The Calculator provides a comparison between traditional label printing processes and printing on-demand labels using a ColorWorks label printer. Based on user-defined inputs and industry assumptions verified by Smithers Information, the Calculator estimates the potential savings of using ColorWorks in terms of energy, consumables and waste materials. CO2 emissions are calculated using the European Union (27) greenhouse gas emission intensity of electricity generation (g CO2/kWh) according to EEA published 25 Oct 2023.

At legal's request in both the Terms of Use and the footnote we have included a link and the publication date of the EEA data. Both the link and the date will need to be updated yearly along with an upload of the revised data when it is released by EEA.

For the claims section (25,264 football pitches of labels, 619 tonnes of ink waste and 28.7 million kWh) we should reference the Smithers White Paper on which these are based, with an asteriks.
