Carbon Balanced Print is an easy and simple choice that will reduce the carbon impacts of your printed products.
We can offer a huge choice of paper that, together with our paper suppliers and The World Land Trust, has been carbon balanced.
Once you have chosen your Carbon Balanced Paper, you can include a unique logo on your printing to visually demonstrate your commitment to reducing your carbon impact.
Each logo features a unique reference number that is specific to your printing only, ensuring the highest possible validity and traceability.
In simple terms, carbon balanced paper is where the average carbon impact for paper production has been balanced or offset through the preservation of forests and saving of threatened habitats.
Removing greenhouse gases is naturally achieved through planting trees and good land management, this increases the amount of carbon sequestered into soil. This locks in carbon that would otherwise be released and secures continued absorption of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
Choosing Carbon Balanced Paper is an extremely positive move and helps towards meeting your company’s carbon reduction objectives.
When opting for carbon offset paper, WPG can calculate the amount of CO2 you have balanced and the area of land you have helped protect throughout the year. We can then generate a certificate that you can share and display.
This simple yet effective carbon offsetting scheme is carried out by the World Land Trust – an international conservation charity, which is backed by Sir David Attenborough, a patron, and supported by many leading scientists.
The World Land Trust (WLT) is an international conservation charity that protects the world’s most biologically significant and threatened habitats.
Their mission is to help people across the world protect and restore their land to safeguard biodiversity and the climate
This scheme has resulted in the planting of over 13 million new trees since 2006, removing nearly 3 million tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere.
Carbon Offsetting 1 tonne of paper leads to the planting of 3 trees in the UK with Forest Carbon
This scheme is certified by the Woodland Carbon Code and includes the planting of new indigenous woodland across Scotland, England, Wales and Ireland, meaning the right trees have been planted in the right places PLUS the woodland is protected in the long-term and will be properly managed.
There are also a whole host of other benefits to society too, including flood mitigation, enhanced biodiversity and increased public access.
