Carbon Capture Programme
What we've achieved!
66,712 tonnes of CO2 captured – that’s as heavy as around 13,500 elephants!
Over £1.1 million raised for the Woodland Trust to date.
Over 266,000 trees planted (166.78 hectares) so far - that’s enough to stretch over 142 miles – roughly the distance from London to Sheffield if planted in a straight line.
What is Carbon Capture?
A method of mitigating CO2 emissions and provides a reduced carbon solution for organisations
A unique market leading, high impact, low cost environmental programme with tangible benefits
Creates native woodland in the UK and provides habitats for wildlife and green spaces for all to enjoy
A demonstration of an organisations values and responsible approach to the environment
How does it work?
We are offering customers and their clients the opportunity to capture the CO2 emissions from their paper/print purchases by planting native woodland, right here in the UK, through the Woodland Trust and the Woodland Carbon scheme.
We have elected to Carbon Capture all our paper purchases via our paper supplier
The average amount of CO2 emitted from the manufacture and distribution of a tonne of paper has been calculated
The Calculation has been verified by the Woodland Trust using Carbon Trust and DEFRA figures
The Woodland Carbon logo may be used in conjunction with your print job to demonstrate your commitment to the environment
100% of the Carbon Capture charges are paid directly to the Woodland Trust and new woodland is planted at their accredited sites across the UK
The pressure on organisations to demonstrate good emission management and sustainability initiatives is growing
The UK Government Climate Change Act requiring that greenhouse gas emissions reduce by 80% by 2050 (against 1990 levels)
Quoted companies on the London Stock Exchange were required to report their annual greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions
Many large organisations, Government departments, local authorities, universities, colleges and schools are already committing to carbon reduction initiatives and are benefiting from demonstrating their environmental values to their stakeholders
Businesses are increasingly expected to report their green credentials, from annual reports, to sales tenders and external communications
The CO2 captured can be used and stated in company reports under guidelines for voluntary schemes. Carbon Capture can be considered as a charitable sponsorship and can be deducted from business profits before tax
Woodland Carbon & Woodland Trust
Woodland is the second largest sink of CO2 after the oceans
The CO2 is captured by the planting of trees in new native woodland here in the UK, through the Woodland Trust’s
Government backed Woodland Carbon Scheme
The scheme operates under the HM Government’s 2011 Woodland Carbon Code www.woodlandcarbon.co.uk
100% of the Carbon Capture charge goes directly to the Woodland Trust to plant native woodland in the UK
The Woodland Trust is the leading UK woodland conservation charity (Charity no. 294344 /SCO38885)
Woodland Trust’s aim is to protect and develop natural woodland throughout the UK thereby protecting our natural heritage
The Trust owns and manages over 1,000 free-to-visit woodland sites across the UK
The UK has just 13% woodland cover compared to the European average of 37%
