We are thrilled be one of just a handful of certified Carbon Balanced Printers in the UK. We are proud to support the fantastic work World Land Trust are doing to protect some of the world’s most biologically significant and threatened habitats. Denmore Press are the first World Land Trust certified carbon-balanced printer in Scotland. Currently, we have balanced 84 tonnes of CO2, helping to protect and restore 14.5 acres of threatened habitat. We can now offer fully carbon balanced paper and print to our clients and print the logo on the materials and issue certification on job completion.
What is Carbon Balanced Print?
Carbon Balanced Print is the highest statement of integrity for users and producers of printed products. Alongside the use of Carbon Balanced Paper, it is produced by a Carbon Balanced Printer – a printer that has measured and balanced the impacts of its fossil fuel usage, vehicle impacts and electricity consumption. These emissions are third-party verified and balanced (offset) with international conservation charity World Land Trust (WLT).WLT offsets these emissions by protecting threatened habitats that would otherwise have been lost, avoiding the release of stored carbon. This also enables the regeneration of degraded habitats, which gradually re-absorb atmospheric CO2.
