Carbon Balanced Paper

Copy Color Limited is pleased to announce that our stock boards and papers of silk, gloss and recycled are now Carbon Balanced. For organisations focusing on limiting their effects on climate change by minimising carbon impacts throughout the supply chain, Carbon Balanced Paper is the obvious solution that will reduce the carbon footprint of paper based communications.

Carbon Balanced put simply is where the carbon impacts of that product or service has been estimated and an equivalent amount of carbon is either prevented from being released or absorbed from the atmosphere. Balancing is facilitated by the World Land Trust (WLT), an ecological charity. This ensures Copy Color Limited customers and their clients have the peace of mind of how carbon impacts are balanced (offset).
