What started off in 2008 as a simple idea to give UK businesses the choice to mitigate the CO2 emissions from the paper that they buy has blossomed into something very special. Carbon Capture is now the market leading environmental initiative. Premier Paper offer their customers and their customers’ clients the opportunity to mitigate the CO2 emissions from their product purchases by planting new native woodland in the UK with the Woodland Trust and by doing so, demonstrate their environmental values to all their stakeholders. Through Premier Paper, Carbon Capture customers have access to a wealth of marketing support including unique Carbon Capture logos, regular updates and certificates that detail the amount of CO2 captured, brochures, posters, email campaigns and much more.
November 2019 saw over 530 of Premier Paper’s customers now fully signed up to the initiative and the total sum of money raised by the Carbon Capture programme has surpassed an incredible £1,000,000 all of which has come from sales of Carbon Capture paper.
On 21st November, Premier Paper invited 300 of their Carbon Capture customers and their customers’ clients to take part in their annual tree planting day with the Woodland Trust in Derbyshire. 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. As the day came to an end the final amount of trees that had been planted totalled a staggering 13,000, more than twice as many as the previous planting day.
