• Premier to plant 5,000 trees for native UK forest woodland

        • Paper merchant, The Premier Paper Group, has announced that it is planning to hold another tree planting action day, where it will aim to plant around 1,000 trees for each year of its five-year association with The Woodland Trust.

          Premier plans to take 200 staff and customers to help assist with planting a variety of native tree species, on the 24th November, at the Woodland Trust-owned Heartwood Forest in Hertfordshire. This latest tree planting feat is the third successive Premier tree planting event to take place at Heartwood Forest, an marks the five year anniversary of the association with The Woodland Trust.

          Dave Jones, Premier Paper Group, Marketing Director said, “our Carbon Capture programme has gone from strength to strength over the last 5 years with over 380 customers now fully engaged with the scheme, with 100% of the revenue raised from the Carbon Capture programme going directly to the Woodland Trust, making a real contribution to the creation of new native woodland across the UK.

          “The success of Carbon Capture is that it is a great way for organisations to demonstrate their environmental values to their stakeholders. The programme provides support with marketing communication material, certificates from the Woodland Trust detailing the amount of CO₂ captured and the opportunity for organisations to invite their customers and stakeholders to come and take part in tree planting days.”

          “Woodland creation in the UK not only locks up CO₂ but creates important habitats for wildlife and green spaces for local communities.”

          Over the past year customers who participated and engaged in Premier’s Carbon Capture scheme have helped to plant over 55,000 trees with the Woodland Trust, all of which has helped to capture around 11,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions.
