Green Credentials

The general public have a miss conception regarding the paper trade, it’s their assumption the majority of paper comes from trees felled in the rain forests. Listed below are a few bullet points to help you gain a more informed overview of the Printing Industry.

  • In Europe, the area covered by forest increases by the equivalent of 3,403 football pitches every year
  • 90% of all paper comes from trees grown in managed forests in Europe, for every tree harvested two are planted
  • Paper and print accounts for just 1% of the worlds greenhouse gas emissions, making it one of the lowest emitting industry sectors
  • The greenhouse gas emissions produced by a single newspaper during its entire lifecycle, is equivalent to a car journey of half a mile
  • 92% of the water used by Europe’s paper makers, is returned to the environment in good condition
  • National Geographic’s magazine estimates that a year’s worth of its issues has a carbon footprint of 9.84kg, equivalent to burning just one gallon of petrol
  • In the UK 82% of magazines are recycled after being read

When viewing emails, remember…

It is OK to print emails, paper is a biodegradable, renewable, sustainable product made from trees. Growing and harvesting trees provides jobs for millions of people throughout the world. Working forests are good for the environment, providing clean air, clean water, and wildlife habitat and carbon storage.
