Trees can move mountains.

CO₂ is one of the key perpetrators of climate change. That’s why it’s up to all of us to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, or even to avoid them completely, if possible. The latter is only partially possible for the production of catalogues, brochures and many other activities. The solution until such a time as it is fully possible is called CO₂ compensation. Just one single tree can convert an average of 100 kg of CO₂ into biomass in a year. How much could you achieve with an entire forest? In 2011, we became the first ever printing company to found its own in-house reforestation company – Evers ReForest. It showed us that CO₂ compensation isn’t actually that complicated.

Reforestation is the most effective measure against climate change.

In autumn 2019, a study by ETH Zurich found that nothing fights climate change as effectively as the reforestation of trees. According to calculations, new forests could bind two thirds of man-made CO2 emissions – in this way, the goal set by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees could be achieved. But for an effective forest to be created in the long term, the steps are necessary – and they are not just done on the side. On the following pages we will be happy to show you which steps are necessary to create a complete forest.
