Environmental Impact and Our Carbon Capture Commitment
The print trade and the environment, are acres of positivity
The myth about paper being used in print is bad for the environment. This is far from the case, paper is highly recycled and naturally sustainable. Thanks to FSC and PEFC schemes forests are sustainably managed, this is evident in European forests as there were only minor fluctuations in the forest bird index showing a stable biodiversity.
Paper is highly and in Europe, it is used an average of 3.8 times and 56% of the fibrous raw material used comes from recycling. For paper packaging, the recycling rate is even higher, with 83% of paper and cardboard packaging being recycled in Europe. Paper is the most recycled packaging material, followed by metal (80%), glass (75%) and plastic (42%).
What is the Carbon Capture Scheme?
Fineprint has signed up for the Carbon Capture Scheme and as such are offering customers and their clients the opportunity to capture the CO2 emissions from their paper purchases by planting native woodland, right here in the UK, through the Woodland Trust and the Woodland Carbon scheme.
When you place your print order you may elect to capture the carbon from the manufacture and distribution of the paper
The amount of CO2 generated in the production and delivery of your print is calculated
The Woodland Carbon logo may be used in conjunction with the print job to demonstrate your commitment to using reduced CO2 paper
All Carbon Capture charges will be paid to the Woodland Trust who will plant woodland at one of their accredited woodland creation sites in the UK
If you would like to know more about the Carbon Capture scheme - please get in touch with us.
