Sustainability at Pixum.  Not just a word
Sustainability at Pixum.
Not just a word

Responsible management of our forests resources is more important now than ever, which is why sustainability is a great part of our vision.

Pixum is 100% carbon neutral

Since July 2020, our printing labs and our headquarters in Cologne, Germany, have been completely carbon neutral. This means that Pixum compensates unavoidable CO2 emissions of the both locations through certified climate protection projects.

We work together with the environmental organization in Germany called ClimatePartner to counterbalance emissions from both production and office processes. Together we support a wind power project in Thailand which is certified by an independent third party. Since 2021, we have been able to compensate for 11.000.000 kg.

Climate protection project in Nong Wang, Thailand

Sustainablility for the environment

The wind farm project in the North East of Thailand compensates for CO2-emissions, since clean energy generated from wind power is injected into the national power grid. This helps raise the country's percentage of renewable energy and improve the energy security. The wind farm encompasses 45 2,3 MW-wind turbines which add up to an overall performance of 103,5 MW (expected average of 232,5 GWh per year).

What does 'carbon neutral manufacturing' mean?

The companies own CO2 footprint is being calculated annually so that it is easy get to know the exact amount and compensate it. We at Pixum can be sure to balance out the actual amount of greenhouse gases being emitted in the manufacturing process, in logistics or in administration. This is what working on climate protection projects helps us to reach. We take responsibility and make a meaningful contribution to climate protection. Also, when it comes to electricity, Pixum has been using electricity from 100% renewable energies for the Cologne office for years already.

Transparency matters as well

The regulations of the FSC® require that the entire processing and trade chain from the forest to the wholesaler is fully certified. By purchasing FSC® products, the certified company can make a direct contribution to improving the world's forestry.

The suitability of a certified company is checked annually by an independent certifier. The data collected during the company audit form the basis for the decision on giving or prolonging the certification. FSC® certificates are valid for a period of five years.
