Our commitment to climate protection

We strive to balance the CO2 emissions in the production of our print products (flyers, brochures, etc.) at the Willich site through climate protection projects. Therefore, we buy many climate-neutral products in which all CO2 emissions, which are unavoidable in the process chain, are calculated and offset through recognized climate protection projects. Our goal is to achieve this offset for all our print products.
