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.
Shipping printed materials inevitably produces damaging emissions that harm the environment. To improve our CO2 balance and to do something in favor of climate protection, we use the GoGreen initiative from Deutsche Post when shipping our letters and advertising brochures. The principle behind the project is to calculate the greenhouse gas emissions of the (letter) shipments and to neutralize them in approved, international climate protection projects. This is done, for example, by the Deutsche Post DHL Group providing highly efficient stoves to households in Lesotho in Africa. Since firewood would otherwise be burned there to heat up food, the environmentally damaging emissions are thereby reduced and the people are protected from toxic smoke. The demand for wood likewise drops, which also decreases deforestation.
