Heidelberg Publishes Sustainability Report 2005

HEIDELBERG, Germany--(CCNMatthews - Aug 9, 2005) -

10-Year Graphs with Company Performance Indicators for the Economy, Environment and Social Responsibility Now on the Internet

Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) (FWB:HDD) published its Sustainability Report for financial year 2004/2005 at the end of July with a new concept. The world's leading solution provider for the print media industry gives details on a mix of topics covering the economy, environment and social responsibility in an 18-page magazine-style report.

In economic terms, the Heidelberg Group has achieved a turnaround in earnings, recording net profit of Euro 61 million in the past financial year. "The figures prove that the restructuring of the Heidelberg Group has been successful," said Bernhard Schreier, CEO at Heidelberg. "The concentration on sheetfed offset and associated processes ranging from print data input to the finished print product has put our company back on course."

Key elements in the new report include a forecast on the future development of the print media industry, international customer portraits, the importance of environmentally friendly print production and two features on international social projects. The publication can be used as a basis for an open and critical dialog with stakeholders on questions of sustainability at Heidelberg and shows the ways in which Heidelberg is able to accommodate and reconcile needs and opportunities in relation to sustainability.

This is the first year that the up-to-the-minute data section featuring all relevant key figures and site data can only be accessed online.
