Carbon Balanced Programme – Carbon Balanced Paper

Carbon Balanced Printer Meet up

In March we had our Carbon Balanced Print Partners meet up and its always uplifting to hear from the World Land Trust. This year Emma Douglas and Richard Cuthbert talked us through the World Land Trust projects and plans for the future. Jonathan Porritt talked about 2023 being the warmest year, El Nino, 30 for 30 and the climate and biodiversity crisis we are facing.

Kingfisher Press and the World Land Trust

Kingfisher Press has worked with the World Land Trust for over 15 years and been a Carbon Balanced Printer since 2012. Over the years we have met many inspiring people with such a great passion and knowledge for what they do.

What we really like about the World Land Trust is that they don’t just buy up land, but they to help fund land purchase, wildlife reserve management and rangers’ salaries with local conservation NGOs. The projects benefit habitats, endangered species and the local people who are supported in protecting and managing the land where they live.

You can find out more about the World Land Trust and their projects here: https://www.worldlandtrust.org/what-we-do/

World Land Trust have 60 projects in 27 countries and their aim is to avoid the emissions of 50,000,000 tons of CO2 between 2021 and 2025, and you can help by using carbon balanced paper and better still partner with a carbon balanced printer.

Kingfisher Press – A Carbon Balanced Printer

As a carbon balanced printer, Kingfisher Press as a business, have had our carbon footprint assessed and offset with Wold Land Trust so your printed project can be carbon balanced from start to finish, not just the paper it is printed on but the entire process.

If you use carbon balanced paper throughout the year, or for a particular project, you can have a certificate to demonstrate the carbon you have balanced/offset and the amount of threatened forest you have helped to save. What a great thing to be able to share with your clients.
