Under the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, all signatories should make significant efforts to reduce carbon and pollutant emissions.
By introducing modern production innovations and increasing the possibilities of consistently using flexible packaging, print house Printela strives to be environmentally friendly and encourages customers to choose environmentally friendly packaging materials.
Environmental responsibility starts with the packaging process itself and the amount of resources needed to produce it.
Our company has invested in a new generation of high-tech printers HP Indigo 20000 and HP Indigo 6900. This gives our customers the opportunity to take advantage of digitally printed packaging and labelling solutions to gain a fair market advantage.
Flexible packaging has 5-10 times less impact on the environment compared to rigid packaging (glass, aluminium, HDPE, PET). Flexible packaging requires fewer resources, is also lighter, takes up less space on the shelf and therefore, reduces storage costs and fuel consumption during transportation.
Digital flexible packaging printing has many sustainability advantages over conventional printing (flexographic, rotogravure).
Digital printing is more economical when printing up to 3000 m²,when comparing the same amount to flexographic printing methods and up to 5000 m² than rotogravure.
In addition to the savings, digital printing contributes 65% less to global warming, 60% less photochemical ozone concentrations, uses 37% less energy and 45% less water (compared to 3000 m² digital and flexographic printing).
Comparing 5,000 m² of digital and rotogravure printing, the environmental impact of digital printing technologies is 60-80% lower. This effect is much greater when printing smaller quantities.
There are other environmental benefits that are less obvious and more difficult to measure:
Overall, the benefits of digital printing, such as broad marketing opportunities and cost-effectiveness for small and medium-sized printing, are greater.
