ClimatePartner
Our printing is climate-neutral.

Active climate protection has never been this easy! Our footprint is GREEN. What about yours?

We use ClimatePartner for CO2-neutral printing. We calculate the emissions values for every selected print order and then show the compensation amount - between 2.0 and 5.0 percent. With this amount, we balance out the negative CO2 household in an understandable manner and commit ourselves to a climate protection project of your choice.

The process is absolutely transparent. Your packaging order displays the attractive ClimatePartner logo and is provided with an individual tracking number. This means everyone can view the climate protection project you are supporting on-line.

ISO 50001
Internationally acknowledged.

For its sophisticated energy management system, Offsetdruckerei Schwarzach was one of the first companies in the region to receive the certification according to the international standard ISO 50001

This helps companies  developing additional energy potential as a result of the implementation of ISO 50001 and are hence reducing the CO2 emissions even further. Every energy flow in a company is recorded and evaluated for this process. This analysis then reveals both the technical as well as the process and organisation-oriented measures that are being implemented for the long-term improvement of energy efficiency. With this certification the Vorarlberg manufacturer of fine cardboard packaging and labels is underlining its pioneering role in the need to be environmentally conscious.      

FSC®
In retrospect.

FSC

Offsetdruckerei Schwarzach GmbH is certified for the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) as of the beginning of May 2009.

FSC® stands for the traceability and the respectful handling of wood as an available raw material, which originates from exemplary managed forests where the planning is controlled, certified and conserves resources.

While PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) stands for a considerate management of forests, FSC® also guarantees the evaluation and testing according to internationally agreed environmental, social and economic standards. This becomes visible for the consumer as a result of the imprint of the respective logo on the cardboard sleeve.
