Conductiong a green audit at Ecoprint

Ecoprint underwent a comprehensive green audit, during which the company’s green credentials, climate impact and circularity of the business model fit were analyzed. As a result of the mapping and prioritization of development opportunities, roadmaps until the end of 2025 were developed.

The green audit has provided Ecoprint with the necessary insight into the company’s sustainability and capability to address environmental impacts, including through the assessment of its greenhouse gas footprint and the analysis of its organisation and processes.

Based on the results and recommendations, the company can improve current processes in a more sustainable way and implement new development activities, contributing to sustainable production and the promotion of the business model.
