The Carbon Capture® programme.
Our paper is planting trees.
Partnering with Premier Paper, we are supporting the Woodland Trust’s Woodland Carbon Scheme, planting trees and capturing CO2 across the UK.
Woodland is the second largest sink of CO2 after the oceans. It is a precious
ecosystem that improves air and water quality, prevents soil erosion, reduces
flood risk, supports biodiversity, provides a source of sustainable low-carbon
fuel, and offers people a space to enjoy and engage with.
We are helping to establish new native woodlands across the UK with Premier
Paper’s Carbon Capture® programme in partnership with the Woodland Trust’s Woodland Carbon scheme. The scheme allows organisations to mitigate their
carbon emissions by funding tree planting under the government’s 2011
Woodland Carbon Code.
Through the programme, we pay a Carbon Capture Charge which is calculated
on the CO2 emissions generated by the production, storage and distribution
of the paper we buy. Our payment goes in full to the Woodland Trust to fund
tree planting across the UK.
The Carbon Capture® programme benefits us and our customers through
the opportunity to mitigate carbon and demonstrate our commitment to sustainability – and there’s even the chance to get our hands dirty as everyone
is welcome to join the folks from Premier Paper and the Woodland Trust
on a planting day!
