We voluntarily contribute to 2 environmental schemes operated by our paper suppliers.
The first scheme is the Carbon Capture Programme, which is a partnership between Premier Paper Group and The Woodland Trust. (https://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/partnerships/our-partners/premier-paper/)
Palm Print is a member of the Carbon Capture Programme which demonstrates our commitment to resolving environmental issues. In short, this means we recognise the environmental impact of our business and are working to reduce this.
How does it work?
The Carbon Capture Programme works by adding a premium to the paper we use in our work which is then used in planting trees to reverse the carbon created from production.
The Woodland Trust uses the capital generated from this scheme to create native woodland areas all around the UK. (https://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/)
The second scheme is Carbon Balanced Paper, available through our supplier Antalis.
Palm Print have committed to pay for all material purchased through Antalis to be used to balance Carbon emissions by funding the World Land Trust's work.
How does it work?
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.
Our paper merchants are also ISO14001 registered, demonstrating their ongoing commitment to helping the environment.
Both are registered to supply us with FSC and PEFC certified materials.
