Austrian Printing & Media Technology Association and ClimatePartner conclude climate protection alliance

Pooling of forces will enable the entire print & media industry and its customers to implement climate protection measures even better.

The Verband Druck & Medientechnik is now working with ClimatePartner to provide the entire Austrian printing industry with high-quality and industry-wide access to climate-neutral printing. As part of the partnership, the Verband Druck & Medientechnik and ClimatePartner are offering an industry-specific CO2 calculator that can be integrated into any standard calculation software used by print shops and graphic arts companies.

Alexandra Zotter, Managing Director of the Association, explains: "As a strong industry representative, it is important to us to push forward issues and set new standards. By joining forces with ClimatePartner, we combine our industry know-how with the environmental and technological expertise of a proven climate protection expert. This enables us to position the topic of 'climate-neutral printing' even better in the industry and also with their customers. Our goal with this alliance is to establish climate-neutral printing even better.

Moritz Lehmkuhl, Managing Director of ClimatePartner, adds: "We expressly welcome the climate commitment of the Verband Druck & Medientechnik and are pleased to be able to support it. Climate neutrality is a central future topic for the industry, and the association is setting an example in this respect, offering its members important support in the areas of innovation, environmental protection and competitiveness. With our many years of experience, we see ourselves as being ideally positioned to be a long-term and future-proof partner in this area.

Printing industry has long been committed to environmental protection
The printing & media industry recognised early on that sustainable and environmentally conscious production is not only essential for the environment but also economically necessary. Numerous measures, such as the reduction of chemicals, professional recycling or the use of natural-based printing inks, have already been implemented. Climate-neutral printing was and is a further logical step towards protecting the environment.

ClimatePartner is a specialist for the printing & media industry
With ClimatePartner, the pioneer and innovation leader in the field of holistic climate protection solutions such as climate neutrality and CO2 compensation, the association is now raising its previous climate protection activities to a new level. ClimatePartner has outstanding solution competence and expertise in the calculation and balancing of CO2 emissions in the printing industry and their compensation through certified offset projects.

Printing companies also receive state-of-the-art technologies that are also compatible with the industry's classic calculation programs. ClimatePartner is providing the association with an industry-specific CO2 calculator that can be integrated into the systems for preparing quotations for the respective printing and graphic arts companies via an innovative interface. In this way, they can offer their services as a climate-neutral option. The CO2 calculation carried out via the interface is based on the many years of experience and expertise of ClimatePartner and its technologies, which are already used by more than 2,000 companies in a total of 30 countries. Print shop customers can choose from a comprehensive pool of national and international climate protection projects at ClimatePartner.
