• Premier Paper staff and customers plant 13,000 trees in Derbyshire

        • Premier Paper invited 300 of its Carbon Capture customers and their customer’s clients to take part in their annual tree planting day with the Woodland Trust in Derbyshire on Thursday 21st November. 

          Joined by TV’s Julia Bradbury and the Outdoor Guide, the tree planters met at the Woodland Trust’s Heanor site in Derbyshire and were greeted with fresh breakfast sandwiches, hot coffees and teas. After a series of brief introductions, the intrepid eco-warriors took to the fields armed with spade, wellies and determination, despite the bitterly cold November air.

          The tree planting took place near Heanor in Derbyshire, previously the site of a former opencast mine the area has been transformed into a haven for wildlife and people. The Woodland Trust plan to develop the site further, creating the Young People’s Forest – a giant classroom for children and young people aged 10-20; they’ll be planting trees, learning about nature as well as designing, delivering and taking in part in activities. 

          As the day came to an end the final number of trees that had been planted totalled 13,000, more than twice as many as the previous planting day. Amongst the saplings that were planted were maple, oak and silver birch, hawthorn and hazel – all of which are broadleaf trees native the UK.

          Hussein Ismail, Premier Paper’s CSR Marketing Manager said, “the day has been a great achievement, thank you to everyone who helped to make the day successful. It’s our customers’ hard work and dedication to the Carbon Capture programme that helps to drive the campaign forward. The 13,000 trees planted today will provide cleaner air, safe habitats for wildlife and green spaces for people to enjoy for generations to come. Through our annual tree planting events, I think our customers plant a piece of themselves; Carbon Capture is their legacy.”

          Carbon Capture is an environmental initiative. Premier Paper offer their customers and their customers’ clients with the opportunity to mitigate the CO2 emissions from their product purchases by planting new native woodland in the UK with the Woodland Trust.
