WHOLE OR NOT: MAHLWERCK PORZELLAN IS 100% CLIMATE-NEUTRAL.
Since January 2018, Mahlwerck Porzellan has been carbon-neutral with 100%. No ifs and buts.
To do this, we have made the entire company and our products climate-neutral.
Because we want to take responsibility.
Therefore, we also take over the complete costs.
The sustainable promotional products and finishes from Mahlwerck will not cost a cent more.
Economies also at
For a long time, they should be as inexpensive as possible - the giveaways and small gifts for customers and prospects. Unfortunately, most of these so-called give-aways are pretty short-lived. This is one of the reasons why the promotional products and merchandising sector is a difficult terrain in terms of climate protection.
Environmental awareness is rising among consumers
Due to the increasing environmental awareness among the population and the now noticeable climate change, the way of thinking has changed for several years. That's why companies expect climate-friendly action and social awareness. Sustainability has thus become an important topic in many marketing departments.
Premium products are used longer so are inherently more sustainable
Mahlwerck - a solution for climate protection.
In terms of sustainability, Mahlwerck has long been a pioneer in the industry. Porcelain is inherently durable. That's why cups and mugs have always been a relatively sustainable promotional product solution. As the inventor of Coffee2Go made of porcelain and Supplier of reusable solutions For many years, Mahlwerck Porzellan has been setting standards in sustainable corporate policy. Our next, logical step was obvious: our business processes and production should also be sustainable.
Climate neutral - the next step in climate protection
Logo mug, brand cup, Coffee to Go porcelain mug and Co. can be reused almost infinitely. Now the entire manufacturing process CO2-neutral should be handled. This is the case since January 2018! We work 100% climate-neutral and thus contribute to a further element of sustainable business.
Principles for compensation of emissions
If you want to produce 100% climate-neutral, which is impossible at first, this is done - globally consistent - according to the following principle:
All processes and consumptions in the company are first recorded and it is determined how many tonnes of CO2 each individual consumption and each individual process causes. For us, this is 900 tons per year.
Then you buy so-called CO2 certificates from the UNO. These must be imagined as securities. Each certificate has a specific price and represents a certain amount (tonnes) of CO2.
So we bought a corresponding number of certificates for our 900 tons that are valid for two years. The money we have paid for it is passed on by the UN to certified projects in the so-called Third World. This money will invest in advanced technologies there. Thereby exactly these 900 CO2 tons are saved for two years, which we caused here by our existence.
Exactly these are the following projects:
- The Jari / Amapá REDD + project is a project to promote forest protection and reduce potential greenhouse gas emissions. It is based on a local economic development model.
- The Gold Standard climate protection project Godawari Power and Ispat Limited (GPIL) enables the operation of an 20 MW biomass plant in Siltara, Raipur. As a renewable energy source, biogenic residues, mainly based on used rice husks, are used. Since biomass is a CO2-neutral energy source, the production of biogas does not actually produce any CO2 emissions.
- The wind energy project in Maharashtra / India helps to prevent the burning of fossil fuels.
- The Bujagali Hydropower Project is located on the Victoria Nile in the Republic of Uganda. It generates renewable energy at the Bujagali waterfall, and also helps to reduce the country's blatant energy emergency.
Sustainable integration in the company.
It is only indirectly about the production in the Czech Republic itself! For example, we use heat recovery to save energy. Without these measures, the CO2 footprint of our production would not be at 900 tonnes of CO2, but much higher. We will publish exactly how our measures there look in May if we - as one of very few companies in our industry - publish our sustainability report. (Currently, companies as of 500 employees are only required to publish a sustainability report).
Sustainability is developing more and more traction
100% KLIMANEUTAL PRODUCED - this logo allows Mahlwerck Porzellan to label its cups, cups and dishes. In this way, we also meet the wishes of many customers and users - for ecologically sound and durable promotional products.
Many companies rely on ecology, environmental protection or even incorporate these aspects into their corporate philosophy. For these companies, we have exactly the right solution for their promotional products with our climate-neutral products.
