The project

The Chlorophyll project stems from a strong desire of Tipoesse: to safeguard and support the environment.

As a printing house, we have a high paper and energy usage, so we went outside the box in our industry and thought about the future.

Our Green Revolution started with the collaboration of Treedom, which allowed us to cultivate a small tree plantation in different parts of the world, and the inclusion of sustainable elements within the Tipoesse reality such as photovoltaic panels and LED printing presses.

Chlorophyll for Tipoesse, is not only important, but necessary.

We want a greener and fairer Planet.
So, what better way than to plant trees?

Together with Treedom, we have grown them remotely in Africa, Latin America, Asia and Italy; they are planted directly by local farmers and contribute to environmental, social and economic benefits.

Each tree has its own online page from which it is possible to follow their evolution, history and precise geographical location. To date, Tipoesse has 100 trees planted with -14 tonnes of CO2.


From the Greek 'Theobroma cacao', its meaning is 'Food of the Gods'.
The cacao tree is a member of the Malvaceae family and is native to the tropical regions of Central and South America, the African continent, western Cameroon, Congo, Nigeria and the Ivory Coast, where large plantations are located.

Its leaves are shiny, oblong, drooping and bright green. The flowering is continuous, but out of a hundred flowers, only one will turn into fruit, from which cocoa mass and cocoa butter are obtained; after extraction, they are used in the production of chocolate.


From the alphabet of the Aztec people, the name Avocado comes from the word 'ahuacati', the fruit of love. The plant belongs to the Lauraceae family and is cultivated in all tropical countries, South Africa, the USA and lately also in Italy.

The avocado has a mainly dark green skin, with only one large seed inside. The flesh is soft, slightly greenish and rich in beneficial fats. The fruits ripen after several months and are born directly on the branches of the plant.


It is thought that the word 'banana' may come from the Arabic word banan, meaning 'finger'.
The plant is native to South-East Asian countries and belongs to the Musaceae family. The banana tree is very fast growing and can reach up to three metres in height; its leaves are very long and wide.

The fruit, known and sought after all over the world for its characteristic taste, tends to develop in clusters or, rather, in characteristic helmets, usually yellow, pink or white in colour.


From the Persian term لیمو, which generically denotes citrus fruits, comes the term 'lemon'.
The lemon tree is native to India and Indochina; according to some scholars, it is a natural hybrid between the cedar and the lime.

Its leaves are alternate, reddish when young and then dark green above and paler below, usually elliptical.
The sweetly perfumed flowers may be solitary or in pairs with a violet petal edge. Normally the skin of lemons is yellow, but it can also be green or white.


Papaya is native to a geographical area in Central America and its name is derived from the Aztec language of its place of origin.
It is a herbaceous plant belonging to the 'Caricaceae' family, a small group of liana plants.

Eating papaya is good for your health, has few calories and many positive effects on the body; the fruit is a large ovoid berry shaped like a pumpkin or melon, yellow-orange when ripe, green when unripe. The flesh is juicy and sweet.


Albizia was introduced to Europe by Filippo degli Albizzi, from whom it takes its current name. It belongs to the Mimosaceae family and comes from the tropical zones of Africa, Asia and Australia.

The plant looks like a small tree between 5 and 12 metres tall, with light grey bark and bipinnate leaves.
Its flowers are similar to those of mimosas, are fragrant, spike-shaped or feather-shaped; colours range from white to yellow and pink.


The name Acacia is derived from the Greek word 'akis' meaning 'thorn'.
The plant is a member of the legume family and is cultivated in Australia, Africa, South Asia and South America.

The flowers of the acacia are the most precious part of the tree. They are white, hermaphrodite and are found in raceme-like inflorescences.
While the fruit, resembles a flattened, reddish-brown legume.


Guava, with its scientific name Psidium Guajava, is a plant of the Myrtaceae family, native to Central and South America that is widespread and cultivated, even in pots, in all areas with a mild climate.

The fruit is very refreshing and has a soft melon-like flesh, with a sour aftertaste, but tending towards sweet; its colour varies according to the varieties cultivated.

Guava flowers are the same as those of the Myrtle, but much larger; they are fragrant and have a corolla composed of five wide white petals. The leaves are medium to large, tend to be oval, with conspicuous veins.


The coffee plant is part of the botanical family Rubiaceae, whose scientific name is Coffea; there are about 100 different types, but only the seeds of some are commercially referred to as the various species that give us the aromatic coffee drink.

The fruit of the plant is called a 2-seeded 'drupe' or more commonly called a cherry and its seeds are the coffee beans.


Tipoesse wanted to cut energy costs by implanting 168 photovoltaic panels on the roof. This means that as much as 99 kg of CO2 emissions were avoided, the equivalent of 2.959 trees planted.

We transformed an unused space into an on-site power generation source, which allowed us to reduce operating costs and reinvest the savings in our core business.

We try to reduce pollution by embracing a 'green' lifestyle, while maintaining our production of Tags & Labels for companies.

Devices of
LED printing

In our production department we have several machines with LED technology. This gives us several advantages: very high quality, detail and durability of the prints produced, reduced footprint and consumption, easy maintenance and fast return on investment.

In October we installed a first UV LED oven for drying plastic tags, which allows us to make considerable energy savings; a 2-colour machine consuming around 15 kw/h power, with two conventional UV lamps, was replaced with a new UV LED machine with an actual consumption of around 3.5 kw/h.

We have installed this technology in other printing presses, which has led to improvements in terms of less heat emission and lower noise levels throughout the system. In addition, the UV LED inks we use are more environmentally friendly than conventional UV inks.

of Chlorophyll

Tipoesse's Green Revolution is designed to aim for a greener future.
We will continue to devise solutions to safeguard the environment, despite our excessive use of paper and plastic in the production of our Corporate Tags & Labels.

Small details make all the difference.
