A Carbon Balanced Publication Printer is one of the highest statements of environmental integrity and credibility for both the end user and those who provide paper based communications. It confirms that the carbon impacts of the whole production of a printed item has been estimated and balanced (offset). The accreditation recognises excellence in environmental performance across the entire spectrum of a company’s operations and services.
This prestigious accreditation demonstrates commitment to the environment by assessing and calculating the corporate carbon footprint. The resultant carbon emissions are carbon balanced (offset) by ecological charity, the World Land Trust, by preserving endangered tropical forests that would otherwise be removed.
“Previously we could only offer a range of carbon balanced papers but this Certification means that we have mapped our operational footprint to defined boundaries and that has been verified. It shows our commitment to the environment as a business and helps to support our clients in their own green and CSR policies. Many of our clients are familiar with FSC and recycled stocks but this gives us another opportunity to stand out from competitors and demonstrate care and commitment to the environment in which we live and work. We already work closely with the World Land Trust and are delighted that we can support their invaluable work. ” Paul Tomlin, Kingfisher Press Ltd MD.
