Keep it Green! NPS is a Certified Carbon Capture® Company
18 March 2019
Recently, we received our official certification as a Certified Carbon Capture® Company. We've always focused on being an environmentally responsible company, and now we're able to extend that offer to you!
We – like many other companies – generate harmful carbon emissions, which get out into the atmosphere and heat up the planet. One of the most effective ways to combat this is by planting trees. Trees absorb CO2 emissions and also release oxygen into the atmosphere, improving air quality.
We’re a Certified Carbon Capture® Company – but what does it mean?
This certification is part of the Carbon Capture® and Storage Scheme (CSS), which captures CO2 emissions from paper purchases and funds the replanting of native woodland in the UK. With it, we’re able to help you reduce the CO2 emissions produced in the manufacture and distribution of the paper used in your order.
When you order from us, we elect to capture the carbon emissions produced in the production and distribution of your print.
We calculate the amount of CO2 generated during the processes involved in creating your order, before passing on these figures to the Woodland Trust, along with a Carbon Capture charge to fund the plantation of new, native UK woodland.
Our status as a Certified Carbon Capture® Company is reviewed every two years, so you know we’re always operating to the highest level of environmental responsibility and efficiency.
What does this mean for you?
Not only do you get to work with an environmentally conscious print company, but your sustainable print options are now more varied than ever!
All of our paper is either FSC or PEFC accredited; and sourced from managed, sustainable forests. And, because we’re a fully carbon balanced print company, you can add the Carbon Balanced logo onto your artwork to show your customers that your print work, too, is carbon balanced.
How can I get involved?
As part of the scheme, we’re notified of Woodland Trust tree planting days in our local area. If you’re interested, we can keep you in the loop and let you know when they’re happening.
Not only is it a great day out, but it’s also a fantastic way to give back to the planet and reduce your own carbon footprint. You can contact the Woodland Trust to find out where your nearest tree-planting site is, and do your bit for carbon reduction.
Get in touch with a member of the team today to discuss sustainable print or to add the Carbon Balanced logo onto your print work.
And remember.. always #VOTEPRINT.
