On 11-11-2011 Zalsman was the first company in the Netherlands to certify its Carbon Footprint. We try to emit as little CO2 as possible and compensate what we do emit through a forestryproject in Indonesia. We plant trees in exhausted ricefields on Sumatra. Not just any tree, but fruit- and nutbearing trees like nutmeg and pepper. This way we can also boost the local economy. The trees catch the CO2, and help gain income for the villagers at the same time.
Of course we don't plant them ourselves, we're busy, printing. Especially for this goal we started a collaboration with Paul Burgers from CO2Operate. If you like to know more about our environmental care system and durable procurement, please see our Environment & quality-webpage.
