• Premier raises over £500K for the Woodland Trust

        • The Premier Paper Group has announced that through working with its customers, it has raised more than a half a million pounds to support the work of the Woodland Trust, funding the planting of 87.5 hectares of new native UK woodland, an area equivalent to 122 international sized football pitches.

          Premier first started working with the Woodland Trust in 2011 and by the end of 2016 the company had raised £519,000 for the charity through sales of the company’s Woodland Trust Office Paper and its Carbon Capture Programme.

          Karl Mitchell, Director of Fundraising at the Woodland Trust said, “we are really grateful for the terrific support of Premier Paper. Funding the equivalent of 122 football pitches of trees will bring a big boost to the environment – oxygen rich places for people to enjoy and visit and homes for wildlife. Premier Paper loves nothing more than joining us tree planting and clearly shares our love of trees.”

          Premier’s Carbon Capture programme gives customers the opportunity to capture the CO2 emissions from the manufacture and distribution of the paper that they buy and to help the Woodland Trust to create new native woodland that has an enormous environmental benefit right across the UK.

          Using guidelines from The Carbon Trust and DEFRA, Premier calculates the amount of CO2 generated in the production and distribution of the paper. Customers can then choose to capture the equivalent amount of CO2 by planting trees in the Government accredited Woodland Carbon scheme through the Woodland Trust.

          Premier and its customers also take a hands-on approach by supporting the Woodland Trust’s tree planting. So far they have planted a range of native species trees in woodlands across the UK, including North Wood near Livingstone, Bovey Valley in Devon and the Prince William of Gloucester Barracks in Lincolnshire and in November Premier is hosting its fourth consecutive annual tree planting event, at Heartwood Forest near St Albans.
