Our steps in sustainability

  • AgriCard:
    One of our most recent innovations is AgriCard, a material made from agricultural waste. This material is not only recyclable but also fully compostable. AgriCard helps us reduce waste and supports the circular economy. Learn more about AgriCard.
  • Sustainable Technologies:
    Our modern printing processes are designed to optimize both efficiency and quality while minimizing our environmental impact. For example, our new printing presses reduce material and energy consumption.
  • Trees for All:
    We support reforestation projects through a partnership with Trees for All, an organization dedicated to planting trees both locally and internationally. This partnership enables us to actively offset the CO2 emissions resulting from our production processes. Through this collaboration, we contribute to creating new forests and restoring existing ones, which not only promotes biodiversity but also helps combat climate change.
  • ClimateCalc:
    Elburg-Smit uses ClimateCalc, a certified European software system, to calculate the CO2 emissions per order and for the company as a whole. This system helps us accurately measure and manage our ecological footprint. Through ClimateCalc, we can monitor our sustainability goals. We also offer this to our customers, allowing us to calculate the CO2 emissions for specific orders and suggest ways to offset them, thereby supporting our customers in achieving their own sustainability objectives.
