Ecology and environment protection

"Green" labels and packaging: in matters of protecting our environment we don't compromise!

Our world faces a lot of environmental problems: air and water pollution is happening each and every day, natural resources are dwindling fast. That's why it's more important than ever to plan, work and produce  environmentally friendly and use all resources wisely and efficiently. As a manufacturer, we feel it is our duty to create environmentally friendly solutions for your labels and packaging – for a world that’s still worth living in 100 years from now!


Systematic Environmental Protection

We are determined to help protect the environment: that is why we have integrated the environmental management system EMAS into our company structures. It is the world's most sophisticated system for sustainable environmental management and helps with the continuous improvement of our environmental performance,  it also makes and transparently for you.

This includes:

  • consistent recordings of our environmental performance
  • meeting our environmental targets and improving our operating figures
  • annual environmental statements to document the implementation of our targets, validated by a state-supervised, independent environmental verifier

Do it yourself

The Töpfer Kulmbach GmbH is proud of developing our own  environmentally friendly processes: heavy metal-free special printing inks, returnable systems for transport packaging and much more.

A good example: water protection. In bottle cleaning systems with susceptible technology, a particularly high ink adhesion of printing inks to label paper may be required. With our own DFH techniques, we use gravure printing to optimize the ink adhesion properties of your labels and minimize the amount of protection added to the cleaning solution.


Involving both our employees and the public, we continuously improve our environmental performance and, of course, always comply with all legal regulations.

Our products and materials come only from sources that promote responsible forest management.
