Following the news that Antalis now has the ability to carbon offset any product across its papers, packaging and visual communication range, the company has now carbon balanced the entire Arjowiggins Creative Papers range – right to a customer’s door.
Working in partnership with World Land Trust, Antalis has taken the decision to carbon balance every product in its Arjowiggins Creative Papers range.
This offer is made in collaboration with World Land Trust, through its Carbon Balanced Paper scheme, with Antalis balancing the unavoidable carbon emissions that are emitted in the sourcing, production and transportation. The money raised by the balancing of the entire range supports World Land Trust projects in Vietnam, one of the most biologically diverse countries on Earth. To date, 16,000 acres of standing forest at threat of clearance has been protected – the equivalent of 9080 football pitches. World Land Trust has enabled approximately 169,000 tonnes of carbon emissions to be absorbed every year, whilst also protecting 41 threatened, endangered and critically endangered wildlife species.
Commenting on the decision, Bruce Munro, national sales director for papers – Antalis UK, said: ‘The demand for sustainable solutions by end users has never been higher, and we know the print and design community that we serve is looking for support to answer that call. The offering to carbon balance the likes of Rives, Olin, Conqueror, Pop’set and Keaykolour – that already benefit from a naturally lower carbon footprint as they are produced in Scotland – will be much simpler for our customers. No carbon conversion calculations, no administration overhead, and a dedicated logo that they can use on their printed communications to show their commitment to the environment. A sensible and clear solution to a problem that we must all globally act on.’
