Intergraf's standard defines the minimum parameters to be included when carbon calculations for both printing companies and for printed products are made. The special characteristic of Intergraf's standard is that, in addition to determining the scope for calculation, it also clearly describes when average data can be used and when product-specific data must be used in a product calculation. Compliance has been verified by SGS, an internationally recommended company within inspection, verification, testing and certification.

Intergraf's standard has classified the emissions in accordance with the principles defined in the international Green House Gas Protocol.
