CALCULATE YOUR CO2 EMISSIONS

Print For Nature compensates the CO2 emissions of your graphic production at no cost to you.

At Print For Nature, we have created a tool we call Eco Calculator that does not pretend to have, nor does it have, any scientific rigor. 

The only purpose is to make our customers aware of how their graphic production affects CO2 emissions.  They can choose between different materials and, subsequently, compensate these emissions in programs that favor sustainability. 

The aim is to minimize the impact of our work on society and provide added value to our customers by issuing a certificate that allows them to strengthen their marketing campaigns and compensate their carbon footprint.

The cost of the compensation is borne by Print For Nature through its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program.

PIONEER IN 100% SUSTAINABLE PRINTING

Sustainable
graphic production

Print For Nature is a pioneer in the market in offering sustainable alternatives in graphic production in a credible way. We make our clients aware of the environmental impact caused by their productions.

We offer sustainable solutions to compensate CO2 emissions in a responsible way.

We plant trees. We create a forest.

WE HAVE ALREADY CALCULATED THE EMISSIONS OF YOUR PRODUCTION.
NOW ... WE PLANT TREES!

Trees

To compensate 0.8 tons of CO2 we plant a tree on behalf of your company and send you the corresponding certificate according to your annual, quarterly, monthly criteria…

Trees are essential for water, air, fauna…

Water

The water purification process is a very important aspect since trees purify rainwater by filtering it through their roots.

This process has three phases: evaporation, condensation and fusion. All this prevents soil erosion and reduces the risk of flooding.

Air

Trees are the lungs of the planet for one simple reason: they produce oxygen, 4000 m2 of forest produce the equivalent of the consumption of 12 people in a year.

In addition to absorbing CO2, trees also absorb harmful gases and pollutants such as ammonia, ozone, carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxides and nitrogen oxides.

Fauna

Insects, small invertebrates, mammals… 80% of terrestrial biodiversity inhabits our forests. Up to 100 tropical species per day could be lost without the preservation of tropical forests

Climate Change

Trees cool the air around them by providing shade and give off H2O droplets that evaporate and cool the area, known as transpiration cooling.

Each year it is estimated that our forests capture 2,000,000,000 (trillion) tons of CO2, about 1/3 of all the CO2 we produce by burning fossil fuels, and act as large carbon stores.

Medicinal properties

Both our pharmaceutical industry and traditional medicine obtain important resources from their flowers, bark, leaves and roots.

 

They create a more economically just world

Many of the communities at risk of extreme poverty live near a forest area, from which they obtain food, water, fuel… It is estimated that up to 28% of the resources in tropical and subtropical countries come from their forests.

PRINT FOR NATURE COLLABORATES WITH THE TREE NATION PLATFORM TO REFOREST THE PLANET WITH YOUR TREES AND COMPENSATE THE CO2 EMISSIONS OF YOUR GRAPHIC PRODUCTION.

Footprint carbon

Climate change is one of the great challenges of the 21st century. It is caused by the emission of Greenhouse Gases (GHG) and, in particular, carbon dioxide (CO2). The first step to mitigate global warming is to inventory and quantify the amount of emissions that are released into the atmosphere due to our daily activities or the commercialization of a product, i.e. the environmental impact and ecological footprint of each human action.

For this measurement we have an internationally accepted parameter: the Carbon Footprint, defined in 2008 by the UK Carbon Trust as “the total greenhouse gases (GHG) emitted directly or indirectly by an individual, organization, event or product”.

Once the size of the footprint, quantified in CO2 equivalent emissions, is known, it is possible to implement a strategy to reduce it. From this perspective, the carbon footprint represents a contribution by authorities, socially responsible organizations and citizens to environmental awareness and the adoption of more sustainable practices.
