Paper Made Carbon Neutral
Applies to the paper (stock) we print on for our packaging that has had its carbon dioxide and greenhouse gas emissions calculated; reduced where possible; and ‘offset’ through credits that fund renewable emission free energy products. Calculations have been independently audited and include scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions from raw material (seedling) through to customer (warehouses or printer). Carbon neutral papers used for our packaging fall under this cradle to customer model. Meaning the auditors have accounted for and offset all the greenhouse gas emissions for the actual processes that take place up until we hand the paper over. This measurement allows the printer the claim of ‘printing on carbon neutral paper’ and the use of the ‘paper made carbon neutral logo’.
Responsible Forestry Practices
Fibre used in the production of our paper (stock) is sourced from pulp suppliers who practice responsible forestry techniques and/or use paper from managed plantation forests.
Our chosen paper (stock) is made up of recycled fibres which have been extracted from existing paper products, to be used in the manufacture of further paper products. Recycled paper can be 100% recycled or consist of a mixture of pre and post consumer waste along with some virgin fibre to add strength.
