Procos stands for sustainable efficiency and innovative packaging concepts. For us sustainability is of utmost importance and we have defined actively contributing to energy and climate protection as one of our long-term goals. We do not perceive acting in an environmentally conscious manner as an obligation: we believe it to be a necessity, which has been firmly anchored in our corporate policy since the company was founded in 1998. For example, we aim to use less plastic material or avoid it completely. We also take all the necessary steps to reduce the CO2 footprint of our packaging and offset the CO2 emissions we do produce by investing in suitable projects.
ClimatePartner – one of the world’s leading climate protection consultancy firms – is helping Procos to implement climate-neutral packaging by examining Procos’ CO2 production and transport balances as well as conducting targeted projects.
It is not possible for us to avoid CO2 emissions in the production process completely but, with your help, it is possible for us to neutralise them. That is why we provide you with the opportunity to select carbon-neutral printing. If you choose this option, we will calculate the CO2 value of your order and make a corresponding donation to an environmental protection project to compensate for these emissions. Through active measures, such as reforestation, we keep our environment in balance.
Using our Footprint Manager, we calculate the carbon emissions generated from your print orders in accordance with ISO 16759 and offset them via a certified project of your choice. For each climate-neutral printing order you will receive a special label displaying an ID number, which you can then attach to the printed product. This allows the offset to be traced in a transparent manner in a process that has been certified by the technical inspection authority TÜV Austria.
The emission values are calculated per print order and a compensation amount is specified. The offset amount corresponds to approximately 1.5% to 3.0% of the order value and is invested in a climate protection project of your choice.
Clean energy, clean air, clean drinking water. Time for work or for school. Healthy forests full of different animal species. Nothing can be taken for granted. It is essential that we find ways to align our business with our social responsibilities.
Carbon offset projects help other people in this world to enjoy better living conditions. Since they also demonstrably save greenhouse gas emissions, they protect the climate. By supporting these projects, you can offset the emissions that you currently cannot avoid generating.
