Carbon Capture

Did you know woodland is the second largest sink of CO2 after the oceans? The UK has just 13% woodland cover compared to the European average of 37%.

Environmental issues are becoming more and more important to organisations of all sizes and a carbon reduction strategy often provides a commercial advantage, the Carbon Capture programme goes one step further.

What is Carbon Capture?

The Carbon Capture programme mitigates the CO2 emissions from the production and distribution of paper and materials, purchased from Premier and gives customers and their clients the opportunity to join with many major brands and fully engage with, and directly support the work of the Woodland Trust – 100% of the money raised through Carbon Capture goes directly to the Woodland Trust to plant native woodland in the UK.

How does it work?

The average amount of CO2 emitted from the manufacture and distribution of a tonne of paper has been calculated, this calculation is verified by the Woodland Trust using Carbon Trust and DEFRA figures.

When an organisation elects to Carbon Capture their paper purchases, the amount is shown as a separate line on their invoices. Signing up to Carbon Capture brings many benefits and cause related marketing opportunities such as tree planting events around the UK.

How much does it cost?

  • The CO2 charge is £10 plus VAT per tonne equivalent to 2p per ream of A4 80gsm or 12p per ream of SRA2 100gsm
  • 100% of the Carbon Capture charge goes directly to the Woodland Trust
