hubergroup offers products for offset printing certified according to the Cradle to Cradle

In order to obtain this certification, the independent environmental institute EPEA assessed the ink manufacturing process with regard to its eco-management relating to responsible handling of energy and water resources, and hubergroup’s corporate social responsibility.

hubergroup has developed a wide product range for offset printing tested and approved according to the Cradle to Cradle standards.

The Cradle to Cradle certificate for hubergroup Eco Offset Ink Premium.

The environmental label Cradle to Cradle follows the concept to certify products that can feed back into biological or technical cycles when their life cycle has come to an end. With regard to print production, finished print products will either be recycled or introduced into the biological cycle as compostable waste.

In order to obtain this certification, the independent environmental institute EPEA assessed the ink manufacturing process with regard to its eco-management relating to responsible handling of energy and water resources, and hubergroup’s corporate social responsibility.

The ink cans are marked with the Cradle to Cradle eco label.

The assessed and approved printing inks are based on renewable vegetable oils, are formulated cobalt-free and meet the deinkability criteria in line with test method Ingede 11 along with the specifications of the European Recovered Paper Council (ERPC). The portfolio includes process and special colour inks for conventional offset printing.
