October 2014 – The Premier Paper Group, the UK’s largest independent paper merchant with a nationwide network of regional stock holding branches, has announced the launch of a new paper for November 2014, Woodland Trust Office Paper, referred to as, ‘The Paper that Plants Trees’.

Woodland Trust Office Paper is a high white, totally chlorine free office paper, produced to the most demanding environmental standards. Ideal for use on laser and inkjet printers, photocopiers and fax machines.

Carrying the Colorlok™ logo, Woodland Trust Office Paper is available in both A4 and A3 sizes, with sample packs also available.

Its high environmental credentials include Forest Stewardship Council® certification (FSC®), Carbon Capture®, and also Nordic Ecolabel and EU Ecolabel certification.

Woodland Trust Office Paper is produced with zero CO2 emissions from fossil fuels, with much of the energy used to make the Woodland Trust Office Paper being generated from the waste materials used in the pulp and papermaking process. Excess heat from the process is also piped to a community heating project that services some 3,000 homes and civic buildings in close proximity to the mill.

Speaking about the launch of Woodland Trust Office Paper, Chris Stanyon, Director of Environmental Sales at Premier Paper Group, commented, “In a market full of ‘me too’ products Woodland Trust Office Paper is unique. It is a competitively priced office paper with the strongest environmental credentials. For sales people it is an easy concept to sell as it is simple to understand and does exactly what it says on the wrapper. The attractive, eye catching packaging design of Woodland Trust Office Paper is simple and quickly understood by customers, with more detail and substantiating facts on the reverse of the packs. The Woodland Trust brand gives a clear, unambiguous and understandable environmental message clearly demonstrating the end user’s commitment to the environment.”

The Woodland Trust

Every sheet of Woodland Trust Office Paper sold contributes directly to its work as the UK’s leading woodland conservation charity.

The Woodland Trust works tirelessly to create a UK rich in woodlands which can benefit our environment and be enjoyed and valued by everyone. Woodland not only provides a rich, bio diverse environment for wildlife but also provides us all with green, open space for rest and recreation. More than 1,000 woodlands throughout the UK are owned or managed by the Woodland Trust with free and easy year round access for us all to enjoy. Trees improve our quality of life, making our local communities and neighbourhoods greener and more pleasant places to live.

The Woodland Trust is a charity registered in England and Wales (No 294344) and in Scotland (No SC038885): To find out more go to

Carbon Capture®

The amount of CO2 generated from the production, storage and distribution of Woodland Trust Office Paper has been calculated and captured by planting trees with the Trust’s Woodland Carbon Scheme.

The scheme operates under the Government’s Woodland Carbon Code, a voluntary standard for woodland creation projects in the UK. The independent certification to this standard provides assurance and clarity about the carbon benefits of these sustainably managed woodlands. It is calculated that 25m2 of native UK woodland will capture and store one tonne of CO2 and creating large areas of new native woodland, will, over time, remove hundreds of thousands of tonnes of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
