CO₂ Neutral Machines
Reducing and avoiding CO2 emissions becomes increasingly important for ecologically orientated print shops. Heidelberg is the pioneer when it comes to Ecology. Since October 2011 we offer all models of the Speedmaster ranges as carbon-neutral presses. Since drupa 2012, all machines (Prepress, Press und Postpress) from Heidelberg are available as "CO2-neutral".
The Principle of Carbon-Neutrality
According to current scientific knowledge, the emission of greenhouse gases is mainly responsible for the climate change. The most relevant greenhouse gas is carbon dioxide (CO2). Further greenhouse gases defined in the Kyoto Protocol are calculated in CO2 equivalents (CO2e). The most important greenhouse gas emissions are generated by the combustion of fossil fuels.
