Carbon Balanced Paper
Carbon Balanced Paper is a simple way for organisations to reduce the carbon impacts of their paper and printed communications, reducing their carbon footprint and impacts on climate change.
Carbon Balancing is delivered in partnership with World Land Trust, an international conservation charity, through the protection and restoration of threatened forests in the tropics.
Protecting carbon-rich habitats avoids the release of stored carbon and enables the regeneration of degraded habitats, which gradually re-absorb atmospheric CO2. These same habitats are home to dozens of threatened species, meaning the benefits of choosing Carbon Balanced Paper exceed far beyond carbon offsetting alone.
Making a real difference
One of the most biologically diverse countries on Earth, Vietnam harbors around 10% of the world’s species. It is also one of the fastest growing economies in the world, which is putting immense pressure on its exceptional biodiversity.
With funding from the Carbon Balanced programme, WLT is working with local partner Viet Nature to conserve the forests of Khe Nuoc Trong (KNT), Vietnam.
KNT is an essential habitat for 40 globally threatened species, including Southern White-Cheeked Gibbon, Crested Argus and the Red Shanked Douc, one of the world’s most endangered monkeys.
World Land Trust
