Sustainable production options
FSC®-certified paper suppliers
We only work with FSC®-certified suppliers in our production. We also offer you the option of using paper from sustainably managed forests as a means of responsibly using our global forestry resources.
Recycled paper as an alternative to fresh-fibre paper
You can actively reduce the consumption of resources by choosing paper made from recycled materials with a ration of between 30% and 100%. This cuts emissions and significantly reduces energy consumption during production.
Plant-based inks and varnishes
In conventional offset printing, we use organic inks with no mineral oil content as standard. With the use of inks based on vegetable oil, the alcohol-reduced printing process and the renunciation of palm oil usage, we offer you sustainable print products from renewable raw materials. Use water-based dispersion varnishes with the renunciation of alcohol or choose biodegradable film laminations.
We offer many varying finishing options and add haptic and visual accents to your product. There is a range of finishes that also meet your ecological requirements: Blind embossing, single, multi-level, high or deep embossing, applied and inserted title label, die-cutting, laser cutting.
Vinyl records made from bio-based PVC
With BioVinyl, we offer an sustainable vinyl record variant. For this innovative product we use bio-based PVC in the production process. The BioVinyl is identical in quality to a conventional pressing and is available in various colours. Learn more about BioVinyl.
Recycling vinyl record
With the ReVinyl we offer a sustainable alternative to conventional vinyl production. The vinyl record is produced using 100% recycled materials from the in-house material recovery directly at the production site in Röbel/Müritz. Learn more about ReVinyl.
Environmentally friendly packaging for your products
Check whether your products really require cellophane packaging, and consider choosing from using any of our many plastic-free packaging options. Like conventional paper and cardboard, these can consist of between 30% and 100% recycled material.
Climate-neutral production and shipping
Offset the CO2 emissions generated in the production and shipping process by purchasing emissions offset certificates from ClimatePartner, with whom we work closely. When you choose a climate protection project for CO2 offsetting, your customers can see your commitment to the environment on your products.
Support of a regional nature protection project
In cooperation with the Nature Park Nossentiner/Schwinzer Heide, we offer you the opportunity to support a regional nature conservation project in the direct vicinity of our production site. By transforming the monocultural pine forest into a climate-stable mixed deciduous forest, you ensure the sustainable development of the nature park. With every tree planted you compensate for CO2 emissions. Learn more about the nature protection project.
