainable technologies will mean for the future as we look to move the needle on better environmental practices.”

Not only do Kodak plan to have a more positive environmental impact, but also a helpful role within society. The company aims to send employees to volunteering events and lend a hand in local communities.

We were the first to successfully commercialise a printing plate requiring no processing chemicals, and have established a reputation for our packaging printing systems

The company’s Eastman Business Park in New York, which was used to manufacture film and chemicals in the 1920’s, has now been renovated into a recycling site. Kodak will recycle 40 million pounds of methanol, ethanol and other potentially hazardous items, in its bid to hit a target of tripling the amount of waste products recovered.

Clarke writes at the start of the report: “From a product perspective, today’s Kodak is taking environmental solutions from printing to an exciting new level. We were the first to successfully commercialise a printing plate requiring no processing chemicals, and have established a reputation for our packaging printing systems, which enable exceptional print quality in addition to environmental performance.

“These products not only create meaningful environmental benefits, they also reduce costs and enhance efficiencies for printers, enabling them to operate more sustainability.”
