A new, free, online self-assessment tool from Heidelberg helps printers understand their environmental performance and could help them identify additional areas for improvement. The Environmental Self-Assessment is the latest building block in Heidelberg’s many sustainability initiatives, which also include a CO2 Calculator (to determine the CO2 footprint of any print project); CO2 neutral equipment; and special “Eco” product lines of the Saphira Consumables range; in addition to equipment choices and upgrade offers. For easy accessibility, the Self-Assessment is divided into three areas, following the set-up and terminology of the Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP).
