Carbon Balanced Print
It’s always a pleasure to work with the World Land Trust on their printed projects. The latest projects include their Spring 2022 Newsletter, Donation form and a leaflet for the Operation Ocelot campaign with Steve Backshall.
Initially proofs were printed on our Jetpress digital machine with the signed off project then being printed litho which suits the longer print runs.
The newsletter is printed on revive silk recycled paper supplied by Denmaur Paper with the project being carbon balanced. Kingfisher Press is a carbon balanced printer meaning not only the stock is balanced but that as a business Kingfisher Press’s processes have also been assessed and offset.

Kingfisher Press and Carbon Balanced Print
Why should you use carbon balanced paper?
Using Carbon Balanced Paper is a simple way to reduce the carbon impacts of your marketing communications without fuss and you will be part of a global scheme to help and support not only wildlife and habitat but people and livelihoods across the world.
Kingfisher Press, Carbon Assessed and Offset
Since 2012, as a business, Kingfisher Press has balanced and offset 1,567 tonnes of CO2, which has allowed the World Land trust to protect 135 acres of critically threatened forests and habitat.
Every two years Kingfisher Press’s Carbon footprint is assessed and the resulting carbon from Scope 1 and 2 emissions, electricity, gas and fuel, is calculated. Our 2020 carbon footprint assessment was 94 tonnes of CO2 which when offset allowed the World Land trust to protect 16 acres of threatened forests.
Although it costs us to offset our print production process and entire business, when you use carbon balanced paper it very often costs you nothing at all. For very large print runs it can be a nominal amount but it demonstrates an awareness of the impact on the environment of the project. With Climate change very much on the agenda using carbon balanced paper and the associated logo demonstrates awareness of the wider environment and world we all live in.
