Carbon Balanced Paper

What is Carbon Balanced Paper?

A paper product becomes Carbon Balanced when the emissions associated with its production are balanced (offset) by the global conservation charity World Land Trust (WLT).

Contributions to the Carbon Balanced programme are used to protect land from deforestation and degradation, ensuring carbon remains locked-up within these invaluable ecosystems and their trees can continue to absorb CO2.

These habitats are being destroyed or degraded at an unprecedented rate, releasing stored carbon into the atmosphere and contributing to between 10 and 20% of global greenhouse gas emissions.
