Why Carbon Balanced Paper

There’s been a revolution in the past two decades. And you’ve been part of it.

Paper is now regarded as one of the world’s great sustainable products. It’s biodegradable, recyclable and made from a renewable raw material.

Carbon Balanced Paper in partnership with World Land Trust is the next step. It’s come at a time when business and consumers are looking for every way they can to reduce their carbon impacts.

Why cut carbon?

Carbon management is good for the planet and for business.

Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives now dictate the esteem in which brands are held, and pro-low carbon statements from business leaders such as the Copenhagen Communiqué, which called for reductions in carbon emissions of 50-85% by 2050, indicate clearly the importance business now attaches to the issue.

The low-carbon economy is on its way. Today, a carbon reduction strategy is a competitive advantage. Tomorrow, it will be standard business practice. Using paper where the carbon impacts have been balanced by the World Land Trust will help your company meet and exceed its environmental policy targets, affordably and effectively.

And, by using the Carbon Balanced Paper on-product logo, a business can convey that success on all their printed material.

Carbon balancing in action

Sitting within the Indo-Burma hotspot, Vietnam is a long, narrow country of mountains and tropical forests. It runs the length of the eastern Indochina peninsula and spans a wide range of latitudes, giving rise to an exceptional diversity of habitats and species, with high levels of endemism.

One of the most biologically diverse countries on Earth, Vietnam is of international conservation importance, harbouring around 10 per cent 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.
