SOS – sustainable print

Every bePartner we work with is verified and certified by us. These partners have the same mindset as beMatrix when it comes to sustainability: Become carbon neutral, or at least limit and reduce the CO2 released during production. Defining, measuring, and offsetting emissions are the key concepts at play. Here are some examples of the initiatives our Print bePartners are working on and which authorities exist in different European countries.


Use ISO standards

Standards are best practices. They describe the best way to do something such as making a product, delivering a service, or managing a process. Most of our Print bePartners follow strict quality and environmental standards in accordance with ISO 9001 quality management and ISO 14001 environmental management. Check what they can do for you.

Imprim’vert® (FR)

bePartners Ateliers Cassandre and La Romaine of France both achieved the Imprim'vert® label. The aim of this label is to reduce the environmental impact of printing activities by encouraging them to take practical steps in this process. Thanks to wide-ranging collaboration between numerous players in the printing industry, this label has established a network of operational and pragmatic skills for helping print businesses innovate and adapt to changes in their environment.

Carbon Neutral Company

Together with ClimatePartner, Print bePartner Moss of Germany defined, measured, and offset the carbon emissions related to their plant operations. This includes emissions from sources such as energy and heating, business travel, and employee commuting related to operations.  

Their focus is the same as ours: first in-house carbon reduction, then reducing as much as possible of various other contributing emissions through environmental enhancement projects. Check their efforts on the ClimatePartner page; it’s really inspiring!

Of course, other Print bePartners are also making efforts regarding their ecological responsibility. PPS of Germany invests in certified climate protection projects from KlimaInvest Green Concepts GmbH. This way, they fully offset the emitted CO² emissions that are made during production. Starting from January 1st, 2020 to December 31st, 2023, PPS managed to offset at least 632 metric tons of CO² emissions with a positive impact on the climate.
