Climate neutral printing with KBA

New service provided by the printing manufacturer with ClimatePartner

(lifePR) ( Würzburg/Munich, )
In a collaboration project with ClimatePartner, Koenig & Bauer AG (KBA) is the first printer manufacturer to offer environmentally minded customers an individualized and easytouse solution for calculating the greenhouse gas emissions generated by printing production runs.

KBA was one of ClimatePartner's early industry partners. The two companies have been working together since 2008. Effective immediately, KBA will be offering their own online platform in cooperation with the environmental protection consultancy out of Munich. Printing shops can use the platform to calculate the CO2 emitted in their printing production runs, which could then be neutralized by participating in certified climate protection projects.

Printing shops registering at 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, Director of Marketing and Communication at KBA: "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."

This new service will be launched in German and English. At ClimatePartner, the collaboration with KBA has been very well received: "Having a partnership with KBA is an important milestone for us." explains Moritz Lehmkuhl, founder and CEO of ClimatePartner GmbH.

The platform for climate neutral printing is now being actively offered simultaneously in Europe and the USA.

The energy consumed by the printing machinery implemented has a significant influence on any given print order's carbon footprint. The KBA Rapida 75E makes its mark with by being particularly economical in B2 format. KBA made this advantage transparent and easy for all to see and compare at the IPEX trade show using ecodesigns on their own printed works in combination with a green kWh meter to the right of the sheet counter on the sheet delivery
