Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 106 playing key role in CO2 cuts at Vogel Druck
Vogel Druck und Medienservice GmbH (Vogel Druck) in Höchberg, Germany – part of the Bertelsmann Printing Group (BPG) – is aiming to cut its CO2 emissions to net zero by the end of 2022. In pursuing this aim, Vogel Druck is supporting the goal of the Bertelsmann Group to achieve climate neutrality by 2030. Vogel Druck intends to meet its net-zero target by completely avoiding CO2 emissions in certain areas, reducing them in others, and offsetting a portion by buying emissions certificates accredited by VCS (Verified Carbon Standard) and Gold Standard.
Vogel Druck has so far achieved considerable CO2 reductions through its own efforts. The company’s Managing Director, Jörg Kuchenmeister, has the figures to prove it: “Thanks to investment in state-of-the-art production technology and infrastructure, Vogel Druck was able to cut its CO2 emissions by 41 percent over the three years from 2018 to 2021. That’s the equivalent of 3,479 metric tons.” Emissions are set to be reduced by a further considerable amount in the current year by switching to 100 percent green electricity and installing new climate-control technology (an absorption refrigerator).
