KBA Offers Climate-Neutral Printing
Thanks to collaboration with ClimatePartner, Koenig & Bauer AG is the first printer manufacturer to offer environmentally-minded customers an individualized and easy-to-use solution for calculating the greenhouse gas emissions generated by printing production runs.
Effective immediately, KBA will be offering their own online platform in co-operation with the environmental protection consultancy out of Munich. Printing shops can use the platform to calculate the carbon dioxide emitted in their printing production runs, which could then be neutralized by participating in certified climate protection projects.
Printing shops registering at www.climateneutralprinting.com/kba an enter data relevant to emissions and obtain the information on their printing shop's individual carbon footprint, enabling them to henceforth print in a climate neutral manner. Furthermore, knowing a printing shop's carbon footprint is the starting point for making improvements in environmental protection. The Würzburg printer manufacturer is hoping to sensitize their customers to the challenges presented by climate change.
Klaus Schmidt, KBA director of marketing and communications, said, "Climate neutral printing is one of many services offered by KBA for sustainable printing production. We hope to support our customers not only with highly energy efficient printing equipment and our commitment to waterless offset printing in environment friendly production, but also to help them to select the best printing substrate and finishing processes with respect to environmental protection. That's why we've made the decision to come together with ClimatePartner to create an online platform for climate neutral printing."
