Carbon Offset Products

Carbon offset projects provide you with an immediate and cost effective way to reduce your company's carbon emissions and support essential projects that would not otherwise happen.

Choosing to Carbon offset the carbon emissions of the products purchased will not only provide the project funding, but also boost your reputation, demonstrate leadership, help you meet your stakeholder's interest and help you stand out from your competition.

Carbon offsetting costs as little as £1 for 100kgs of product purchased. Which is also equivalent of 40 reams of A4 80gsm paper.

Carbon Balanced Paper

Carbon Balanced Paper

Carbon Balancing is where the carbon impacts of a product or service have been estimated and an equivalent amount of carbon dioxide is either prevented from being released into, or is absorbed from, the atmosphere.

Carbon Balancing is facilitated by the World Land Trust, an international conservation charity, through the preservation of high conservation value forests.

Through land purchase of ecologically important standing forests under threat of clearance, carbon is locked that would otherwise be released. These protected forests are then able to continue absorbing carbon from the atmosphere. Referred to as REDD (Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation), this is now recognised as one of the most cost-effective and swiftest ways to arrest the rise atmospheric CO2 and global warming effects.

What is Carbon Balanced Paper?

It’s paper for which the carbon impact of the production and distribution process has been balanced, or offset, by the World Land Trust – an international conservation charity.

When you choose Carbon Balanced Paper you can include a unique logo on your print run: an instant, high-visibility seal that demonstrates your commitment to reducing your carbon impact, and enhances your brand.

Antalis paper products rated with either 3, 4 or 5 green stars are eligible for Carbon Balancing.  There is a wide choice of eligible paper ranges available, to suit every aspect of communications, from everyday stationery to high-impact corporate brochures. All have been selected because of their powerful combination of sustainability and performance. Made from certified fibre, they provide probably the widest range of papers available in the UK – meaning no compromises, just compelling communications. Together, they can help you demonstrate a total CR commitment.

So in a nutshell, it's good for the planet, and it's good for business.

Today, a carbon reduction strategy is a competitive advantage. Tomorrow, it will be standard business practice. Using paper where the carbon impacts have been balanced by the World Land Trust will help your company meet and exceed its environmental policy targets, affordably and effectively.

Forest Carbon Woodland Paper

Forest Carbon Woodland Paper

More and more businesses understand the value of a carbon management and reduction programme: meeting customer demand, reducing costs and differentiating from competitors. Carbon compensating products enables businesses to demonstrate their commitment to managing and reducing their carbon footprint with the purchase of products that have reduced carbon emissions.

 

 

How does it work?

For every tonne of eligible product purchased, we will ensure that one tonne of CO₂ is captured in new UK woodlands, certified under the government ’Woodland Carbon Code.

How is it all quality assured?

Certification of new woodlands under the Government’s Woodland Carbon Code tells us that:

• The right trees have been planted, in the right place
• New woodland’s estimated carbon capture is conservative and scientifically sound
• The woodland is protected in the long term and will be properly managed
• Transparent and traceable carbon credits are issued to buyers


Why UK woodlands?

UK woodlands provide multiple local benefits, including recreational space, employment, flood mitigation, water quality improvement and the capture of CO₂ and other atmospheric pollutants.

Antalis at Thorney Coppice

Forest Carbon has planted all types of woodlands; woodlands with open spaces, woodlands with footpaths, woodlands for communities and woodlands for sustainable timber, ranging from 5 acres to 500, for partners from FTSE100 to sole trader, and in locations north of Scotland to the south coast of England to the west of Wales (plus one in Northern Ireland). Antalis Carbon Compensated products will be invested in Thorney Coppice, a mixed coniferous and native broadleaf productive woodland, just outside Kettering, Northants, between the A4300 and the A6116. Oak has been chosen as it is a native species that already forms a high proportion of the trees in the surrounding woodland and is proven to grow very well on local soils. Trees will be variously thinned and replanted, with the Norway spruce acting as a nurse crop for the oaks. The woodland will also improve connectivity for some existing woodland sites.

Eligible products

Choose from a wide range of paper products rated with either 3, 4 or 5 green stars. These are eco-responsible products and therefore carbon compensating for the unavoidable carbon dioxide emissions is a good way to mitigate carbon.
