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.

Frankfurter Societätsdruckerei GmbH

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.

Quality assurance

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.
