|AlphaGraphics Nottingham spurred to change
An enquiry from a public sector customer about Carbon Balanced papers has led AlphaGraphics Nottingham to convert its own stationery to a PaperCo product, Advocate Extreme White.
"We had heard about Carbon Balanced Paper, so called in our local PaperCo account manager from Rothera & Brereton so that we could go to our customer with detailed information," says Jeremy Thompson-Jewitt, managing director. "My team was briefed and we made the decision that this would work for us so we are in the process of adopting Advocate Extreme White for all our stationery."
AlphaGraphics Nottingham had already measured its carbon footprint and committed to reducing it. The business is ISO 14001 certified and an FSC approved supplier which uses Chain of Custody stocks whenever it can. It is also committed to waste reduction.
"We believe offering Carbon Balanced Paper will be of huge interest to many of our customers and we are well prepared to take this message out to our market. On our web site we state that we do more than just design, copy and print - we help our customers communicate and for many a message about sustainability is really important these days," says Mr Thompson-Jewitt.
"Carbon Balanced" means that the carbon impacts of a given product have been estimated and an equivalent amount of carbon is balanced through an ecological charity, The World Land Trust.
Users of Carbon Balanced papers can use the The World Land Trust logo by registering their job at paperco.co.uk/carbonbalancedpaper..
