In St Gallen Switzerland, Gallus announced a landmark pledge on 13 July 2022 to make its products carbon neutral by the end of 2022 – which once certified, is likely to see it become one of the first narrow web press manufacturers to meet this important milestone. In addition to strengthening its focus on economic, social and environmental responsibility – which includes actively working to reduce harmful carbon emissions, company-wide – Gallus has partnered with climate solutions specialist, Forliance, to offset the remaining emissions from its production process and help achieve its target within an ambitious timeline.
Gallus’s comprehensive sustainability program is already ISO 14001 certified, the international standard for environmental management systems, which ensures that organizations meet their legal obligations, adopting environmentally sound processes and taking a responsible approach to environmental management. Michael Sahm, director Climate Change Strategy, Forliance, comments, “Climate change is increasingly becoming a stress test for print manufacturers and their business models – and for some, it’s one of their biggest challenges they face. But a well-planned corporate climate solution can turn climate change related risks and headaches into tangible opportunities. For Gallus, we’re confident that we have the right strategy in place to meet its objectives by following the Kyoto protocol gold standard. This will ensure a meaningful environmental change for the business, its customers, and lay the foundations for future aspirations.”
