Whenever a customer asks about the carbon footprint of a print project, a reliable answer is hard to come by. But now, Heidelberg CO2 Calculator, an easy-to-use, customizable, online tool can be used to determine the CO2 footprint of any print project and acquire the matching amount of carbon offsets.

The Heidelberg CO2 calculator [Opens in a new window] accounts for all steps from prepress to delivery, demonstrating how changing specifications can influence the total carbon footprint. For example, printers can plug in various “what-if” scenarios such as showing how different papers, inks, coatings, finishing options, and run lengths, will affect a project’s overall carbon footprint. According to Heidelberg, it can provide a unique perspective print buyers can’t get anywhere else, such as providing a cost for, and acquiring, corresponding carbon offsets for the print project.

The Heidelberg CO2 Calculator employs a certified carbon-balancing model that meets internationally recognized calculation methods. Suitable for offset or digital, conventional or hybrid UV processes, the Heidelberg CO2 Calculator is the first of its kind in the North American market, and the first such tool certified to comply with the latest ISO (16759) standards.

It analyzes the environmental impact of all processes used for a given project, taking into account all relevant factors, including the transport of raw materials and consumables to the plant, and delivery of the finished product to the customer, as well as recycling procedures. Most Heidelberg equipment data, including power usage, speeds etc., are preloaded; others can be added manually.
