Sustainable Printing for a Sustainable Olympics: The Eco-Friendly Benefits of Digital Print

As the world gears up for the 2024 Paris Olympics, sustainability is at the forefront of everyone’s minds. The Paris Olympics have committed to being the greenest Games in history focusing on reducing carbon emissions, promoting renewable energy, and minimising waste. This commitment to sustainability resonates with our mission at BakPac and Baker Labels, where we can harness the power of digital print technologies to produce environmentally friendly pouches and labels.

The Paris Olympics and Sustainability

The Paris Olympics have set ambitious goals to create a positive environmental legacy:

Carbon Neutral Games: The organisers aim to offset all carbon emissions, with a 50% reduction in the carbon footprint compared to previous Games.

Renewable Energy: All venues will be powered by renewable energy sources.

Zero Waste: The Games strive for zero waste to landfill by maximizing recycling and reusing materials.

These initiatives serve as an inspiration for businesses worldwide, including ours, to adopt and promote sustainable practices.

The Environmental Benefits of Digital Print Technologies

Digital printing offers several eco-friendly advantages, aligning perfectly with the sustainability goals of the Paris Olympics:

Reduced Waste: Traditional printing methods often result in significant waste due to overproduction and setup requirements. Digital printing, however, allows for precise print runs, meaning we produce only what is needed. This drastically reduces waste and conserves resources.

Lower Carbon Footprint: Digital printing requires fewer resources and less energy compared to conventional printing. It eliminates the need for printing plates, reducing the initial setup energy and material consumption. The result is a smaller carbon footprint for each print job.

Waterless Printing Process: Unlike traditional printing, digital printing processes do not require water for ink transfer or plate cleaning, thereby conserving water and reducing chemical discharge into the environment.

Sustainable Materials: At BakPac and Baker Labels, we encourage the use of eco-friendly materials. Our digital print technologies are compatible with a range of sustainable substrates, including recycled and biodegradable materials, further reducing environmental impact.

Eco-Friendly Inks: HP Indigo ElectroInk is safe and non-toxic according to the European REACH standard and the FDA.The ElectroInk complies with EC Regulation 1907/2006 (European REACH standard) and doesn’t contain hazardous air pollutants according to the FDA
