Climate-Neutral Printing Solution from manroland and ClimatePartner

Press release from the issuing company

Simple and transparent calculation and offsetting of carbon dioxide emissions

In cooperation with ClimatePartner, manroland now offers its customers an IT solution to calculate and compensate for CO2 emissions in print production.

manroland and ClimatePartner, the climate protection consultants, have been working together since early 2011. In order to offer printing companies a simple and transparent service for climate-neutral print production, the two companies are expanding their cooperation by starting a joint IT system solution. This enables CO2 emissions from print jobs to be calculated and offset online under the link: www.manroland.com/com/en/company-partners-system-climatepartner.htm

Effective CO2 management, comprehensive environment and climate protection
After they enter their emissions-relevant data like power, heating, vehicle fleet, etc., printing companies are advised of their personal carbon footprint. This serves as a starting point for developing a climate protection strategy and for automatic generation of an individual CO2 calculator. Printing companies can use this calculator to ascertain all CO2 emissions for every job – from paper grade through printing right up to and including transport – and offset them with the support of recognized climate protection projects. This transparent and comprehensible procedure entitles companies to use the ClimatePartner logo "climate-neutral printing" with an individual certificate number for every job. Through a variety of measures, manroland customers are automatically involved in climate and environment protection. For example, the printing systems themselves are designed for ecofriendly production, right in line with the motto Economy through Ecology. Resource conservation and lower costs are achieved through IPA-free or IPA-reduced printing, low paper waste levels, individually coordinated consumable materials, and heat recovery. Furthermore, the system solution with ClimatePartner makes a printing company's CO2 footprint transparent and through the support of recognized climate protection projects also enables its customers to play an active role in climate protection.
