Climate-Neutral Printing with Certification as a “ClimatePartner”

Despite all efforts to avoid and reduce CO2 emissions, they cannot be eliminated entirely. In order to compensate for the environmental harm done, first the CO2 footprint of a print product is determined. Then the calculated emissions are compensated for by purchasing CO2 emission certificates.
The money paid for these certificates mostly goes to fund clean energy production in developing and newly industrializing countries. They have been criticized by some as a way to buy atonement for one’s sins, but in fact they are the third-most effective approach after avoiding and reducing CO2 emissions.
Bastian Druck was first certified as climate-neutral in 2007. In any case, as we make further progress in internally reducing our CO2 emissions, the less we need to pay to compensate for them and maintain our climate-neutral status.
