Carbon neutral printing
Due to the global warming, eco-balances are increasingly important to customers. This is fueling a growing demand for carbon-neutral print products. Customers are exhibiting increasing environmental awareness. They expect reliable figures for CO2 emissions generated during printing and the CO2-Calculators to offset these.
Heidelberg is compensating with PROJECT TOGO
The carbon neutral print products from Heidelberg are calculated and compensated with the natureOffice CO2 Calculator. The certificates are assigned to specific climate protection projects. Heidelberg decided to invest into certificates of the PROJECT TOGO. This is a reforestation project according to the Gold Standard.
Easy and quick compensation
The calculator from natureOffice is adapted to the special needs of print shops since nearly 10 years and is in use worldwide. The focus is thereby put on an easy and quick usability for printers.
Basis for calculating the carbon offset
This process is validated from bifa Environmental Institute Augsburg. The calculation is ISO 16759 compliant. To compensate all CO2 emissions, which directly or indirectly arise are identified. In this inventory, all CO2 emissions generated during the printing itself, but also the emissions caused during paper manufacture and transport are considered.
With the mandatory retirement of recognized climate protection certificates, emissions are then offset - that is climate-neutral.
