How does climate-neutral printing work?
The Climate Initiative of the Printing and Media Industries Federations enables print products and packaging to be produced in a climate-neutral manner.
This package consists of various services and a software tool.
Training and annual audits
Our consultants provide you with on-site assistance in acquiring the necessary data and train your staff in using the CO2-Calculator.
At the same time, we jointly draw up a comprehensive climate model for your company that contains all important CO2 sources:
- The infrastructure of your company
- Materials and distances from suppliers
- Energy consumption
- Disposal of residual materials
With the CO2-Calculator, you can calculate greenhouse gas emissions for individual print products.
At present we offer our services for:
- Sheetfed offset
- Web offset
- Newspaper offset
- Digital printing
- Gravure printing
- Packaging printing
- Printing envelope
Neutralizing CO2 emissions (compensation)
After the calculation you can offset the CO2 emissions for individual print products. This is done through investing in top-quality climate protection projects, thus making your print products climate-neutral. In this initiative we work with ARKTIK.
Every climate-neutral print product is checked by our consultants and is given a logo with a unique Identification Number. With this number, your customers and the consumers can track the results in the Internet.
You also receive a certificate that verifies offsetting of the emissions.
