Carbon Balanced Paper
We are delighted to announce that all our paper and board used in the manufacturing of our Frisk surfaces are now carbon balanced.
Carbon Balancing is delivered in partnership with World Land Trust, an international conservation charity, through the protection and restoration of threatened forests in the tropics. Protecting carbon-rich habitats avoids the release of stored carbon and enables the regeneration of degraded habitats, which gradually re-absorb atmospheric CO2. These same habitats are home to dozens of threatened species, meaning the benefits of choosing Carbon Balanced Paper exceed far beyond carbon offsetting alone.
A paper becomes Carbon Balanced when the average emissions associated with its production are offset by the global conservation charity World Land Trust (WLT).
WLT achieve this by protecting threatened habitats that would otherwise have been lost, avoiding the release of stored carbon. This also enables the regeneration of degraded habitats, which gradually re-absorb atmospheric CO2.
These habitats are being destroyed or degraded at an unprecedented rate, releasing stored carbon into the atmosphere and contributing to between 10 and 20% of global greenhouse gas emissions.
