Reka: Luxembourg’s First Climate-Neutral Print Shop

14. March 2014

Great news from the Grand Duchy! Thanks to Reka, Luxembourg now has a 100% climate-neutral print shop. And the Karnataka region in India is also reaping the benefits.

Reka: Luxembourg’s First Climate-Neutral Print Shop

Reka is Luxembourg’s first climate-neutral print shop


The Reka print shop was founded in 1936 and is one of the longest-standing in Luxembourg. In January, the company assumed a pioneering role in the Grand Duchy and became the first of its kind to be 100% climate-neutral.

Reka is enhancing its own, broad-based sustainability commitment by being the first and only 100% climate-neutral print shop in Luxembourg to achieve certification. Despite efforts to keep the carbon footprint as small as possible, there are still a few unavoidable greenhouse gas emissions in the business process. To calculate these and to offset said unavoidable CO2 emissions, Reka decided to work with MyClimateLux. Specifically this means that all direct and indirect processes at Reka have been climate-neutral since January 2014. That’s a first for Luxembourg! Reka has now opted to offset its own emissions in the biogas Karnataka project in India.

In 2010, the print shop moved to a new 3,000 m2 building in Ehlerange (Luxembourg) that was constructed in accordance with strict energy efficiency guidelines. Reka also exclusively uses eco-friendly consumables, regularly invests in new eco-technologies, sensitises its own staff in matters of recycling and waste disposal, and proactively encourages its clients to choose FSC or PEFC.
