We collaborate with different printing companies to produce our print products. Here you will find a selection of projects supported by climate-neutral print production.
Reforestation of Bolivian Forests with PRIMAKLIMA e.V.
In cooperation with PRIMAKLIMA e.V., winkler supports the planting and preservation of forests in Bolivia.
In parts of South America, the presence of climate change is much more apparent in some regions than in others. The population consists mainly of small farmers who due to regular flooding have very little arable land available. In order to gain access to more arable land and make a living, the farmers feel they are forced to clear areas of the rainforest.
PRIMAKLIMA e.V. contributes to teaching local farmers new techniques which they can use to generate sustainable crop yields. They also work to reforest cleared areas one tract of land at a time.
Print & Forest
With Print&Forest, an initiative of Konradin Druck GmbH, trees are planted in Paraguay, South America to compensate for the output of CO2 during print production. Exact documentation is thereby provided as to how many trees are planted for each printed product. Environmentally friendly paper is also used to produce printed products, as well as printing inks made from renewable raw materials.
In addition, winkler manages selected climate-neutral projects in collaboration with KonradinHeckel.
Forest Protection in Freiburg
Printing companies Bechtle Druck & Service and Druckhaus Waiblingen are involved in the ClimatePartner initiative for realizing climate-neutral print production. Specifically, the Bergwaldprojekt e.V. in Freiburg is supported together with winkler. The project is committed to protecting native forests with the help of volunteers and professionals. Among other things, fir trees are protected against browsing damage by game, rock biotopes with old tree populations are preserved, and landscape conservation is carried out around the summit of Schauinsland.
The climate initiative of the printing an media associations
The GO Druck Media printing company has joined the climate initiative of the printing and media associations. This initiative supports climate protection projects by ARKTIK, an independent climate protection company that aims to reduce CO2 emissions. Among others, projects include the expansion of renewable energies in Turkey, production of efficient cooking stoves requiring less fuel for households in Mali, in addition to reforestation of tropical exotic woods in Costa Rica.
winkler also manages selected climate-neutral projects in collaboration with GO Druck.
