(from left to right): Klaus-Dieter Schneider and Oliver Garbade, assistant production manager at calendar manufacturer terminic, accept the certificate from Holger Schürmann of Verband Druck & Medien Nord Ost e.V. for the successfully passed audit for participation in the climate initiative of the printing and media associations.
Since 2012, terminic GmbH has participated in the climate initiative of the printing and media associations, offering its customers the option of climate-neutral production through the "Print CO2compensated" seal. The calendar manufacturer has once again successfully passed the annual audit carried out by Verband Druck & Medien Nord Ost e.V.
The goal of the nationwide climate initiative is to minimise CO2in everyday working life. Once a year, the association checks compliance with the sustainability requirements defined in the climate protection model. In addition to pure production criteria, they include, among other things, checking the use of materials and machines, their consumption and disposal, as well as the energy requirements and the fuel consumption of individual employees. In addition, the proper execution and documentation of all CO2-compensated calendar orders must be successfully demonstrated.
"CO2inevitably arises with every print job: through paper and board production, through transport and, of course, through printing and processing itself. That is why we attach particular importance to using resource-saving materials and a low-emission Made in Germany production. The successful audit confirms our efforts to continuously optimise our environmental performance," says a delighted terminic Managing Director Wolfgang Rolla du Rosey.
By its own account, terminic is among the leading calendar manufacturers in Europe and specialises in the production of high-quality promotional calendars. The portfolio today includes more than 30 calendar models with calendars in more than 35 languages: wall calendars with 3-, 4-, 5-, 6-, 7- or 8-month overviews as well as various table and poster calendars.
