• Antalis to offer universal carbon offsetting

        • Antalis UK has announced that all material purchased from across its papers, packaging and visual communications ranges can now be carbon offset, with some paper ranges already supplied as full carbon balanced.

          Working together with partners from Forest Carbon and World Land Trust, Antalis is able to calculate the kilograms of carbon emissions it takes to procure any material type including plastics, aluminium composite material and nylon. These carbon credits can be purchased by customers to support the creation of new UK woodlands (via Forest Carbon and the Antalis Woodlands) or to preserve global forests (via Forest Carbon in South America; or a World Land Trust project in Vietnam). Customers also have the choice to support a blend of all three options.

          Antalis’ partner Forest Carbon leads the way in voluntary carbon woodland creation in the UK and abroad. Since 2006 it has planted more than 8 million trees in the UK, and a further 2.5 million overseas, equating to the removal of over 2.5 million tonnes of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

          Matthew Botfield, CSR Manager at Antalis said, “sustainability is at the heart of what we do. Every day, we are working towards reducing our own environmental footprint while also providing innovative solutions to our customers. Antalis is proud to support customers in offsetting their own carbon emissions and to give them clear choices in support of UK or global schemes. For example, here in the UK customers can choose to plant trees, maximising their own social media and marketing opportunities.

          “Both our schemes are backed up with relevant certificates and logos to help them reassure their customers that they are operating as sustainably as possible.”

          In collaboration with World Land Trust, through their Carbon Balanced Paper scheme, Antalis is enabling its customers to balance the unavoidable carbon emissions of paper-based products. The money raised 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.
