Climate neutral printing is an important point for your climate protection strategy

The objective of climate protection is to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases such as CO2 and thus limit the anthropogenic greenhouse effect. The first step in all climate protection activities is an inventory of the amount of carbon emissions released by a company, a product, or a service. These so-called carbon footprints allow you to identify potentials for the avoidance and reduction of carbon emissions. For example, this can take place through efficiency measures and the use of renewable energy sources. By supporting carbon offset projects, you can also offset the carbon emissions that cannot be avoided in the short term.

In climate neutral printing, the amount of greenhouse gas emissions caused by the production of the print product is calculated and subsequently offset using emission reduction certificates from internationally recognized carbon offset projects. The emissions caused by the substrate, the printing materials, printing, processing and transportation are taken into account.

Carbon offset projects avoid carbon emissions. For instance, a wind farm in Turkey improves the energy supply in the region without using fossil fuels – such as coal and diesel – and releasing carbon emissions. These are tradable CO2 savings in the form of emission reduction certificates. The mechanism of emissions trading globally enables the promotion of sustainable development and the avoidance of CO2 at the lowest possible cost. To this end, different types of carbon offset projects are used – such as hydropower plants, biomass plants, wind farms, reforestation projects and forest protection projects.

Forest Protection, Pará, Brazil

Brazil is one of the countries with the largest forest areas worldwide but also experiences massive deforestation which causes 75% of the country's carbon emissions.

Among the drivers of deforestation are activities like agriculture, ranching and logging, which are facilitated by the Amazon river is a transportation route. The Marajó island at the mouth of the river has been shaped by subsistence farming for many decades.

The local "várzea", a vital ecosystem, is home to ten endemic species. The Ecomapuá project protects a 90,000 ha area by banning commercial wood extraction and promoting alternative sources of income for the five local communities. It saves carbon emissions by avoiding deforestation and improves living conditions for 94 families in one of Brazil's least developed regions.

The project has initiated reforestation measures in two communities, offering training courses in seed production and sale. Another means of income generation is the planting, collection and processing of the native açaí fruit which is experiencing growing international demand as a so-called "superfood". In addition, the açaí seeds serve as a base for bio-fuel production.

The Ecomapuá project is located in Pará, a state in Northeastern Brazil, and comprises an area of about 90,000 ha on the Marajó island at the mouth of the Amazon river.

Contributions to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals:
  • Climate Action, Life on Land: Preservation of an essential carbon sink, sustainable forest management in an endangered ecosystem
  • Decent Work, Economic Growth: Promotion of alternative income generation, creating 300 new jobs for residents in açaí production and tree
  • Infrastructure: Construction of a school building, aviaries, apiaries, vegetable gardens, fish farming tanks and poultry farms
  • Reduced Inequalities: Empowerment of local residents through tree nurseries and açaí production under community ownership
