Certifiering

ClimateCalc

We want to make a more environmentally friendly footprint!

Göteborgstryckeriet has taken another step in our environmental work, so it is very gratifying that we are now certified according to ClimatCalc. This means in particular that we keep track of and can report the carbon footprint of Göteborgstryckeriet (raw materials, chemicals, electricity, heat and freight).

How does this affect you?

When you want help with a quote or production of a printed matter with us, we can make a calculation of the carbon footprint of your print job. As soon as you know what specification and edition your product should have and where it is to be shipped, we can make a calculation that is verified by ClimateCalc. The result is a report with calculated climate impact according to the European graphic standard, defined by the European trade association Intergraf. Now we can help you calculate how you can reduce your printing material’s climate footprint.

What is ClimateCalc?

ClimateCalc is designed to provide exact information on the climate impact of the individual graphic product in a life cycle perspective. The purchaser of printed matter and the graphic company are dependent on this information in order to make a prioritised effort to minimize the climate impact before any neutralizing or compensation.

To calculate the climate impact of a specific graphic product, data representing the specific raw materials must be included in the production of the printed matter together with data representing the graphic company producing the printed matter. ClimateCalc provides such a calculation basis.

ISO 14064-1, ISO 16759 and GHG Protocol

The ClimateCalc calculation tool is in compliance with ISO 14064-1. This ISO-norm defines how to calculate and report greenhouse gas emissions on organizational level. The compliance has been verified by SGS, an international recommended company within inspection, verification, testing and certification.

The ClimateCalc calculation tool is in compliance with ISO 16759. This ISO-norm defines how to calculate greenhouse gas emissions of printed products. The compliance has been verified by SGS, an international recommended company within inspection, verification, testing and certification.

ClimateCalc was compiled according to the guidelines in the international standard, The Green House Gas Protocol (GHG Protocol), which is published by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development and the World Resources Institute. The standard is accessible on www.ghgprotocol.org. According to the GHG Protocol the emission of greenhouse gasses must be divided into three scopes:

  1. Direct emissions of greenhouse gases from the company by for instance burning of oil or gas in own boilers or vehicles.
  2. Indirect emissions of greenhouse gases from production of purchased energy such as electricity and district heating.
  3. Other indirect emissions of greenhouse gases from for instance production of raw material, purchased transportation services, and the employee's commuting to and from work.
