In our second sustainability report, we want to continue to share information with you about our initiatives and progress in the area of social and environmental responsibility. Our aim is to cover the whole value chain of our business; from where and how we source our material and components, to making sure your printer works for as long as possible and that there is a meaningful way to dispose of the 3D printing waste it produces. As well as a lot of stuff “in between”, such as developing new, more sustainable 3D printing materials, exploring how additive manufacturing technology can help solve today’s environmental and social problems, or ensuring our employees have a safe and ergonomic working environment.


A few examples of what you will find in the report:

  • We established cooperation with Precious Plastic to make the 3D printing waste recycling a bit easier.
  • We have released Product passports for Original Prusa MK4 and Original Prusa XL. Both passports includes info about the origin of the printer parts by country, the carbon footprint of the printer, info on maintenance, repairability, and spare parts and much more.

  • We have expanded Printables Brands – with the “Charities and Humanitarian” category, dedicated to nonprofit organizations. Médecins Sans Frontières use it to share (mainly) various laboratory equipment (which they have tested on their various missions) and other organizations design, for example, prosthetics or accessories that enable people with disabilities to share in the fun of playing computer games.
  • We created a new line of filaments, using recycled PLA waste & biobased pigments from food and pharmaceutical byproducts.
  • In 2023 we managed to decrease the size of Prusa Mini packaging by 38% – from the volume of 53 to 33 litres. This saves 400g of cardboard and PE foam per package.
  • Case study on how Danish Railways repair trains with 3D printing and self-extinguishing filament.
  • We established cooperation with Médecins sans Frontières. 3D printing has been successfully tested in MSF missions in Sierra Leone and South Sudan, especially for producing lab equipment. Models created by MSF are shared with the community via their Printables profile.

You will find many more examples and interesting information in the report itself.
