Antalis carbon balances entire Arjowiggins creative papers range

Working in partnership with World Land Trust, Antalis has taken the bold decision to carbon balance every product in its Arjowiggins creative papers range

This move adds a further string to the range’s bow, taking that knowledge, heritage and expertise and bringing it to market in a way that protects all of our futures.

This offer is made in collaboration with World Land Trust, through their carbon balanced paper scheme, with Antalis balancing the unavoidable carbon emissions that are emitted in the sourcing, production and transportation of this stunning range. The money raised by the balancing of the entire range supports World Land Trust projects in Vietnam, one of the most biologically diverse countries on earth.

To date, 16,000 acres of standing forest at threat of clearance has been protected – the equivalent of 9,080 football pitches. World Land Trust has enabled approximately 169,000 tonnes of carbon emissions to be absorbed every year, whilst also protecting 41 threatened, endangered and critically endangered wildlife species.

Commenting on the decision, Bruce Munro, national sales director for papers, Antalis UK, said: “The demand for sustainable solutions by end-users has never been higher, and we know the print and design community that we serve is looking for support to answer that call. The offering to carbon balance the likes of Rives, Olin, Conqueror, Pop’set and Keaykolour – that already benefit from a naturally lower carbon footprint as they are produced in Scotland – will be much simpler for our customers. No carbon conversion calculations, no administration overhead, and a dedicated logo that they can use on their printed communications to show their commitment to the environment. A sensible and clear solution to a problem that we must all globally act on.”
