Sustainability

We keep working systematically and consistently on improving our environmental performance!

Sustainable printing

We use sustainable, eco-friendly inks and varnishes. We also work with non-mineral oil eco-printing inks made from renewable raw materials (suitable for toy and children’s book production), and upon requirement also use food-safe inks. The water-based dispersion varnishes we use since 2019 are suitable for food packaging.

 

Our printing is done WITHOUT ISOPROPYL!

Alcohol-free printing in large sheet offset formats since 2001.

Deployment of non-chemical printing plates (since spring of 2020)

 

NEW: We use electricity from our own rooftop for printing!
In 2020 our 366 kWp-photovoltaics system went into operation.
We use 85% of the electricity generated in-house, covering 25% of our energy needs. The remainder is supplied by 100% regenerative sources (Garantiert Grün certificate).

 

Further measures
  •   Three electric vehicles in company fleet, bike leasing for our staff
  •   Upon request: climate-neutral printing with ClimatePartner
  •   Consistent recycling, use of multi-cycle systems
  •   Powder and dust extraction
  •   Machine waste heat recovery
