NEUSTADT AN DER AISCH and MUNICH, Germany, January 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Online print shop offers customers transparent carbon accounting and offsetting
Onlineprinters GmbH, one of the largest online print shops in Europe, offers its customers, in cooperation with the climate protection specialist ClimatePartner, the possibility to produce its print products in a climate neutral way. For this purpose, the carbon emissions of every single printing order are accounted automatically and, upon request, offset with the support of internationally recognised carbon offset projects. This certified service (TÜV Austria (Technical Inspection Authority)) has been available since the beginning of 2013 for the customers of the online print shop under the German brand diedruckerei.de and the international brand Onlineprinters in 30 European countries.
"As one of the leading European online print shops, we are aware of our ecological responsibility", says Martin Betz, Technical Operations Manager of Onlineprinters GmbH. The numerous measures in environmental and climate protection include, but are not limited to, consistent recycling of ink and toner cartridges, waste prevention and strict separation of waste, hot water and room heat recovery, FSC® and PEFC certification and various other measures in prepress, production and further processing. In cooperation with the climate protection specialist ClimatePartner, the online print shop http://www.onlineprinters.com has further extended its commitment to environmental protection by offering "climate neutral printing - support of carbon offset projects". For more information, go to http://www.climatepartner.com.
Climate neutral printing orders - easy and transparent
"Based on our operating data, we have accounted the emissions generated in the printing process and thus calculated the carbon footprint of Onlineprinters", Martin Betz explains. For the customer, the emissions incurred with every single printing order are automatically and individually accounted and shown in the online shop. "The customer can decide about the climate impact of his printing order himself", says Betz. "At the touch of a button", he can offset the accounted emissions by the ClimatePartner process certified by TÜV Austria by means of internationally recognised climate offset projects. The extra costs for the offsetting come to only about 0.9 percent of the production costs, which demonstrates the high standard of Onlineprinters corporate environmental protection.
Customer certificate and logo certify climate neutral printing
The customer can download his certificate confirming the offsetting of greenhouse gases through additional climate protection measures. The print ID logo "ClimatePartner - climate neutral" is available for download from a logo generator and can be integrated into the printing data. This is an important service for our business customers who wish to furnish evidence within the framework of their compliance guidelines that they use climate neutral print products", says Betz.
